The Vancouver Finlandia Club has a strong history in sport. There have been many teams, groups and programs for a variety of different sports, like cross-country skiing, bowling, volleyball, gymnastics and pesäpallo. There are currently no active sports teams, but activities such as hikes and pesäpallo are organized throughout the year.
VFC Sports also helps organize annual events, including the Paavo Nurmi Run, Wife Carrying Contest, and Lumileikkipäivä (Snow Fun Day). VFC Sports also collaborates with ScanSports, based out of the Scandinavian Community Centre to organize more sporting events for the whole community at the Scandinavian Centre.
