In 2019 the Finnish Shooting Sport Federation, FSSF (SAL in Finnish), celebrates its 100th anniversary, (hence the SAL 100 in the WC logo). The FSSF was established in 1919, less than two years after our independance. This makes our federation one of the oldest sports federations in Finland.

The ISSF World Cup in Lahti is one of the main anniversary celebrations. The patron for the 100th anniversary year and thus also for the World Cup is the President of the Republic of Finland mr. Sauli Niinistö.
