Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi (also simply known as HJK Helsinki or Helsinki and HJK) is a professional football club based in Helsinki, Finland.

Generally considered Finland's biggest club, HJK is the most successful Finnish club in terms of Veikkausliiga titles with 27. The club has also won twelve Finnish Cups and five Finnish League Cups. Many of Finland's most successful players have played for HJK before moving abroad.

HJK is the only Finnish club that has participated in the UEFA Champions League group stage. In 1998 they beat FC Metz in the playoff round to clinch their place in the competition for the following season. HJK has also participated in the UEFA Europa League in 2014, beating SK Rapid Wien in the playoff round. The club's highest score in a European competition came during the 2011–12 season, with a 13-0 aggregate victory over Welsh champions Bangor City, which included a 10-0 win at home.

History[edit]

The Club was founded as "Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi – Helsingfors Fotbollsklubb" in 1907 by Fredrik Wathén. The founding meeting was held at a bowling alley in Kaisaniemi Park in May. First match was played in 19th of June against Ekenäs IF in Ekenäs, HJK won the match 2-4. From early on, HJK became popular amongst Finnish speaking students while Swedish speaking students preferred to play mainly for KIF or HIFK. In late 1908 after a heated debate, the language was switched to unilingually Finnish and this resulted in many Swedish speaking members switching over to HIFK and other clubs although a few chose to stay.

In 1909 the colours blue and white were chosen to support the fennoman movement and bandy was introduced as the club's second official sport. The club moved from Kaisaniemi Ground to a new stadium in Eläintarha, at end of the year Fredrik Wathen was forced to leave his post as the club's chairman due to his illness and in 1910 Lauri Tanner became the longest running club chairman to date. The first championship title was won in 1911. In 1915 the club moved to newly build Töölön Pallokenttä. In 1916 tennis was introduced as the third official sport in HJK, and it was played in the club until early 1920s. During the Finnish civil war in 1918 HJK lost two club members, both fighting for the white side.

In 1921 the first bandy championship was won and during the following five seasons HJK reached five finals winning three more titles. Bowling was added to the club's repertoire in 1925, but the bowlers formed their own club Helsingin Keilaajat the following year. In 1928 ice hockey became an official sport and the first championship was won in 1929. League format was introduced to Finnish football in 1930 but HJK failed to qualify for the first season. In 1931 HJK played their first season in the league but at the end of the season they got relegated.

During the Second World War HJK lost 22 members serving in the military of which nine fell in the Winter War, twelve in the Continuation War and one in the Lapland War. In 1943 handball was introduced as the club's sixth official sport. HJK won one silver and two bronze medals in handball during the following three seasons but did not gain further success. Handball was first of HJK's sports' where also women competed, womens' team played a total of 22 seasons at the highest level, their best finish being fourth.

In 1963 HJK played their last ever season in the second level of the football pyramid, winning 20 out of 22 matches and scoring 127 goals. In 1964 the newly promoted team won their tenth championship title and following year the first European cup match was played against Manchester United at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium. However, a 2-9 loss on aggregate threw the Helsinki based club out of the competition.

In 1966 the club secured their first ever cup title by winning KTP 6-1 in the final in front of 7000 spectators. Bandy section was disbanded in the late 1960s. The last official sport, figure skating, was added into the club's repertoire in 1966 but it was abolished soon after in 1972. The ice hockey section was also disbanded in 1972 and the last season in handball was played in 1978. From this moment on the HJK were again a football only club after 69 years of being a multisport club.

1998 saw HJK to be the first and to date only Finnish club to play in the UEFA Champions League, triumphing over FC Metz in the second qualifying round. The club also managed a respectable five points in their group, beating Benfica at home and earning draws at home to Kaiserslautern and away to Benfica. They lost to PSV Eindhoven twice and to Kaiserslautern away.

The club's current home stadium, Sonera Stadium, was opened in 2000. The twentieth championship title was won in 2002 and in 2008 the club won its tenth cup title. 2009 was a start of a never before seen and still continuing championship run has resulted in six titles in a row so far.

