There was nobody to make a difference in Finland, but never mind: the deep north had something interesting to pull out of the sleeve. Two separate Cup finals were played in 1977, most likely catching up for the missed Cup tournament in 1975. Straightening the record book, so to say. The first was played in April and Ilves (Tampere) lost it 0-2 to Reipas (Lahti).
The championship was not much, especially at the bottom of the league – MP Mikkeli and VPS Vaasa were hopelessly occupying the relegation spots. Their combined record amassed to 23 points, which would be good for 7th place. In 12-club league... you can figure out the state of the relegated. Up the table 5 points divided 2nd from 10th place, which means equal strength, but KuPs (Kuopio) finished 2nd with 26 points, running high thanks to experience, yet, never contesting the title this year.
Haka were overwhelming champions, 7 points ahead of the next pursuer, and winning 15 out of total 22 matches.
