OverviewEdit

League expansionEdit

This was the first top division seasons where 16 teams were competing on the highest level of Norwegian football since the 1961–62 Hovedserien season. Due to the league expanding from 14 to 16 teams,[3] three teams were promoted from the 1. divisjon at the end of the 2008 season. Those teams were champions Odd Grenland, runners-up Sandefjord and third-placed Start. The last spot was taken by Aalesund after winning a two-legged play-off match against Sogndal.

SummaryEdit

Stabæk was the defending champions, having won their first ever League Championship in 2008. On 27 September, Rosenborg secured the title with four rounds left to go.[4] They won their 21st top-flight title.
