Participating players of boys U 17 European Tournament and Nordic Championships and other team members as well as spectators here in Varkaus and everybody following the games.
The city of Varkaus and WP 35 are in close co-operation providing sports opportunities for youths and national level bandy games for spectators in legendary Kämäri-area. And now the city and the club are organizing together these two tournaments.
Varkaus has since the thirties been a town known around Finland as the ‘bandy-town’ and it’s not unusual that junior players of this decade are third generation of the family playing bandy in the same club.
Last golden period of bandy in Varkaus was the first half of the 90’s when WP 35 took 4 consecutive national championships. Since then there has been a change of generation and now there are talented young players looking for new success. I hope these Tournaments provide inspiration for those players.
On behalf of my own and Varkaus city I welcome everybody to Varkaus and wish you all successful games.
