[Podcast] Finnish Football Show: Helmarit Win the Cyprus Cup, Liigacup Update, Transfer News, Finns Overseas, Huuhkajat “Season Ticket” Sales

It’s the Mark W & Keke Show again (sorry!) but we wanted to keep you informed as we plough through the closed season. Firstly, Keke reviews the recent performances of the women’s national team, the Helmarit, in winning the Cyprus Cup competition against Croatia, Romania and Hungary.

Next, Mark looks at the recent Liigacup results as the group stage nears its conclusion ahead of the semi-final stage. They also look at some of the more notable transfers involving Finnish clubs and players in the past few weeks, impressive sales of Huuhkajat ‘season tickets’ for the home Euro 2024 qualifiers, and finish up by speculating “just how good is Mark H’s new sauna?”

Join Mark W (@explorefinland),  Mark H (@FCSuomi),  Keke (@kekemyllari), Rich (@EscapeToSuomi) and Ally (@Mano99) for regular episodes, where 5 old blokes sit and talk about football in Finland. In English.

The show is recorded on Zoom & published on PodBean. Follow the Finnish Football Show on PodBean for announcements of future episodes.
