Welcome to Korson Palloseura (Korso Football Club)
We hope that these pages provide you information about how to get
started playing football, the #1 team sport in the world, in Korson Palloseura
(KOPSE). KOPSE is the leading regional football club
of Korso, a suburb of city of Vantaa.
In order to contact the members of the board of the club, see the
Johtokunta (board) page. To find out what
teams play in KOPSE and find the one that suits your age and skills, see the
Joukkueet (teams) page. There you will find names and links to
the teams for boys (starting with letter P) and girls (starting with letter T), followed
by the year of birth (e.g., "00" is 2000). Adult players in KOPSE play in one of two teams:
Miehet (men) and Naiset (women).
If you or your son or daughter are interested to start a new and exciting sports activity
in KOPSE, do not hesitate to contact us. For more information and pictures, browse the site;
Esittely (introduction) and

The pages are written in Finnish but Google Translate should do a decent job to translate
them to your native language.

executive director, Mr. Juha Mattila or other members of the board (see the

17th of May, 2017 at 18.00.
In order to procure the new turf, the bank loan applied to KOPSE Tekonurmi oy
must be accompanied by warranties of equal amount from Korson Palloseura.
The financial state of the club is very good. Therefore, the Board is
applying for a permission to give warranties of maximum value of 50 000 € to
KOPSE Tekonurmi oy, utilizing e.g., additional incomes which were not
budgeted for year 2017. The project does not affect the economy of the teams.
New date for refreshing Ruusupaviljonki's surroundings
Easy spring-time raking is available in open air around the Ruusupaviljonki
building. You may want to come for 20 minutes or two hours; it is up to you!
Ruusupaviljonki ("Rose Pavillion") is
a nice space for events, meetings and courses. It is managed by a union of
associations like Korson Palloseura and other sports clubs. It is important
to keep the place in good condition and outside looking fresh. So, it you haven't
planned anything more important for Tuesday, May 9th, take your rake and come
to work with us to clean the area from leaves and branches, starting at 3 pm.
At the same occasion, you may take a peek in the place to see if it is suitable
for your own events; e.g., birthday parties, meetings, training courses, etc.
The spaces are rented for a very competitive price.
