Iidle Elmi (born 1 January 1995) is a Somalian born Finnish footballer who last played for FC YPA in the Finnish third tier Kakkonen. He has previously played for FF Jaro in the Finnish top division Veikkausliiga and for FB Gulbene in the Latvian Virsliga.


Elmi joined the FF Jaro junior squad in 2009. He signed a three-year contract with Jaro's first team in January 2011.[1] In 2015 he was signed by the Latvian side FB Gulbene,[2] but the club was expelled from the top league and their results expunged on suspicion of match-fixing.[3] Elmi returned Finland for the next season.[4]
