When I first heard of FC Santa Claus, I said this is a joke right? But after learning more about the team that plays on the tundra that is Lapland where there is 21 hours of darkness and sub zero temps, and playing in a stadium that holds 4,000, I thought this is very cool.
Sure the weather and pitch conditions aren't ideal for playing football but it's the joyous spirit for which they play that makes this team fun to talk about.
The crew at Copa90.com recently shot a 10 minute documentary on the club. If you've never heard of them before, see for yourself and enjoy.
