Snow is melting down in southern and southwestern Finland. It means that pesäpallo season is soon here and so is Pesäpallo World Cup Tournament as well. It’s so cool to see all of you in Turku 20.-24.7.
Remember to sign up your team at www.pesis.fi/world-cup-2017/sign-up. So far we have received registrations from Australia, Estonia, Finland (even several teams), India, Switzerland and the USA. At least teams from Germany and Sweden are also making themselves ready for the World Cup so we’re waiting for the final confirmations from remaining countries. The more the merrier! Anyone is welcome to join us as a single player or with the whole team.
Super Pass is needed from every player attending the tournament. You’ll enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences like authentic Finnish Pub night, smoke sauna, a taste of beautiful Turku Archipelago and glorious closing ceremony in the world famous full rigged ship called Suomen Joutsen (literally ‘Finnish Swan’). The price of the Super Pass including all these events, player’s bag and tournament arrangements is only 100 €. Find out more at www.pesis.fi/world-cup-2017/super-pass.
The international Tall Ships Races 2017 event will take place in Turku at the same time as Pesäpallo World Cup tournament. So remember to book your accommodation in advance! Check out official tournament hotels at www.pesis.fi/world-cup-2017/accommodation.
