Idrettslaget Norborg is a Norwegian sports club based in the villages of Grytastranda, Søvik and Gamlem in Ålesund municipality, Sunnmøre. It was founded on Sunday 21 January 1962, and takes its name from the former municipality of Borgund; Norborg after Nordre Borgund.

IL Norborg

Their activities include football, badminton and gymnastics. They also previously had sections for volleyball and handball (merged with Brattvåg IL – handball to form Haram Handballklubb on 16 March 1989).

Football is by far the main activity with around 200 active members. The A Team joined the league system in 1968 and played the 2016 season in the 4. divisjon.

The team has orange shirts and socks, and black shorts. They play their home games at the Uggedal stadion on grass (opened 5 June 2005). In winter 2008, they decided to open an artificial turf pitch on the gravel track at Uggedalen. This work started on 12 June 2009 and was finished in October 2009, with the pitch officially opened on 31 October with a match between the villages of Grytastranda and Søvik.

In the 2014 season, Norborg achieved their best ever finish of 13th in the 3rd division.[1] They also achieved 9th and 10th place finishes in the 3rd division in 2009 and 2010, but at that time, the 3rd division had twice as many teams. In 2014, they were also ranked as the tenth best team in Sunnmøre.[2]

On 27 November 2014, the club announced Stig Jacob Johansen as the new head coach.[3]
