AC Vantaan Allianssi (or AC Allianssi) was a Finnish football club, based in the town of Vantaa.

Allianssi have been a club in decline since an 8-0 defeat at fellow Finnish club FC Haka. The match was believed to have been fixed by a Belgian-Chinese betting cartel, which took control of the club in summer 2005. A subsequent police investigation failed to find sufficient evidence of match fixing though.[1] In 2006, a former managing director Olivier Suray admitted that the notorious match was fixed. He however accused Chinese owner Zheyun Ye for fixing.[2]

On April 11, 2006, club chairman Erkki Salo announced that the club would be filing for bankruptcy with immediate effect.
