This is a busy time of year at the North Pole in the Arctic Circle.  But Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick is an accommodating soul and made sure someone was on hand to answer Reddit AMA questions this afternoon.


FC Santa Claus’ Managing Director and Chairman of FC Santa Claus, Juha Eteläinen, was the lead elf and answered questions from the ambitions of the club to biggest moment in club history to who would be better at lighting the way for Santa’s sleigh…Rudolph or a red-nosed Sir Alex Ferguson.

FC Santa Claus is the professional soccer club based in Rovaniemi, Finland.  Although not right at the North Pole, the club has made their city the home-away-from-home for Santa.  The training facility is called the ‘Santa Sport,’ Saint Nick roams the sideline during home matches, and fans chant Christmas carols during matches.

The official jersey copies the look of Santa with a classic solid red home jersey with crew collar made by Nike and a solid white jersey for the away.
