WHY IS IT WORTH STAYING FOR THE FINALS ON SUNDAY? | nov 23 2019

Even if your team won’t get to the finals, we would be glad if you stay in Prague until the very end of the tournament. Together we can make great atmosphere for the best teams playing against each other and fighting for the Cup. And let’s face it, if you were in their shoes, you would love to play such a special game like Prague Floorball Cup final in front of hundreds of spectators. Come and make this exciting day unforgettable!

PRAGUE FLOORBALL CUP 2020 FINALS will take place on Sunday in two locations, UNYP ARENA Podvinný mlýn and TJ Sokol Královské Vinohrady.

UNYP ARENA, also called Arena Podvinný mlýn, hosted the PFC final day in previous years and this year will be no exception. It is one of the most modern and best equipped floorball venues in Central Europe and currently this place is home of Czech “Superliga” team Sparta Praha. If Prague hosts an EFT tournament, it usually takes place here as well as various non-floorball sport events. This venue can fit up to 1300 spectators. During the last year, the surface on the field was completely renewed. And a big screen will be installed especially for the purpose of Prague Floorball Cup. See the list of PFC halls to find the instructions to get there.


Second venue for the finals will be TJ Sokol Královské Vinohrady, our main PFC hall located very close to the city centre, only 5 minutes walk from Metro station Jiřího z Poděbrad. It is a famous historical building made in functionalist style for the purpose of Sokol, a gymnastics and body-mind balance movement for people of all age founded in Prague in the 19th century. Except convenient location and historical genius loci, this place has another advantage. From Friday to Sunday you can find there our FUN ZONE offering many fun activities. We will tell you more about them very soon...

What do you look forward the most about the tournament?

choice for us and we look forward to meeting with and competing against the best Czech

floorball clubs.