In 2014 HJK became the first Finnish club to play in the UEFA Europa League group stage after winning Rapid Wien in the playoff round. HJK won Torino FC and FC Copenhagen at home and finished third in the group with six points.[1][2][3]

Supporters and Rivalries[edit]

Historically HJK had a wide support within Finnish speaking middle class of Helsinki. Club's supporters were often nationalistic after the fashion of almost every other SPL club at the time. Leftist working class' clubs played their own leagues and competitions under TUL. However, The Club remained to stay open to all honorable citizens regardless of their native language, race or social class, and always had members from other communities as well. Before the 1970s HJK came to be known especially as a Töölöan club due to most of their activity taking place in this particular district.

During recent decades the club's notable image as middle class' bunch from Töölö has disappeared due to social changes in Finland as well as migration from inner city to housing projects built the during mass migration from countryside during 1960s and 1970s.[6][7]

The Stadin derby and other local rivalries[edit]

HJK's main rivalries in Helsinki are widely considered to be Kiffen, HPS and HIFK. In the past these were the big four clubs from Helsinki. The clubs were mainly separated by language, HJK and HPS being Finnish speaking clubs whereas HIFK and KIF were Swedish speaking, and to some extent by neighborhoods. These four clubs competed also in bandy, ice hockey and handball. The support for HJK mainly came from around the city center and in later years from Töölö, HPS' support was mostly active around Vallila and Alppila districts. KIF and HPS were both struggling to survive and were relegated to lower leagues, HPS played their last top level season in 1964 and KIF in 1978. Since then these two clubs have played in lower leagues and have lost the vast majority of their support base.

HJK and HIFK share the biggest rivalry being two of the oldest and most successful clubs. A match between these two clubs is called as Stadin derby. Language was the biggest separating factor between the clubs, HIFK was the club of choice for the Swedish speaking population of the city and HJK for the Finnish speaking. In 2015 HIFK was promoted back to the top flight after 40 years of struggling in the lower leagues having played their last season in the top division in 1972. Since HJK ceased their activity in other sports during 1960s and 1970s the rivalry faded away on a large scale and in recent decades many even supported both clubs at the same time, HJK in football and HIFK in ice hockey. However due to the rise of the Finnish supporter scene in the 2000s, there is a high tension between the most vocal supporters.

HJK shared a short but fierce rivalry with FC Jokerit around the late 1990s and the early 2000s. Jokerit were well supported due to their popular ice hockey section and the clubs also competed against each other in ice hockey in the late 1960s and the early 1970s. [8] [9][10]

Multiple Helsinki based clubs have played in the league but due to their short term visits and relatively low support base large scale rivalries were never born. Some notable clubs were Ponnistus, FinnPa, Pallo-Pojat and Helsingin Toverit

[11][12][13][14][15][16]

Helsinki-Lahti rivalry[edit]

HJK has competed against Lahti based clubs from the 1960s, between 1963 and 1978 HJK and Lahden Reipas had a minor rivalry as both clubs won three league titles and two runner-ups, HJK were four times third and Reipas three times third, Reipas also won seven cup titles against one of HJK. A more notable rivalry was against Kuusysi from the early 1980s to the mid-1990s. Between 1981 and 1992 HJK won six league titles against Kuusysi's five, both clubs also won the cup twice, facing two times in the finals (which were both won by HJK). Both clubs also performed well in the European competitions. In 1996 both the Lahti clubs merged and FC Lahti was born, HJK and FC Lahti matches are more known from outside pitch activities, some crowd disturbances and small fights have occurred[17] which otherwise are rare in Finnish football. Due to a relatively short distance between the two cities, these matches often draw more notable away support than others.

HJK-Haka rivalry[edit]

HJK and Valkeakosken Haka are the two most successful clubs in Finnish football, HJK with 27 league and 12 cup titles and Haka with 9 league and 12 cup titles. The match is also considered as "urban vs. rural" rivalry as HJK is a club from Finland's biggest city Helsinki and Haka is representing the small town of Valkeakoski.
