The Finnish Sports Association of Persons with Disabilities, hosts of the 2017 IBSA Goalball European Championships in September, has launched the first video in a series of films.

The 'Road to Pajulahti' video series follows the Finnish goalball team on their way to the European Championships later this year.

The 2017 IBSA Goalball European Championships will be played in the Pajulahti Sports Institute, Finland, on 18th-22nd September. The organizing body of the event, the Finnish Sports Association for Persons with Disabilities, is publishing a series of 'Road to Pajulahti' videos to present goalball as a sport and to follow the Finnish male and female national teams' path towards the European Championships.

There are English subtitles in the videos.

In the first video Finnish goalball player Erkki Miinala showcases the action-packed world of goalball. Paralympic gold medallist Miinala will be the main character in the six part video series, and through him the audience gets to have a look on everyday life of an athlete with a visual impairment.

A song playing in the background of the first video is “In the Night” performed by Free Heart, a metal band from Kemi, Finland, with Erkki Miinala in the drums.

There will be six parts in the “Road to Pajulahti” video series. Five of them will be published prior to the European Championships in September and one after the Games to sum it up.
