Ultimate Raffle for Eagles Roadtrip Tickets

The Philadelphia Eagles play the New York Giants on Sunday, December 11 at 1:00 p.m. and we are sending two fans!

Want a ticket? Only 200 will be sold! Venmo $25 to @hawks-finland and write “GO BIRDS” in the memo.

A group of Eagles fans are taking over the South Endzone of MetLife Stadium for the game – and you will have great seats in the 300 Level.

Our tour group hosts – Philly Sports Trips – is undefeated in New York and plans on continuing the streak. The journey up to MetLife stadium only takes a few hours.  Cav’s will be setup with his famous menu, drinks, and DJ Nick will be spinning the tunes.  It is completely worth the quick trip up the turnpike to watch our Eagles dominate and our fans take over the stadium.

The trip up to New York with PST is a must for all Eagles fans who bleed green.  Their trip for the Jets in 2021 was another complete stadium takeover by our fans and the win helped us in our playoff push!  The group is prepared to bring hundreds of Eagles fans on a fleet of buses to secure this victory.  Do we need to mention the filet-mignon sandwiches, craft beer, or DJ?  Everyone will also receive one of those highly coveted Philly Sports Trips’ 2022 T-shirts.

Cav’s Famous Tailgate menu includes unlimited:

  • Caesar Salad
  • Clams, Mussels, Shrimp in white wine sauce
  • Penne Pasta in a Cream Blush Sauce
  • Filet Mignon Sandwiches
  • Boneless Chicken Sandwiches
  • Grilled Sausage w/peppers Sandwiches
  • Hot Dogs
  • Burgers

Don’t miss your chance to win! Only 200 will be sold! Venmo $25 to @hawks-finland and write “GO BIRDS” in the memo.

Mandatory Parent Meeting Sept 8 or 12

In a few short months, your players – and some of our families – will be headed to Helsinki, Finland. Between now and then, there is a lot of planning to do!

We need all Exchange parents to attend one of our mandatory Parent Meetings. The meetings will be identical and will cover payments, schedules, planning and (of course) fundraising! It is mandatory that one parent per player attend one of these meetings.

  • Thursday, September 8 at 7:30 p.m.
  • Monday, September 12 at 7:30 p.m.

Both meetings will be held upstairs at the Skatium.

We won’t have answers to all the questions we can ask – but we will share all that we have sorted out and discuss the rest.

Please note: you only need to attend one of the two sessions. 

We brought the largest group ever associated with the Finland Exchange to the U.S. in March / April.  The tournament and overall trip were a huge success.  We expect nothing less for our trip to Finland in 2023!  Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
