In Finland, the Suomen mestaruus (SM; ‘Finnish Champion’) is the winner of the highest level of national competition in a particular sport. Suomen mestaruussarja (Finnish for ‘Finnish Championship’) is the competition in which the winning athlete, team, or club is named Finnish Champion. The abbreviation SM-sarja is often used when discussing the highest-level league of a sport that competes for the Finnish Championship or the specific competition in which a Finnish Champion is named. The abbreviation SM-liiga (Finnish Champion’s League) is commonly used when discussing the premier league of a sport that has been designated with liiga status; though SM-liiga can refer to any Finnish Championship league, it is most often used when discussing the men's ice hockey Liiga.
