There is a real convenient and cheap place to stay at the Finnish Olympic 
Stadium, which is right beside the finals site in Downtown Helsinki. It is a 
very much used as a residence for the international competitors at the other 
sports events held in Finland. They have rooms for two people, four people 
and group rooms for 5-9 people. Prices are:

85 marks = 15 $ a night for person in the room for two
75 marks = 13 $ a night for person in the room for four
60 marks = 11 $ a night for person in the room for 5-9 people 

You pay extra 3 $ to have clean sheets for all the time you are there, it is 
worth it, I don't think you should try to bring your own. BTW, for some 
reason they don't allow sleeping bags. They have a breakfast buffet for 5 $. 

Please contact us right away if you need a place to stay. The reservations 
have to be made on the 23rd the latest!!!


Let us know how you are travelling, we will pick you up from the Train 
station, Busterminal, Airport etc. The public transpotation is real 
convienient in Helsinki, and it is very easy, simple and cheap to use.

Please, contact us as soon as possible if you are planning on coming, so we 
can make the required arrangements.

We wish everybody welcome to have a great weekend of footbag in Helsinki,

Justin Sexton,
Tournament director
