The Story of Finnish Women’s Football Team
The Finnish women’s national football team played its first match in 1973. In the beginning only a couple of international matches took place in a year, mostly against Sweden or Denmark. After the modest start football has become the most popular team sport among women and girls in Finland.
The exhibition of the Sports Museum of Finland featured some of the most interesting and important moments in the history of the Finnish women’s football team. The exhibition was created in co-operation with the Finnish Football Association and the UEFA Women’s Euro 2009 organisation.
