Eliteserien | Norway - an overview

The Norway Eliteserien is the top level of men’s professional football in the Norwegian league for association football clubs. There are 16 clubs playing for the right to challenge for the two domestic cups, the Norwegian Cup and the Mesterfinalen. This league also plays into UEFA European qualifiers too. Seasons run a little different due to weather conditions in Norway, so a typical season is between March to November. The teams are made up of seven teams from Eastern Norway, five are from Western Norway, and two teams based north of the Arctic Circle. Tromsø holds the title as the northernmost top-level football club in the world. There is no promotion from the Eliteserien, but the top team at the end of the season qualifies for the UEFA Champions League. The runner up enters the 2nd stage qualifying round of the Champions League. Third and fourth-placed teams qualify for the Europa League. One further Europa League place is determined by domestic cup competition. Relegation from the Eliteserien league feeds into the 1. Divisjon.
