Finland Volleyball League
The Finland Volleyball League is the highest volleyball league in Finland. The very best of Finland’s volleyball stars battle it out in the men’s and women’s national championships.
There are ten teams each in the men’s and women’s leagues, so there is no shortage of action and nail-biting moments. Matches take place in 18 locations around the country, spanning east to west and north to south.
Each of these 20 teams is fighting to be crowned Finnish champions. Winning the championships gives a team the right to represent Finnish volleyball in the next season against some of the toughest teams from across Europe in the CEV Champions League.
You can find out more about the Finland Volleyball League on its website (in Finnish).
The men’s league match schedule is available here (in Finnish).
