You’ve got to hand it to the Finns, they take their festive connections very seriously. Did you know, for example, that Rovaniemi has a football team called FC Santa Claus (known as Santa for short)?
Formed in 1993, the team plays its home matches at Saarenkylän tekonurmi or Susivoudin kenttä in Rovaniemi. Its badge, as you might expect, features a certain gentleman with a long white beard and, as for the colour of the football strip, I guess that goes without saying.
You can travel to Rovaniemi with The Mighty Fine Company and see the football ground and man in red for yourself!
