On Thursday 3 January, the (revamped) Champions Cup will take place with the two semifinals while the finals will be played on Friday the 4th.


For three years in a row, Classic has been Finland’s best club and it doesn’t look like the dominance will end soon. The team is packed with top class players as Eemeli Salin, Krister Savonen and Jussi Piha, and recent additions Juha Kivilehto and Nico Salo made the team even stronger. Not surprisingly, Classic is leading the Finnish charts also this year with not a single match lost in regular time.
