The Eliteserien is the best football division in Norway. The league consists of 16 teams and runs from May to December. The weather conditions make it interesting for football bettors as the Eliteserien is in full swing during the summer months when most European leagues are in their preseasons.
Betting on the Norwegian football championship
The Norwegian champions get a ticket to the Champions League, while the second and third-placed teams (along with the Norwegian Cup winner) go straight to the Conference League.
Work out your bets on the Europa League Conference — a competition sponsored for the next few seasons by bwin on our online sports betting platform.
Getting back into the competition in February is always a tricky part of the season as Norwegian teams are short of not competing during the period between late winter and early spring.
At the bottom of the standings, the last team in the Eliteserien is automatically relegated to the 1st division of Norway, while the 14th and 15th placed teams play a relegation playoff against the winners of the 1st division playoffs.
Two teams have taken over from Rosenborg
With 26 league titles, Rosenborg is the most successful team in Norway. They are also the best-known Norwegian team on the European scene, with regular appearances in the Champions League and Europa League over the past 30 seasons.
However, in the last three seasons, Molde FK and Bodø/Glimt have risen up, finishing the Eliteserien season in the top two positions. FK Bodø/Glimt won their first Norwegian league title in 2020 and confirmed it by retaining the title for the second consecutive season in 2021.
