- Due to the corona, the historic debut of the owls at the European Championships has had to wait a long time, and yesterday a large number of Finns gathered together for a long-needed sports experience. However, the match got an unfortunate turnaround that no one could have foreseen. The event was a shock to everyone, including us. The whole team made the broadcast in a very difficult situation, and told about the events as required by the seriousness of the situation, Yle Sports Manager Joose Palonen said in Yle's case.
