INDOOR BANDY SOON IN FINLAND!
The Federation of International Bandy is now planning for a major premiere for indoor bandy in Finland. The project with an indoor arena in Lappeenranta is rolling on and when the arena is ready, an international inauguration is planned with next year’s 4-nation tournament with participation from Russia, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
The plan is for the tournament to be played in Lappeenranta January 20-22, 2023. It is of course gratifying for Finnish bandy in particular but also for the entire international bandy family.
If bandy can then get a similar boost in Finland as in Sweden and Russia in terms of the opportunities to play bandy indoors, it will also affect the strength and quality of Finnish bandy with the greatest certainty. This has happened in both Sweden and Russia.
