Category: Goalball

The third part of the Road to Pajulahti video series focuses on the Finnish national goalball league
The IBSA Goalball European Championships 2017 will be played in the Pajulahti Sports Institute, Finland, on 18-22 September.

The local organizing body of the event, the Finnish Sports Association of Persons with Disabilities, is publishing a six-part 'Road to Pajulahti' video series to present goalball as a sport and to follow the home team’s preparations towards the European Championships. The videos are subtitled in English.

The third part of the video series focuses on the Finnish national goalball league. The main character of the video series, Finnish national team player Erkki Miinala, whose team Old Power won the Finnish championship in May, talks about the importance of having an own national league in Finland. Miinala also speaks about his former national team partner, a long-time Finnish captain Petri Posio, who is now part of the Finnish national team’s coaching staff.

Five of the 'Road to Pajulahti' videos will be published prior to the European Championships in September and one will be published after the Games. The previous parts can be watched here.
