Background

The club was founded on 30 November 2005 as a flagship club for the Keski-Uusimaa area with Järvenpään Palloseura, Keravan Pallo-75 and Tuusulan Palloseura as the feeder clubs. Founder club members included Jussi Hautamäki, Mikko Honkanen, Miika Tiira, Lassi Kunttu, Markku Pyykkölä, Raine Nieminen, Tero Valtonen, Pekka Ekegren and Timo Helkamo.

The project had been considered as early as 1988 but the time was not right. However, in the early 2000 decade discussions were reopened by the leading local clubs (JäPS, KP-75 and TuPS) and joint working initiatives came forward such as staff training, the Lionsliigaa (Lions League) for 12- to 15-year-olds and the Keski-Uusimaa Academy.

On 15 December 2005 the clubs gave their final approval to the project and the historic three-club umbrella organisation was established. The PK Keski-Uusimaa club does not compete with the feeder clubs with, but complements them enabling the more talented and motivated high-profile players (B-juniors upwards) to play locally rather than in Helsinki.

PK Keski-Uusimaa has been playing in the Kakkonen (the Second Division), the third tier of Finnish football since 2008. [1]
