Eliteserien league format
Seeing that there are 16 clubs in the Norwegian elite division as of the 2019, with each and every team playing 30 games during the season (home and away). Eliteserien games are usually played on Sunday and it has to be noted that there are 240 matches in total in a season.
May 16 is considered the national day of football and, as a result, this is the most anticipated round of the season. During that period of the season all stadiums are packed as this round precedes a national holiday – Norway’s Constitution Day.
Similar to other leagues, teams pick up three points for a victory and one point for a draw. As always, points are not awarded for a defeat. Eliteserien clubs are ranked by total number of points, then goal difference, goals scored and eventually H2H records, which separate teams who are level on points in the standings.
The club with the most points wins the Eliteserien trophy at the end of each season, with the two rock-bottom sides being automatically relegated to the Norwegian second tier (1. divisjon). On the other hand, the two top clubs from the 1. divisjon secure promotion to the Eliteserien. The fourteenth-placed team in the Norwegian top flight takes part in the play-offs, meeting the third-placed side from the 1. divisjon in the two-legged tie.
Speaking of participation in European competitions, Eliteserien champions take part in the qualifiers for the Champions League (round 2), whilst both second-placed and third-placed clubs make it to the Europa League second qualifying round.
