[Podcast] An Introduction To The World Of Finnish Football

With Finland qualifying for Euro 2020, there has, naturally, been a surge in interest in our Huuhkajat. The Finnish Football Show team has been invited to speak and write on a variety of outlets, around the world, and this made us think; no one really knows much about Finnish football.

We decided it might be a good idea to go back to basics for this episode, by creating a Finnish football 1.0 crib sheet. One place to get all the useful info as we head into the Euros. We have, after all, been at this for several years now. We know stuff.
