The Finnish floorball season 2020-2021 will begin in Mikkeli on 12th of September. That is when the best teams of the previous season will play each other in Super Cup. Super Cup is an event where F-Liiga title holders are challenged by Finnish Cup champions.
The new Super Cup in September will give Finnish floorball and the new F-Liiga a fresh start. In the men’s Super Cup, Classic will face Nokian KrP and in the women’s Super Cup SB-Pro and PSS will meet. Classic and SB-Pro are Finnish champions from 2019 and Nokian KrP and PSS made it to last season’s Finnish Cup final where they lost against Classic and SB-Pro.
Alongside Super Cup the event will host F-Liiga kick-off 2020-2021 for media with star players from all 30 F-Liiga teams attending. Naturally, Super Cup is going to be an annual event and a way to start the new season.
– We wanted to take Super Cup to a town where the is no local F-Liiga team yet. Mikkeli is a town rich with sports tradition and Saimaa Stadium is an excellent arena for elite floorball. Last season, Classic played their regular season match there and I had the chance to witness how smoothly everything went, says the F-Liiga CEO Kimmo Nurminen.
