Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi (or HJK), internationally known as HJK Helsinki,[citation needed] is a Finnish football club, based in the capital Helsinki. They are the most successful Finnish club in history.

History

The club was founded as "Helsingfors Fotbollsklubb" in 1907 by Fredrik Wathen.

Generally considered Finland's biggest club, HJK Helsinki is also the most successful Finnish club in terms of league championships with 22. The club has also won ten Finnish Cups and four Finnish League Cups. Many of Finland's internationally most successful players have played for HJK Helsinki before moving abroad.

HJK Helsinki is the only Finnish club to have played in the UEFA Champions League group stage. They did so in the 1998–1999 season, 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.

Formerly HJK had ice hockey and bandy sections. In 1972 the hockey section separated to independent club Helsingin Jääkiekkoklubi.
