Norwegian league 2017 odds
Eliteserien will be the new name of the premiere league in Norway from 2017. The brand was unveiled by Leif Øverland, CEO of Norsk Toppfotball (Norwegian Professional Football League - NPFL) during a press conference in August 2016. Since 2014 the Football Association of Norway together with Norsk Toppfotball and the clubs have been working on the new branding for the premiere league. It has been important to find a profile that unites Norwegian elite football through passion and community. Scandinavian Design Group have developed the new visual profile and the overall brand architecture. The lion will be central as a symbol of our league. The inspiration for the lion is from the Norwegian coat of arms. This is a link from the crest on the national team and binds Norwegian elite football together.
As the name Eliteserien itself communicates, this is the league for the 16 best teams in Norway. Eliteserien is where the best players in Norway compete for the title. The name in new, but well known, says, CEO of club SK Brann, Vibeke Johannesen.
In 2017 the Eliteserien starts on Saturday April 1 and ends with finals in the Cup Sunday 3 December. Season extended the fall to harmonize season something with nations Norway compete in UEFA club competitions. It also discussed implementation of the Supercup prior to the start of next year. NFF will, in dialogue with the licensee, come back to time and place for this.
Kristiansund BK has had a progress unparalleled in Norwegian football. Every year since 2013 has outperformed the previous year according to the final results: ’’Some have done it faster than us, but not improvement over such a long time. We hope it has skat a good foundation for us. After promotion to the top level became clear, we have not thought about much in 2017, but a great deal on what comes next. The club will be well equipped either we keep the space next year or not’’ says Helland.
The favorite of the 2017 season is Rosenborg. Winning the championship in last 2 years, lost in the break between 2016 and 2017’s season only 2 players: Pavel Londak and Elbasan Rashani (loaned from Brøndby). Also with chances for the title is the team of SK Brann, a team of which most important new player for the upcoming season is Costa Rica’s Mynora Esco. The 25-year-old come from the same club that Deyver Vega (23) came to Brann last season - Deportivo Saprissa.
Odds BK is also looking to break Rosenborg’s winning championships streak and in order to do that they brought in the off season one players from Norway’s champion: Riku Riski. Another arrivals at the team managed by Dag-Eilev Fagermo are Stefan Mladenovic (from Pors Grenland) and Ole Jörgen Halvorsen (from FK Bodø/Glimt).
Interesting moves about transfers has made Molde FK, a team that even getting use with the presence in the Europe League qualifying rounds, last season did not catch the podium and the place for European competitions, finishing 4th. But this fact looks to motivate Molde’s owners as their new arrivals for 2017’s season include players from teams such as FC København (Christoffer Remmer), IF Elfsborg (Thomas Bendiksen) and Wolverhampton Wanderers (Björn Sigurðarson).
