Last weekend the Finnish Way of Life Club went to Hakametsä ice hockey hall to see a thrilling game. The two main league teams of Tampere (Tappara and Ilves) kept us all on the edge of our seats!
This event was the most popular club event so far among the exchange students, since a total of 30 students came to root their favorite team on! For some of the students this ice hockey match was the first to see live (ever) and not on TV, so they were very excited and got lost in the heat of the game. Almost all of the students cheered Tappara (for some reason) and eventually they won 2-0. Everyone was very satisfied after the game about the result, the great atmosphere in the ice hockey hall and of course about the opportunity to see real Finnish ice hockey!
