Season 2024: Objectives


Ahead of the 2024 Veikkausliga season, Kalle Koskinen met with the club's board to discuss objectives for the 2024 season. The objectives included on-field performances, controlled by Kalle Koskinen himself, as well as of-field performances. Janne Partanen, the owner of the club, conveyed his objectives through his assigned task leaders who ran the rule over the various aspects of the fooball club.

Footballing Objectives

Jack Bamford

Jack Bamford: "Last season was a dream one for this football club. A top half finish and securing European football marked another step in Viikingit's journey to the top, and we now ask for another step to be made this season. Avoid relegation from the league, reach the knockout rounds of the Suomen Cup and get to the Second Qualifying Round of the UEFA Europa Conference League. They are our on-field expectations. Anything more will be considered a bonus."

Luke Hendricks: "The growth of this football club has been evident by the increase in numbers at our games. We had a total attendance of over 10,000 across last season, with our average attendance at 578. With a season of Veikkausliga football behind us, and European football to look forward to, we can be optimistic about our attendance figures increasing further this year. We can set lofty objectives."

Last Season's Peak Attendance Objective: Have at least one game where more than 1,000 fans attend (ACHIEVED)

Season Ticket Objectives

James Viduka

James Viduka: "The season ticket holders are really the core of our at-game club support. They attend every game and embody the passion and aspirations of this football club. We were delighted with the increaee in fans we experienced last season, and we hit our target for this season. We set a target of 240 season ticket sales and achieved 241 season ticket sales this season. We hope to continue seeing this go in the right direction in the coming seasons."

Last Season's Season Ticket Sales Objective: Sell more than 200 season tickets (ACHIEVED)

This Season's Season Ticket Sales Objective: Sell more than 240 season tickets (ACHIEVED)

The club is making such tremendous progress in all areas, and there's a serious amount of talent within the squad too. I've no doubt that a few of the lads will attract enormous offers in the future, which will help for the club to keep moving in the right direction. The fact that Kalle seems to be guiding the club into a position where he's meeting [or going to meet] all the objectives that they've set him is a real testament, and I'm hopeful that we'll see some silverware this season.

Vestnes is crucial to EVERYTHING.
