For the first time in over 15 years, Finland is sending women's national team to represent the country overseas. I will be flying out with the national team next week to Slovakia for EuroHockey Indoor Championship III - tournament and as it will be my first actual tournament trip outside of Finland (in other words more than couple of hours away from where I live), I'm a little unsure of what would be good to bring with to a 4 day tournament.

Apart from your kit, is there something you usually take with or that is a must have to take with to a longer tournament far away from home (overseas or other side of the country)?

So exciting!! I hope you have a great trip!

I always take my travel clothes line or a bit of rope as you may not have somewhere to hang your gear so the rope can make a good hanging line for you. 😜

Thank you so much for the tip! It was a lifesaver during the tournament and the travel clothes line I brought with was in constant use 😊 

We may have been beaten in every match by a landslide but the experience was unforgettable and amazing for everyone in our team. We never stopped smiling and enjoyed every minute of the tournament.

It was also a major step forward for women's hockey in Finland 🇫🇮.
