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.
Kotka has one of the best basketball teams
in Finland. During the season, it can be great
opportunity to socialized with the locals.
