This was the first world championships under the International Floorball Federation's (IFF) FIFA-like continental qualification system. A total of 32 countries had registered for this event, which is the most nations to ever register for an IFF-sanctioned world championship event. The previous record was 29 for the 2008 Men's World Floorball Championships.

QualifyingEdit

Under the IFF's new qualification system, the 32 countries registered for the world championships had to qualify for only 16 spots. 8 of these spots had already been pre-determined, with the top 7 teams from the 2008 Men's World Floorball Championships A-Division and the top team from the B-Division automatically qualifying. This left just 8 spots for the other 24 registered countries.

The countries already qualified are as follows:

  Czech Republic      Finland
  Germany   Latvia
  Norway   Russia
  Sweden    Switzerland          

Asia/OceaniaEdit

Qualifying in the Asia/Oceanian region for the world championships will be overseen by the Asia Oceania Floorball Confederation (AOFC).

Only 3 out of 5 registered AOFC countries qualified. The 5 countries were as follows:

  Australia                 Singapore           
  Japan   Korea
