In 2010 and 2011 Australian Finska Championships were held at Eurofest in Sydney. 32 teams of two battled it out to be crowned Australian Finska Champions. Although the event has not been held for a number of years now, both events were a roaring success and there are plans to relaunch the tournament in 2019, bigger and better than ever!
The Melbourne Backyard Finska Championships
In 2018, Finska tragics from all over Victoria descended on Melbourne to participate in the inaugural Backyard Finska Championships. As a community lead event, the number of places had to be limited to 80 given local council restrictions on public liability. More than 1000 people expressed interest in the event on facebook.
