Abstract [en]

Background/problem/issue

“Jokerit to KHL 2014”: this was the biggest sports-related news in Finland summer 2013. On a well-attended press conference in Helsinki Jokerits owner Mr. Harry “Hjallis” Harkimo informed that he decided to move Jokerit from Helsinki to the Russian ice hockey league Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) season 2014/2015. KHL was established “[t]o promote the successful development of hockey in Russia and other countries in Europe and Asia” and has clubs from several European counties; example Belarus, Croatia, Latvia, Czech republic and since 2014 Finland.

The sporting and economic magnitude of Jokerits move to KHL should be borne in mind that Jokerit is one of Finland's most successful ice hockey clubs in sporting terms and one of Finland's largest ice hockey clubs in financial terms. According the Finnish journalist Kaj Kunnas at YLE Mr. Harkimos reason to move Jokerit is easy to understand: "Money, money, money." In terms of Americanization we can speak of profit-maximization à la American model (major leagues) has become a part of Finnish ice hockey.

The main problem and research task is to analyze Jokerits move to KHL considering this was a huge step away from the traditional organization of Finnish (and Nordic) ice hockey and sports in general.

Method

Document analysis and interviews with Jokerits owner Mr. Harkimo, the chairman of the Finnish ice hockey federation Kalervo Kummola and stakeholders of Swedish ice hockey (Nordic aspect).

Theory

Americanization. The term Americanization means of tradition that American influence and culture is received/imported/forced to a country (ice hockey).

Result

Mr. Harkimo has moved Jokerit to KHL to develop the business of European ice hockey despite the traditional organization (sport model) of Finnish and Nordic ice hockey.
