FC KTP (FC KooTeePee until 2013) is a former Finnish football club, based in the town of Kotka. In December 2013 the team joined back into The Kotkan Työväen Palloilijat and changed its name to FC KTP.
Originally FC KooTeePee was founded as a reserve team of Kotkan Työväen Palloilijat (founded 1927). In the year 2000 it became an independent club. At that time Kotkan Työväen Palloilijat was playing in Veikkausliiga, but was relegated to Ykkönen and finally went into bankruptcy. In the same season KooTeePee was promoted from Kolmonen to Kakkonen, and in two years it made its way to the highest level (coached first by Pasi Rautiainen and then Ismo Lius). In their last season of 2013, the team played in Ykkönen and was coached by Sami Ristilä.

FC KooTeePee used to be perhaps the best supported club in Finland (official "best supporters" award by Finnish Veikkausliiga committee 2004), with notable large followings away from home. KooTeePee fans were considered to be extremely passionate, loyal and genuine, willing to give their all for the team. They always expect the team to repay the compliment and only one hundred (plus something) percent commitment is acceptable.
