Around 10,000 tickets have already been sold for the Swedish-Finnish track and field-competition Finnkampen. Compared to previous years, these are high numbers that show an increased interest in track and field.

On September 2-3, it is time for the classic track and field-competition Finnkampen in Stockholm in Sweden. Almost 10,000 tickets have already been sold, which is a high figure compared to previous years if the corona restrictions are taken into account.

Magnus Malmsborg, event manager of the Swedish Track and Field Federation, says that if you want to secure your seats, you should not wait long to buy tickets.

We have sold twice as many tickets as at the same time in the last few years that the Finnkampen has been held in Sweden. So far, tickets are still available in most sections, he says in a press release.

In this year’s competition in the theoretical Finnkampen, which is held every year based on the statistics of each nation’s annual best list, there will probably be both Swedish and Finnish victory. The Swedish men are expected to win against the Finns, but the Swedish women are expected to lose against the Finns.

This year the aim is to sell 20,000 tickets, says Malmsborg.

It’s a high goal, but it looks really good so far, he says.

In Finland, it is called the Swedish Championships.
