Julle

2013-07-10

Arne"Julle" Eriksson lived in Jakobstad, Pietarsaari, Finland. He is still the only referee from Finland who has had the honor of officiating in a World Cup (in 1958 in Sweden).

Book
He was deeply impressed with Pele. A book was published about his life long work for fotball in Finland and his work as a CEO of the Finnish Fotball Association. Unfortunately his family cannot read the book as they are Swedish speaking.

We owe this information to Tina Duffy, his granddaughter.
