Norway’s most successful club are based in Trondheim.
With a record 24 league titles, eleven Norwegian Cup titles and with more UEFA matches played than any other Norwegian team, Rosenborg are without a doubt Norway’s most successful club. A run of 13 consecutive titles with regular appearances in European competition during the 1990s and early 2000s ensured they are also Norway’s most well-known club. Their biggest Champions League win was 7–1 against Astana in the 2007–08 tournament, while their best run was to the quarter finals of the 1996-97 tournament, where they eventually lost out to Juventus despite earning a credible 1-1 draw in Trondheim.
Rosenborg play their home games at the Lerkendal Stadion in Trondheim, which at a 21,405 all-seater capacity is the biggest club stadium in Norway. The ground received international recognition in 2016 as it played host to the European Super Cup between Real Madrid and Sevilla. In seasons when Rosenborg are challenging for titles, tickets can be difficult to get in the better areas of the ground. Tickets for home games should be bought in advance via the club website / Ticketmaster.
Founded as Odd in 1917, Rosenborg are currently celebrating their centenary year. It hasn’t always been a success though, and the club weren’t even considered the best in Trondheim until the 1960s. Read the full history.
