Ljusdal, Sweden, 27-31 October

Winner was the Swedish club Hammarby IF, after defeating Ljusdals BK from Sweden 7-0 in the final game.

Hammarby impressed also in the play offs. They beat Västerås SK 5-1 in the quarterfinal and Falun 4-2 in the semifinal. Ljusdal won the quarter final 5-1 against Finnish Narukerä and the semi final 2-1 against Russian Yenisei. 

And the final game was a one-team-show as Hammarby IF made a 7-0 victory!
