Like with many other things, Finland does not miss out on sports. Their most popular sports are ice-hockey and Formula One, whereas sports to actually practice come in the form of football, Nordic walking, running and skiing. Where football is concerned, the Premier League has seen a handful of Finnish players parading their jerseys, however, none of them have been as successful as it is not the most popular sport in the country. Being a Nordic country, snow or ice sports are the norm. They, however, have their own national sport, called pesäpallo, which is a form of Finnish baseball.
The national sport has a presence in many countries, including Germany, Sweden, Australia and Canada. It has gained such popularity that every three years, since 1992, there is an International World Cup and a Finland-only Championship. However, the United Kingdom seems to pay no interest in the sport. Ice-hockey is a completely different story.
