Finland's SJK have named their 13-player squad for the upcoming 2024 IFCPF Club World Cup, starting in Barcelona on Wednesday.

Janne Nykänen will be an another option that SJK will have at their disposal, with the 20-year-old former FC Kontu starlet set to play a role in any potential successes.


Jesse Laajaranta will take the reins as head coach, with assistant coach and team manager Ville Sallinen adding to his coaching staff. Excited about his team's chances in the tournament, Sallinen says the team from Seinäjoki will make their presence felt.
