HJK Helsinki Stats & History

Fredrik Wathen founded Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi, or HJK Helsinki, in 1907. The club quickly adopted blue and white colors in 1909 as a symbol of Finnish nationalism. They won the first Finnish championship in the HJK Helsinki stats in 1911. The 1910s were a great period for HJK Helsinki, as they won five Finnish titles.

In 1930, Finland finally introduced a league format in soccer, but HJK were unable to qualify for the first season. They did win league titles in 1936 and 1938, though. Over 20 HJK members across a handful of sports died fighting in WWII. It was difficult to recover from those losses, and the club declined as a result.

In 1963, HJK played their last season in the Finnish second division and have remained in the top flight ever since. They won their tenth Finnish title in the HJK Helsinki stats in 1964 upon returning to the Veikkausliiga. HJK played in the European Cup for the first time ever in 1965 but lost 9-2 to Manchester United, on aggregate. One year later, HJK won their first-ever Finnish Cup trophy.
