Joel Perovuo (born 11 August 1985 in Helsinki) is a Finnish professional football player who is currently playing for the Finnish Kakkonen side FC Honka.


Perovuo began his career with Espoon PS on youthside, before moving to FC Honka. He gradually became an important player in the Honka team. In December 2009 Djurgården announced that Perovuo had signed with the Swedish team.[1]

On 12 August 2011 it was announced that Perovuo had signed for the reigning Finnish champions, HJK, for two-and-half years. He made his debut for HJK on 18 August as he came on as a substitute in a 2–0 home victory over Schalke in the Europa League playoff-round.

In 2015 Perovuo returned to FC Honka after the team was relegated to Kakkonen due to financial problems.
