The 2008 season is historical for women's football in Finland. For the first time ever, women will play their own full-contact league in addition to the more traditional semi-contact and flag football championships. The idea is for women to play their premier league all in full gear by 2009. It is still possible for an individual to only engage in semi-contact and flag activities; there is no obligation to play full contact.
Contrary to some earlier information, the Lady Trojans are not taking a sabbatical this season. There are not enough players at the moment who can make the commitment of playing all three leagues; however, we will see our Ladies on the 5 vs 5 flag football field. Anyone who is interested in any form of women's football is urged to contact tro dot naiset at netti dot fi as soon as possible for further information. If you know you will want to play flag football this season, do not hesitate to sign up with Leeni Matikka (leeni dot matikka at jippii dot fi) right away. New beginners are equally welcome, as are experienced players.
