“Finnish football team “Huuhkajat” fulfilled a dream of generations by fighting their way to the European Football Championships. Due to the pandemic, Euro2020 games were postponed to summer 2021 and Finland will play the first match in June. “Pohjoiskaarre” is the official supporter audience of Huuhkajat and an integral part of the Finnish football fan scene. This piece is made to honor the growing Finnish football culture and to support Finland’s support in Euro 2020 games.”
