- The renewed Olympic Stadium offers great facilities to the Finnish Athletics Federation as an event organiser and especially to the running events’ participants. We’d like to warmly welcome the participants at the Olympic Stadium, says Ari Kuokkanen, Director for the Olympic Stadium.

In addition, the negotiations for the 2022 Finland-Sweden Athletics International to be organised at the Olympic Stadium have started. The common goal is to bring this renewed event to the Olympic Stadium in 2022, which marks the 70-year Anniversary for the Helsinki Olympics.
