Welcome to watch and play!


Tampere United will host the Nocturnal Football event on Thursday 10.8. from 8:30 pm to midnight at the Pyynikki sports field. Gather a team of six and come and play football in the atmospheric evening lights of the Pyynikki sports field! 

Game spot

A separate game spot has also been built at Pyyniki for the event. There are e.g. Playstation games and table football at the spot. The spot gives you access to a participatory programme where visitors get to enjoy a variety of games and challenges. You can challenge friends, other participants or even family members to the games. At the same time, you get a glimpse of the world of e-sports. The game spot is open to all ages and there will be activities for everyone from children to adults!

Dining and drinking

At both events, there will be Tapola grilled sausages for carnivores and Vegem vegetable sausages for everyone at the grill place. Refreshments, coffee, and sweets are also available. There are products for fans/supporters for sale at the same location.

In addition to the evening lights, the atmosphere in Pyyniki is created by the stadium's music.


Tournament and registration

Night football is played by teams of one goalkeeper and five field players, with no substitutes. The tournament is played in two groups of four teams. This is followed by the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final. The matches will last 10 minutes and will be played on small pitches with small goals. 

In addition to tournament-style games, there's more casual fun for those who want to kick the ball around even more casually. You can also take part as an individual player. If necessary, teams participating in the tournament can also be supplemented by individual players coming to the event.

Registration for Night Football will open later, a more detailed schedule will be updated here. The first eight teams to sign up will be eligible. The entry fee for the tournament is €20 per team and it will be paid at the time of registration.
