ForzaHJK and supporters of the londoner Dulwich Hamlet footballteam will arrange a truly friendshipmatch in Sunday 27th July.

Timetable will be like this:

- on the sundaymorning the londoners arrive to Helsinki from Tallinn, Estonia(some arrive on saturday, too)
- the match will be played on lunch time somewhere in Helsinki downtown area
- after match there will  be our own lunchtime and pre-game beers before the league match HJK - IFK Mariehamn
- then we go together see the match in Finnair Stadium, home ground of HJK Helsinki
- and later some after-game beers in ForzaHJK's supporters pub, Pub Fidel.
- late in the evening londoners return back to Tallin

Ok. We have managed to get marvellous ground for the match, FIM-ground. It is the rehearsal ground of the HJK organization, surfaced with artificial turf. Thanks to HJK  :) And it is located near Finnair Stadium and was originally nicknamed 'Sahara' , when it was covered with sand. And here is the schedule for the day.

the Rabblers arrive from Tallinn to Helsinki in the morning
11.30 AM. Warming up at FIM-ground
12.00 AM  Match starts at FIM-ground. maybe 2 x 20 min, or so. depends on weather ..
1.00 PM   Refreshing hour at Swimming Stadium near by. Opendoor pools(warm vater), finnish sauna, food and beer :)
               Normally 1,5 hours is enough there, real oasis that stadium.
3.00 PM  Watching amateur Championship Games at Finnair Stadium,  Main Stand
4.30 PM  Pre-game beers at our Pub Fidel, Kivelänkatu 2
6.30 PM  Finnish League match HJK - IFK Mariehamn at our ForzaHJK section in eastern, Silver Stand. 
8.30 PM  After-game beers at Pub Fidel. One of HJK:s player gives his shirt to winner of the trivia game,
later in the evening the Rabblers  return to Tallinn by boat, maybe  ;)

So arrangements for the game are on the way. And actually we have only two deadlines, 12 AM and
6.30 PM, otherwise the schedule is most flexible.

Welcome to Helsinki, Rabblers  :beer:

Our english friends are goming to Helsinki with Viking XPRS on Sunday 10:30Am to Viking Terminal. That is in Katajanokka terminal in Southern Harbour. Trams 4 and 4X come to center from Katajanokka. First they turn into Aleksanterinkatu(shopping street in Helsinki). Then to Helsinki Main Street, Mannerheimintie. It goes long way along Mannerheimintie, and when you reach the Helsinki Stadium area, there are two large hotels on the left side, and the later is Crowne Plaza where our Pub Fidel resides, too.
 
And, finally,then on the right side, The Opera House. It's wise to climb of there, Opera. All the footboll grounds are near Urheilukatu(Sportstreet), which goes parallel to Mannerheimintie on the right side. When you see the huge Olympic Stadion Tower, you are on right way. But surely somebody of us will be waiting for your at Viking Terminal and guide you  :ylos:

Later in the evening our quests return to Tallinn, probably with Tallink Star from West Harbour.
Here is picture from Ports of Helsinki.

Three lads are coming already on Saturday to Helsinki. And for you there is BeerFestival held near the main railwaystation, lucky you  :tuoppi: And if you plan to see that II Division FC Kontu - Warkaus Jk match, starts at 3.00PM in Kontula. You can go to Kontula by SubWay(metro in finnish) from the main railway station. Take the line to Mellunmäki from Rautatientori(Central railwaystation) to Kontula. The ground, Rintinpolku, is very near Kontula Center.

http://aikataulut.ytv.fi/linjat/en/hMetro_Mellunmaki.html

But we try get someone to guide you to Kontula, at 2.00PM in Chech restaurant VLTAVA would good meeting place before going to Kontula. HJK is playing against Warkaus JK on next Finnish Cup Round.

And finally, Pub Fidel opens at 3PM on Sunday. It is specially open for us and here is website:

Thank's for our english friends  :beer: We had a wonderful time together.  :)
The friendship match ended 1-1, thought it was shorter playtime than we had planned. And surely it was fun to put our english frinds to finnish sauna in Swimming Stadium.

And later in evening we together supported HJK to win over Mariehamn IFK, 4-0.

Our english friends, we'll see again, surely  :ylos: :forza:

Yes, thanks to everyone for a great day - definitely one in top 3 of at least my summer!

  • Lots of nice and friendly people
  • An enjoyable game at noon, even though my knee would let me personally only play for two or three minutes at the end, touching the ball just once. Well, at least that allowed me to take more photos. ;). It would have been nice to have a slightly longer match, but this was quite ok, too. I was glad to see that the sides were so equal - before the game I was quite certain we would be slaughtered...
  • The weather really couldn't have been much better, which made the visit to the Olympic outdoor swimming stadium an even more excellent idea!
  • More relaxation and nice chats with nice people at Pub Fidel. :beer:
  • The rare opportunity to see HJK's trophy room at the stadium - and hearing that the plaque you presented to us (shame on us, we didn't have anything equal to give you back...) will be placed in one of the cabinets, among many other memorable trophys from the past century! Now that HJK have the first season for years without international games, Forza HJK were given, even on this level, the honor of flying the blue and white colours internationally instead.
  • Our friends gave Forza a real boost in supporting the real blue & whites in the league game. It was great to see so many people in the fan section this time! And what a game it was - hat tricks are rare goodies! Just about the only disappointing thing was that instead of the literally hundreds of away fans from the last two years, there were only ten quiet ones. This has to be due to the fact that the previous games were played earlier in the day: Mariehamn is located on the Åland islands between Finland and Sweden, and they don't have as many ferries going there as they do to Tallinn. The game just was too late to catch the last ferry of the day.

It was amazing to hear how the Rabblers travel abroad each year for friendlies like this. What a great way to make friends abroad! We'll have to do this again - maybe some day in London as well! We must see to it that once HJK have won the double this year, we'll be playing against an English team in next year's CL qualification games - or well, the group phase 8).

Once more, thanks to all for the memorable day! And all the best for the Rabblers and Dulwich Hamlet FC as well! May they proceed to Premier League soon so that one day we'll meet in the Champions League!

Oh, and a web album of my photos from Sunday will appear here within a few days, so keep an eye on this forum!

Oh yes - and even the announcer at the stadium wished our guests welcome in English - although a while too early: you were all still having your pints and probably missed that.

Later, during the game, he also informed the crowds about our game result, this time only in Finnish, though.

The Finnish League website also noted our match.

Something like this in English:

On Sunday, Forza HJK played an international friendly game against The Rabblers, the supporters of the London team Dulwich Hamlet FC.

Two days earlier in Tallinn, The Rabblers had been defeated 10-6 by the supporters of the Estonian national team.

The game in Helsinki had considerably fewer goals, ending 1-1 after a close fight.

At 15 minutes, the Londoners scored 1-0, following a small mistake by the Forza defence. Only a while later, referee Antti Willem Kyro blew his whistle to give Rabblers a penalty after their striker had been struck down in the penalty area. The pressure was too much for the Englishman, and the ball flew one meter too high.

After this, Forza got a better grip of the game, and Sami Seppänen shot a well-deserved equalizer via the pole, from a fine pass from Toni Ravolainen.

Having returned from the short interval at 1-1, neither team scored further goals, so the final result was fairly pleasing for both teams.

Thanks to Markku. Nice that some else writes on this topic than me  :beer:

And nice report of the match. One thing to add, its was David O'Shaughnessy who scored that visitors goal.
