The Norwegian Football Cup 2008 was the 103rd season of Norwegian annual knockout football tournament. The competition started on 10 May 2008 with the first round games and ended on 9 November 2008 with the final. The defending champions were Lillestrøm.

The format of the Cup has not changed for this season what means that, unlike other European cup competitions, all teams (including Tippeligaen ones) entered the Cup in the First Round. In the First and Second Round amateur teams (or at least lower-placed at the time of the draw) were seeded and played the matches at home ground. From the Third Round until the end the draw was random.

The winners, Vålerenga, qualified for the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League 2009–10.
