Football madness in Kotka
FC KooTeePee (formely KTP est. 1927 and Kotkan Tp est. 1998), a Finnish elite league football team, plays its home matches in the Arto Tolsa areena. The stadium was built in 1952 and renamed after a Kotka football legend in 2000. The capasity of this stadium is around 4600. The homecrowd is said to be one of the best crowds in Finland. I`ve been twice in Arto Tolsa areena and I must disagree. The crowd doesn`t really support their own team. Normally they sit silently or abuse the away team players.
