To clarify, he said in the Finnish papers that the door is open for Finnish teams to join and thinks it could happen in two years. He thinks there's enough money or companies to sponsor a team in Finland but clearly he hasn't been looking at the state of Finnish economy lately. Lots of companies laying off people and sport sponsorship in general being on the decline or companies at least being very conservative. Funniest example of a company he mentioned naturally was Nokia. Guess he doesn't own Nokia stock. So yeah, it's not happening anytime soon, if ever.
