Number of Finnish football players in top-level leagues abroad 2015-2020, by gender

This statistic displays the number of Finnish football players in top-level leagues abroad from 2015 to 2018, with a forecast up to 2020, by gender. As of 2018, there were 46 male footballers and 24 female footballers playing in top-tier divisions outside of Finland. For 2020, the numbers are expected to decrease in the male group and increase in the female group. Football is a beloved hobby sport in Finland, but, despite the fairly high number of registered players, falls behind ice hockey in popularity as professional spectator sport.
