History

BK-46 was founded in 1946 and from the outset specialised in the sports of football and handball. The club has been more successful at handball and the men's team have won the SM Championship 20 times and the women's SM championship once.

The club has not always been successful and in 1974 ceased operations completely as the result of a poor economic situation. When the organisation was re-launched it was as two separate sections for football and handball.

BK-46 most successful period for football was in the late 1950s and the 1960s when they spent 4 seasons in the Suomensarjaa (Finland League), which at that time was the second tier of Finnish football, in 1957, 1961 and 1968-69.[1] There then followed many barren years in the lower divisions until 2009 when the club won Section 1 of the Kolmonen (Helsinki and Uusimaa). The year 2010 is the club's first season in the Kakkonen (Second Division), the third tier of Finnish football.
