BROOMBALL HISTORY

There is no known fully accurate history of broomball. The consensus is that modern broomball originated in Canada. Some think it came about by trying to play ice hockey without ice skates. However, recent research indicates that a sport similar to broomball, known as knattleikr, was played in Iceland in the 10th century. The sport was almost considered warfare, with the occasional death not uncommon, and games could involve whole villages.

The first recorded broomball games in North America were in Toronto in 1909, although there is some evidence to suggest broomball was being played as early as the 1890s. From Canada the game spread south to the United States, becoming especially popular in Minnesota, where by the 1960s a broomball community was thriving.
