The Finnish national team goalkeeper Eero Kosonen, who is playing for the Swedish side Växjö Vipers, has signed a two-year contract with Salming.
Kosonen was named the best floorball goalie in the world last season. His efforts in the WC final against Sweden were absolutely crucial to Finland taking the gold medals.
Pär Eriksson, sales manager at Salming Floorball, said “We are extremely happy and proud to get the opportunity to work together with Eero Kosonen for the next two years, he is an extremely important player, not only for his club Växjö Vipers, but also for the Finnish national team.
“What Salming saw in Eero is his focus, he never leaves anything to chance. He is also genuinely interested in his equipment and will be able to give constructive feedback to our product developing team.”
Kosonen came into contact with the products through his team Växjö Vipers and their cooperation with Salming. He has tested everything from Slide, the first goalie shoe that was launched a few years ago, to the brand new Carbon X helmet.
Kosonen said: “I have seen how tightly Salming works with it’s ambassadors and I look forward to representing the brand and to be a part of the product developing process.The focus Salming has on the goalie equipment feels genuine and exiting and I like the new Carbon X helmet very much.”
