The international Finlandia Trophy Espoo competition weekend turned into a four-day one. The figure skating event will start according to the new schedule as early as Thursday, October 7th, 2021 and will continue over the weekend, ending on October 10th, 2021. The event will be held at Espoo Metro Arena.
Finnish Figure Skating Association received this year a larger number of pre-registrations than usual. The federation wanted to give more athletes a chance to start their international competition season and decided to increase the event by day.
– The Challenger competition just before the Finlandia Trophy was canceled in Slovakia. We believe this has contributed to the interest in our event. We came up with a solution in the interests of athletes. We wanted to give as many skaters as possible the opportunity to compete on the eve of the Olympic season, Outi Wuorenheimo, Secretary General of Finlandia Trophy Espoo, explained.
