Floorball is an indoor team sport similar to hockey only for men. Floorball is usually played in gyms on an area of 40×20 meters bordered by boards 50 centimetres high with little plastic balls and special hockey sticks. In floorball, there are basically five players with sticks and a goalkeeper without any special equipment. The goalkeeper has only special jersey and helmet. The formations are very similar to ice hockey. Both teams play with 3 attackers, 2 defenders and a goalkeeper. They can relieve whenever they want. Floorball is played 3×20 minutes with 15 minutes breaks.
