I think it could very well be easier. Although I'm sure they would also get quickly rid of you if they don't think you're good enough.
It's obviously tough to give any help when I have no clue how good you are, but in Finland I'd guess "III-divisioona" would be the correct level. It's the 5th tier of Finnish league system, but players don't get payed or anything. Or, if you would be good enough, you could get into "II-divisioona", the 4th tier, were some teams arrange work to the players or take care of apartment, eating etc.
If you have any questions whatsoever, feel free to ask here or PM me. Maybe we even could work something out (I have decent connections).
