Escape To Suomi was established in June 2012 as a family affair. Me (Rich Nelson) needed something to do when visiting Finland with my Finnish wife (Hanne, aka Mrs ETS), so what better activity than to follow the local football? The site has moved away from match summaries to interviews and news.

There are a number of ways to contact me.

Follow us on Twitter for day-to-day news and live match updates - Escape To Suomi Twitter

Like us on Facebook to see articles as soon as they are published - Escape To Suomi Facebook

Keep up with photos of Finnish football memorabilia, other football pics, and my dog - Escape To Suomi Instagram

Ask me some questions, preferably about Finnish football, or other things if you fancy - Escape To Suomi

If you have any suggestions, requests, feedback, or if you fancy writing something for the site, email me on rich (AT) escapetosuomi (DOT) com.
