Football clubs cancelled on Sunday
Legirus Arena's operator tells that the dome will not rise on Sunday, 5.11.2017.
Due to this, both football clubs have been cancelled on that day.
We are soryr about this and hope the operator will get the dome back in action
as soon as possible.
KOPSE offers replacement turns to the football clubs on January 14th and 21th.
Legirus Arena's dome has collapsed, probably due to weight of snow.
All use of the Arena has been cancelled until futher notice. More information
shall be provided later.
According to Peakfin, the dome will be repaired during the next week and the
dome should be up on November 4th.
City council has promised that Jokivarsi turf shall be cleaned from snow as

Fundraising in Korson Palloseura
We have opened the new Varainhankinta (Fundraising) page (fi),
where we tell how and why the club raises funds to allow its operation and why it is
important. The page contains links to buy virtual squares from the new Aulis Aktia
Areena turf field, or donate money to support the club activities.
JOKIVARSI FIELD IS NOW AULIS AKTIA AREENA
Known earlier by its name "Jokivarsi football field" and known for as one of
KOPSE's home fields, the field has been renamed as Aulis Aktia Areena (arena).
The new name honours our honorary chairman Aulis Joronen, one of the founding
fathers of Korson Palloseura for his life-long work for bringing the club
to the position it has today.

AULIS AKTIA AREENA
Korson Palloseura was founded by its current honorary chairman Aulis Joronen
and a few other parents in 1980. Jokivarsi field acted as one of the club's
home fields at that time.
Korson Palloseura's first own turf field was taken into use here on Sep 9, 2017.
We celebrate the opening of the new turf field on September 9th, 2017 between 11 am and 2 pm.
The event is for the whole family and it is free. We recommend that players use bicycles
to arrive to the field since there is only limited parking space available. Additional parking space
can be found from the other side of the school building.
Bicycle and bus route maps can be found on the
Kentät (fields) page.
More details about the event from the poster below (fi).
Unfortunately, hair dresser students cannot participate.
