Inter Turku or Football Club International Turku is a football club in Finland, located in the city Turku. It was formed in 1990 by the owner of Alfons Håkans company, Stefan Håkans. His son couldn’t join any football academy and a new youth team was formed in Turku. Two years later a senior team was formed, which began to compete in the fourth highest division. Then they took the place of Turun Toverit, which had faced financial problems, and winning the third level Inter advanced to Ykkönen (or the First Division).
In 1995, the team won Ykkönen, reached the semifinal of the Finnish Cup and promoted to the top flight. In 1997 Inter faced relegation from Veikkausliiga, competed in Ykkönen for a season and returned to the top division. Since then players from the academy have grown, new players from other countries joined the club. In 2008 Inter claimed their first Veikkausliiga victory and the Finnish League Cup; in 2009 they won the Finnish Cup.
Their home venue is Veritas Stadion with a capacity of 9,372, located in Kupittaa, Turku.
