Does anybody know how the World Cup works in countries like Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. These cold-climate countries play there matches from about April till August, during the World Cup (and European Championship.)

I was just wondering as In 4 years time I hope to be leading Finland in the World Cup and also a Finnish team. I wasn't sure if the Finnish Veikkausliiga would still have fixtures during this time and wondered if anybody knew.

Thanks.

PS. Not sure if this is the right forum? Couldn't find a general help forum, so...

If you play as a manager of team in Veikkausliiga and also Finland NT manager then I'd guess your games that go on during WC will be transferred to later date.

Just a guess. And GL getting Finland to any tournament. Not going to happen in RL ever.

That's what I was thinking and hoping. I have tried looking on the internet but I cant find anything.

Also, that's the challenge. With long enough I hope to get them in, but obviously it's very hard. Anyway, I'm sure they could get into the EUROS fairly easily if I manage them right. :)

There are very few matches in the summer, if I recall correctly I've usually had only one or two matches in June to start of July.

Finland also won the EURO 2024 in my save :wub:

Do you mean you played as a Russian or Scandinavian Club and they do play during the World Cup, etc, but just not much?

Great, thanks!
