The Czech Republic, Switzerland and Sweden secured places in the Men's World Floorball Championship quarter-finals as the group stage concluded in Helsinki.

Slovakia ensured their participation with a third consecutive Group C victory, with their team overcoming Thailand 15-2.

Poland secured second spot in the standings by beating the United States 18-0.
