Finland U19 Women’s National Lacrosse Team #RoadToEdinburgh

Finland U19 Women’s National Lacrosse Team is getting ready for the Lacrosse World Championship 2015. Championship takes place July 23rd trough August 1st at Edinburgh, Scotland. You can support team Finland fundraising here: Lacrosse is a less well-known sport in Finland and the girls and their families have to pay their trip mostly by themselves. 5000 euros would be a huge help for them. Thank you for your support! #RoadToEdinburgh


By following our Facebook Page you will get an insider’s look at the development of our team which will compete in the 2015 European Women’s Lacrosse Championships. The Championships will be in Nymburk of the Czech Republic from August 6th to 15th, 2015.

Women’s lacrosse officially began in Finland in 2002. Finland’s National Women’s Team attended the Women’s World Cup Championship for the first time in the summer of 2007 in Lahti, Finland.
