Welcome to Korson Palloseura (Korso Football Club) web site!

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 Pelaaminen KOPSEssa (playing in KOPSE) in particular. The pages are written in Finnish but Google Translate should do a decent job to translate them to your native language.

If you have any further questions (how to proceed or otherwise), please contact e.g., our executive director, Mr. Juha Mattila or other members of the board (see the Contact info on this page).

Sponsoring contract signed with Vantaan Energia

Kuva roskasta ja sen keruusta

Vantaan Energia is a new sponsor of our turf field in Joki­varsi.

According to the contract, we shall join the roskattomin kaupunki (trash-free city) challenge. Korson Pallo­seura accepted the challenge and participated to the Siisti Korso (Clean Korso) event to tidy up the central parts of the Korso. The results were a number of black trash bags containing garbage from various parts of Korso.

In addition, we shall keep clean the surroundings of the Joki­varsi field and participate in Tikkurila Festival clean-up activities. In future, we shall mark this type of activities in Facebook with the #roskattomin­kaupunki hash tag.




4.5.2017 14:40

The additional meeting will be held in Ruusu­paviljonki on 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

2.5.2017 11:00

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.
