Espoon Honka was a basketball club based in Espoo, Finland and it played in Korisliiga. The club was dissolved in 2011 due to financial difficulties.

History[edit]

Espoon Honka was originally founded in 1975 as a professional team apart from Tapiolan Honka, which worked as a feeder team and took responsibility for organizing youth teams and other activities. Espoon Honka played a total of 16 seasons in the Korisliiga and achieved 7 championship titles.

Espoon Honka didn't play in the 2011–12 season of Korisliiga due to financial problems and the whole team was then dissolved later that year. A new team was then founded under the name Tapiolan Honka.[1]
