    JYP becomes first Finnish Liiga-club to join NHL esports

    NHLGamers,

    JYP Jyvaskyla is a traditional hockey club hailing from Central Finland and with their announcement today, the club is becoming the first Finnish Liiga-club to venture into NHL esports.

    We’ve been planning our entry into esports for a long time already, it was really a matter of opportunity and Symphony struck us as a very potential team that wanted to work with us. We wanted to spice up our marketing with something new and an own esports team in the NHL scene is the perfect way to go in the current state of things. This allows us to present new opportunities in cooperation for our partners and serve our customers in a multitude of new ways.”  - Taneli Maasalo, JYP Jyvaskyla about entering the NHL esports scene.

    JYP is a prestigious club that has created a great brand. When they showed interest in us, we quickly found a similar note and decided to go ahead with the partnership. It’s also great to represent the first Liiga-team in NHL Esports.” - Team captain Santeri @indi969 Pendolin

    The roster that will be representing JYP is that of former Symphony, which received a major overhaul since ECL 9, which wasn’t up to standards for the team that usually pushes far into the postseason. Most notably, the team boosted their left flank by adding left defenseman Aaro @xDoumi Ruuhinen and left wing Kristian @kriketski17 Veijola to their lineup.

    Our NHL roster has a lot of likeness to our Liiga squad, where we have a bunch of veteran expertise combined with youthful talent. Symphony has established themselves as a playoff contender in ECL Elite and we want to be there in helping them take the next step. There’s a lot of potential, which is proven by earlier performances like the 2nd place in ECL 7 for example.”, says Maasalo.

    Can you watch these games from somewhere without a device and if you can where can you find the schedule in a simplest way? I’m really new to this if you can’t tell 🤣

    The schedule will be announced soon, I'll add a link to this reply once it's out. We don't use a fixed schedule yet, though so your best bet for catching when the team plays is following them on social media.

    Broadcasts are usually on twitch.tv

    Thanks so much for your reply. I don’t have a Facebook account and never did but I’m following JYP Jyväskylä on Twitter and on Youtube and I suppose that should be enough to get the information about their schedule and I already got it via Twitter that the playoffs of the league they’re playing will start on this wednesday april 8th. I can’t remember if there was a clear time but I assume it’s at the night time in Europe and that’s good enough for now.

    But thanks again for your help. I’ll be looking for that link as will propably many people who are as new about this as I am. But it seems like I should be ready to go to the twitch.tv on tomorrow night if I want to see this new (to me, even I knew it was out there, I’m not stupid or that far behind of our time 😉😄) thing my favourite team is diving into.

    So I’ll be waiting for that link even if I found what I was looking for without it (just because not everyone will find these things as easily as the hardcore new tech fans and the biggest reason for it is that you promised to provide that link and if your promises aren’t any good then why would you be any good, and I’m not trying to even hint that you’re not good for your word. I definitely trust that you’ll come through with your word and if and when you do you’ll be a good guy in my book and propably for many others 👍)

    See you tomorrow, sir/ma’am 😊🙋‍♂️
