Welcome

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).

Refreshing Ruusupaviljonki's surroundings

19.4.2017 20:10

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 25th of April, take your rake and come to work with us to clean the area from leaves and branches, starting at 2 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.
