Registration begins at this website:


All competitors and match officials must register to the match by filling out the registration form (link in the left side menu). The registration form is enabled when the registration period starts. Registration is also required for spectators etc companions because the match is held inside a guarded military area and we need to apply access permits for each individual going inside the area. Spectators can be registered via email to the stats director, listing the same personal information as required from competitors on the registration form.

The total capacity of the main match is 168 shooters. Of these 33 (about 20%) is reserved for each guest Nordic country until March 23. After that date all slots that are left are given out on first-come first-served fashion, except the last 20 slots are reserved to be allocated at the discretion of the match organizers.

See the schedule link on the left side menu for more information.


Registration fees must be paid after receiving a confirmed slot in the match to the bank account of Porkkalan Ampujat ry specified below. Remember to use your payment reference code in your payment, it is shown after receiving a confirmed slot on the registered shooters list. Registrations with overdue payments will be considered cancelled and the slots will be redistributed if the match becomes full. See the schedule page for payment due dates.

The above also applies to foreign shooters. Participants having a bank account in a SEPA country (EU + a few others) should use a SEPA transfer to pay the registration fee in euros (transaction fee code SHA, if asked). If you are paying from a non-SEPA country, remember in your payment transaction to choose to pay all transaction fees (transaction fee code OUR) and also use euro as the payment currency. If paying for multiple shooters in a single transaction, you MUST include payment reference codes for all shooters in your transaction message.

Foreign shooters

We welcome foreign shooters, who are members of their respective IPSC region, to this match. Please respect the last registration date mentioned on the schedule page, because we need to apply for a special pass to get you inside the military areas the match is held in.

Firearm licensing requirements

To bring a firearm into Finland for a shooting competition, you will always need to be in possession of a match invitation and a firearm license that is accepted in Finland. A firearm license that is valid for bringing a firearm into Finland also allows you to bring, be in possession of, and buy ammunition for that firearm. There will be no match ammo for sale at the ranges, but you can buy ammo from any regular gun store with your license. You can download the match invitation from the link in the left side menu.

If you are coming from a Nordic country (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland), you can bring your locally licensed firearms to Finland based on your national license. If you are coming with firearms from an EU/EEA country outside of the Nordic countries, you will need to have a European Firearms Pass. A European Firearms Pass is also recommended for shooters coming from the Nordic countries. There is no need to declare firearms at the Finnish border, when coming from an EU/EEA country with a European Firearms Pass or a national license from a Nordic country.

If you are coming from outside of EU/EEA and wish to bring your firearms to this match, please contact the match director immediately, as a separate firearm import license needs to be applied for you. You will also need to declare your firearms at the customs when crossing the Finnish border, both when coming into Finland and when leaving Finland.

Also note that countries you transit through with firearms and/or ammunition may have their own extra requirements. For example Sweden requires a Weapons Declaration for transiting Nordic citizens.


There are no official match hotels. Book your hotels early, especially around Hanko/Syndalen, because the Hanko regatta event is organized on the same weekend.
