Molde won the title after defeating Odd 2–0 in the final. The achievement made Molde the first club to win back-to-back Norwegian Cup titles since Lillestrøm defended their title in 1978. The victory would have earned Molde a place in the second qualifying round of the 2015–16 UEFA Europa League, but since the club already had qualified to the 2015–16 UEFA Champions League as winners of the 2014 Tippeligaen, this berth was passed down to Strømsgodset, fourth-place fininshers in the league.
