15 Wild Photos Of Finland's Swamp Soccer World Championships
In a recent New York Times article by Andrew Keh, the writer delved into the strange but fascinating world of Finnish sports. One famous event Keh chronicled is the Swamp Soccer World Championships, a 20-year-old competition that now draws more than 2,000 people annually.
The event takes place in Hyrynsalmi, a municipality in the northeast of Finland that features vast swamplands. The six-on-six tournament features few goals, a lot of alcohol consumption and some truly stunning imagery.
