You can watch highlights from all Veikkausliiga games on the internet. Iltalehti’s NettiTV is the place to look, usually a few hours after the games (follow ‘muut’ then ‘veikkausliiga’).

Occasionally YLE offers games via their website, I will try to link to them as and when they appear. If you live in Finland, you can see one game a week via the free-to-air sports channel Urheilukanava, usually on Monday or Sunday. Towards the end of the season this switches to YLE1 or YLE2, as they get more interested and start to mess with the kick-off times.

If you live here and want to see Finns playing abroad, there are several options. Canal+ is the home of Premiership football, along with games played at the bigger Serie A clubs and Allsvenskan. Viasat has Danish football, Champions League, Second division English footbal and a fair bit more. Pretty much everything else (La Liga, Bundesliga, lesser lights in Italy) is shown on Urheilukanava.

One excellent programme that may still be available to some in Finland is the TV5 round-up on the French league. It goes out on a Sunday evening, and is in French with no subtitles, but if you did it at school or have watched any football highlights programme before, you’ll get the jist.

    we found your contact in internet.
    San Martino is a ladies football club founded in 1988. We play in the third national division.
    Net summer (August 2009) we would like to make one week of technical training (before the new season) in Finland. We are going to come in about 50-60 persons (girls and followers), so we are looking for an economic solution. We started our experience of international training last year, we stayed in Norway followed by the club FBK Voss. The stay was really nice, we liked it very much, so we decided to continue it also this year, changing only the state.
    If you are also interested to exchange experience with our club, we wait for your kind feedback (or, eventually, you can give us a contact which can be suitable for organization of our stay).
    Thanks in advance!

    Best regards.

    Mr. Severino Provolo, President of San Martino
