Norway Eliteserien Season Endings
   November 19, 2012 (1:48 AM) by David     Email This Post Email This Post

So here we go with the wrap on Norway. The regular season ended yesterday, while the First Division ended last week. Most of the promotion and relegation is all set with the exception of the last promotion/relegation playoff spot.

 Norway Eliteserien

Top Three

Molde (Champions League) enter 2nd round

Stromsgodset (Europa League) enter 2nd round

Rosenborg (Europa League) enter 1st round


Bottom Three

Stabaek (Relegated)

Fredrikstad (Relegated)

Sandnes ULF (Relegation/Promotion Playoff v Ullensaker)

The Relegation/Promotion Playoff First Leg will be on  November 21st. Ullensaker will host the first game. The Second Leg will be at Sandnes ULF on November 24th.


From a US OT perspective

Josh Gatt will be playing Champions League football next year. Mikkel Diskerud will be playing in the Europa League.

Chad Barrett with Valerenga will be staying in the Eliteserien as will Steve Clark with Honefoss.

Sean Cunningham (on loan from Molde) and Erik Benjaminsen with Stabaek will be in the First Division.

Decided in the Playoff; either Kenneth Di Vita Jensen (on loan from Honefoss) with Ullensaker will be in Eliteserien or will remain in the First Division.

    Cunningham is just on loan at Stabaek right? Will he be going back to Molde or did I miss something?

  2. Piaggio says:

    Cunningham went back to Molde already. He was only there on a loan and I doubt Stabaek can afford to buy any players at the moment (tough financial situation, getting relegated to the 2nd division just makes it worse).

  3. David says:

    Rich, no you didn’t miss anything. Sean is/was on a season long loan from Molde. With the season just completed Sean would automatically return to Molde (my bad). There are no reports concerning his future, Solskjær did get his wish, Sean got senior level play time (18 Games)with Stabaek. As soon as I get any info on any (Sean) player I will post it.

    Thank you!

    Oh Dear, Oh Dear, Ullensaker and Kenneth have dug themselves a really deep hole (or maybe pit is a better word)
    Losing 4 – 0 at home in the first leg,IMO,looks insurmountable. They held on (@1 -0) through the 80th minute,then colapsed,3 goals given up in the last 10 minutes. Saturdays second leg looks all to easy for Sandnes ULF, and their place in Eliteserien seems assured.

    Kenneth did go 90 and picked up a yellow card.
