Sports in Finland

Hello everyone,

The Olympic Games are now just a few days away and we would like to talk about sports.

What sports are the most popular and/or unusual in Finland?

Are sports facilities easily accessible there? Where and how can one find sports clubs in the region?

Are there sports events regularly held in the country?

And you? What is your favourite sport? Which one(s) do you practice in Finland?

Thank you in advance,


I play Rugby here with HRC (Helsinki Rugby Club). There is both a Mens and Womens team and open to all! We run beginners courses throughout the year and will be doing one around the Olympics! As we expect the 7's Rugby will catch peoples eye.
