Conifa world ranking 15


Lapland is a geographic region, divided between the states of Norway, Russia, Sweden and Finland. The Sami are official recognized as a minority group in the 3 Scandinavian countries.
There is currently a renaissance of Sami culture, with groups that perform traditional music, as well as youth groups that incorporate features of that music to more modern sounds. FA Sápmi was established in March 2014. It’s the successor of the Sámi Football Association, which was founded in 2003 and played 3 VIVA World Cups (of which they one the first, in 2006). The CONIFA World Fooball Cup 2014 was hosted by the Sapmi. The team ended 10th.
