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).
