American Football in Finland


The story of the American Football in Finland podcast (AFF) is one rooted in passion, perseverance, and a love for the game. It all began in 2017 when Perfect Pervis, an avid American football fan living in Finland, had an idea. He saw an opportunity to create a platform where football enthusiasts in Finland could come together to discuss and celebrate the sport they loved. With the rising popularity of podcasts and the growing American football scene in Finland, Pervis felt compelled to carve out a space where fans could engage with the game on a deeper level.

Initially flying solo with an influx of guest co-hosts, Pervis launched the AFF podcast, determined to provide insightful commentary, analysis, and interviews related to the Finnish football scene. Despite facing challenges in the early days, such as building an audience and securing guests, Pervis remained committed to his vision.

As the podcast gained traction and recognition within the Finnish football community, Pervis realized that having a consistent co-host could enhance the show's dynamic and broaden its appeal. Enter Coach Marquette Floyd, a seasoned football coach with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Floyd's expertise and passion for the game complemented Pervis's enthusiasm, and the duo quickly formed a formidable partnership.

With Coach Q on board, AFF experienced a surge in popularity. The podcast became a go-to destination for football fans seeking in-depth analysis, player interviews, and game predictions specific to the Maple League, Finland's premier American football league. But the AFF team wasn't content with resting on their laurels. In 2021, they welcomed Chris Green, a longtime listener and passionate football aficionado, to the podcast. Green's unique perspective and insights injected new energy into the show, further enriching the discussions and debates.


Together, Perfect, Coach Q, and Chris have become known as the AFF crew, a trio of dedicated football enthusiasts committed to delivering high-quality content to their audience week after week during the Finnish football season. Whether they are dissecting player performances, analyzing team strategies, or engaging in friendly banter and debates, the AFF crew never fails to entertain and inform their listeners.

As each new football season brought its own set of challenges and triumphs, one thing remains constant—the unwavering presence of the American Football in Finland podcast. Through wins and losses, roster changes, and coaching shake-ups, the AFF crew continues to provide fans with the insight, commentary, and camaraderie they crave.

Today, the American Football in Finland podcast stands as a testament to the power of passion and dedication. What began as a simple idea has blossomed into a beloved institution within the Finnish football community—a place where fans can come together to celebrate their shared love for the game. And as long as there's football to be played in Finland, you can bet that the AFF crew will be there, ready to share their thoughts, opinions, and enthusiasm with fans old and new alike.
