Not really, the "Green Men" just bought their suits. I go to Western and have seen "Purple Men" before the "Green Men" were popular

Saw the blue man today, just before the second Finnish penalty shot against Russia.

What about the Penis Head Man? or the Cow Man? or the Smurf Man? or the Wig Man? or the Santa Claus Man?

Damn these drunk hillbillies

I noticed really a lot Finnish fans wearing a costume. Is it some kind of tradition? Is it usual also in league games? My personal favourite is the pope or the guys with penis noses

I think part of the reason is that the games hit usually at the time of Walpurgis Night and Finns are feeling especially "festive".
Other than that i have thought about the same question myself. You don't really see this outside of this anywhere else with Finns.

It must have started (with Finns) around that Walpurgis Night but still:
