Background

MPS (often known as "mapsi" or "ämpsi") is widely appreciated for their good work in developing junior football. Currently, the best known youngsters that have come through the club's ranks are Vesa Vasara (FC Honka), John Kangas (FC Honka), Roope Heilala (FC Honka) and Mika Kottila (MPS).

MPS are one of Helsinki's biggest football clubs and the junior section has enjoyed great prestige. Each year new teams are formed and the membership is constantly growing. A key priority for MPS is the development of youth and junior football education . Youngsters are then able to progress to the adult male and female teams.

An interesting development has been the progress of Atletico Malmi who since 2007 have achieved 3 consecutive promotions moving from the Kutonen (Sixth Division) to the Kolmonen (Third Division) to now play at the same level as the club's first team.

MPS is affiliated to the Helsinki District Association of the Football Association of Finland. In 2003 it was the District Association's Club of the Year and in 1998 won the Fair Play Award.
