HSL and Helsinki Cup recommend: use public transport to get to the football field

All Helsinki Cup match venues are easily accessible with public transport, which means you can avoid traffic jams and parking problems.

Helsinki Cup, one the biggest junior football tournaments in Europe, takes place in Helsinki from 7 through 12 July for the 39th time. Some 1,060 junior football teams from 10 countries are expected to the tournament. This means about 20,000 footballers and their support teams. The participating countries include, for example, Iceland, Mexico, Tanzania, Brazil, France, Lebanon, India, Italy, Sweden, Estonia, Russia and Austria. The match venues are located around Helsinki but all of them are accessible by public transport.  Use the Journey Planner to find the best routes. In order to encourage the use of public transport during the tournament, HSL has granted free tickets for the organizers of the Helsinki Cup and some of the players.

If you are coming to the tournament and plan to make several journeys during one day or several days, a day ticket is the best option for you. You can choose a ticket for 1 – 7 days. The tickets are available from HSL’s ticket machines and R-kiosks in the metropolitan area, for example. There are Helsinki internal tickets and regional tickets valid in the entire Helsinki metropolitan area. The ticket is valid on all public transport.
