Mikkelin Palloilijat (or MP) is a Finnish football club, based in Mikkeli. Club was formed in 1929 and has also had teams in volleyball, ice hockey and bandy. It played in the Finnish First Division (Ykkönen) from 2004 to 2006 but was relegated to Kakkonen at the end of the season. The club gained promotion to Ykkönen by winning the Group A of Kakkonen 2009 but was immediately relegated back to Kakkonen in 2010. The club's manager is Janne Wilkman, and it plays its home matches at Mikkelin Urheilupuisto.

Ice hockey departments of MP and local rivals MiPK merged in 1970, creating new club Jukurit. Jukurit has then been quite successful in Finnish amateur levels of ice hockey. However the only medal on Finnish championship level is still won by MP, a bronze in A-juniors year 1961.

Bandy department of MP was disbanded in 1977. After that colours of Mikkeli on bandy fields have been represented by Mikkelin Kampparit. Kampparit was formed in 1972, same year when Finnish Bandy Federation separated from Finnish FA. MP was a pioneer of women's football in Finland, forming one of the first ladies team. The spot in Naisten Liiga was moved from MP to Porrassalmen Urheilijat-62 in 1992.
