I watched the soccer game NL-EST a few months ago and kept being distracted by the font on the Estonian players' shirts. Very nice.

I tried identifying the font through WhatTheFont, but didn't succeed.

Font sample

It could of course be a custom-made font, just for those shirts.

i think they not used any font, look like Photoshop or AI drawing – Bala May 7 '13 at 10:38

This looks very much like this font is based on lettering by various Estonian artists in 1960-1970s which is very similar to the traditional Basque style.

You can see some relevant lettering samples here:

but unfortunately I was unable to find any actual fonts based on these.

The second one is pretty close! – Reinout van Rees May 7 '13 at 12:10
Heh :) I was checking out the image in the second link and I just thought I was reading it wrong, but then I realized it was Estonian. -- Estonian uses a whole lot of same/similar words as we do in Finnish, although the meaning of the words are different ...and my reading sucks. – Joonas May 7 '13 at 12:16
This one, from the same site, also looks pretty similar: – Reinout van Rees May 7 '13 at 12:29
Mart Anderson currently occupies the position of art director at DDB Eesti, if you really need any collaboration I think you can contact him via LinkedIn – Const May 7 '13 at 12:53
I may suggest a roughly similar font, P22 Yule Heavy: – Const May 7 '13 at 18:12
