The 2005 Norwegian First Division season kicked off on 10 April 2005, and the final round was played on 30 October 2005.

Stabæk were promoted to the 2006 Tippeligaen as First Division winners, along with Sandefjord who finished second. Sandefjord will be playing in the top division for the first time while Stabæk return to Premier League after being relegated in 2004.

As in previous years, there was a two-legged promotion playoff at the end of the season, between the third-placed team in the First Division (Moss) and the twelfth-placed team in the Premier League (Molde). Molde kept their spot in the Premier League, after beating Moss 5-2 on aggregate.

Mandalskameratene, Skeid, Tønsberg and Alta were relegated to the 2006 Second Division at the end of the season.

Team changes from 2004[edit]

2004 First Division champions Start and runners-up Aalesund were promoted to the 2005 Tippeligaen. They were replaced by Stabæk and Sogndal, who finished 13th and 14th respectively in the 2004 Tippeligaen season.

Four teams, Raufoss, Haugesund, Vard Haugesund and Tromsdalen, were relegated to the 2005 Second Division following the 2004-season. They were replaced by 2004 Second Division winners Tønsberg, Follo, Løv-Ham and Alta.
