The sleeping giants of Norwegian football.
The pride of Bergen, Norway’s second city, Brann are the perennial underachievers of Norwegian football. Despite having one of the better stadiums in the country and with generally solid home support, Brann have won the Norwegian league just once since 1963. After recovering from relegation in 2014, they returned to the Eliteserien the season after and capped a remarkable comeback with a second place finish in 2016, albeit 15 points behind champions Rosenborg.

Brann play their home games in their own Brann Stadion, a stadium they built in 1924. Located at the foot of Mount Ulriken around 2 miles south of the city centre, the stadium can hold more than 17,000 spectators, making it one of Norway’s biggest club football stadiums behind only Rosenborg’s Lerkendal and Vålerenga’s new stadium.
