Luca Graf, Pascal Meier and Tim Braillard are the faces of the Mens World Floorball Championships 2022, taking place November 5-13, in Zurich and Winterthur. The three national players will be the focus of the communication campaign around the WFC and represent Swiss floorball.
Luca Graf, Pascal Meier, Tim Braillard – these names have been shaping Swiss floorball for years, but they are only known to a few outside the floorball community. This is set to change in the upcoming months. The three top performers on the Swiss national floorball team will be at the center of communications surrounding the WFC 2022 and will soon be known to a wider audience.
Swiss sports enthusiasts will experience the three athletes up close on their way from the World Floorball Championships in Helsinki in December 2021 to the World Floorball Championships 2022 in their own country, cheer along with them and get to know them better as players and personalities.
Meier is considered one of the best floorball goalkeepers in the world. The secure backstop for the Swiss national team showed his skills in over 100 international games. The goalkeeper playing for GC Unihockey has already played in five WFCs. Most recently at the WFC 2018 in Prague, where he was instrumental in winning the bronze medal. He was the first goalkeeper, the first Swiss and the first non-finalist to be voted MVP of the tournament. For his performance, he was nominated MVP of the Year of the Swiss Sports Awards. National coach David Jansson appreciates Pascal Meiers mental strength and meticulous preparation.
The experienced defender, who is playing for IK Sirius in the Swedish league this season, is not only convincing with his defensive work, but also likes to whirl offensively. He has already scored 25 goals and 39 assists in 90 international games. Jansson likes to use Graf in 1-on-1 play with the ball, as he is very strong there. His confidence also makes him a key player in the important games.
The intelligent striker of Alligator Malans knows how to put his teammates but also himself in perfect finishing positions. In 68 international games he already scored 30 goals and delivered 48 assists. National coach David Jansson points out his excellent passing game and his leader qualities.
