2009

The 2008 Tippeligaen season began on 29 March and ended 2 November.[4] Brann were the defending champions, having won their third Tippeligaen championship in 2007. The teams promoted from the First Division at the end of the previous season were champions Molde, automatic qualifiers HamKam, and play-off winners Bodø/Glimt.

Stabæk secured their first ever league championship by defeating Vålerenga 6–2 in the penultimate round. From the 2009 season onwards, the number of teams in the Tippeligaen was expanded from fourteen to sixteen.[5] To accommodate this expansion, only one team faced automatic relegation to the First Division, as opposed to the regular two, while the three best teams in the First Division were awarded automatic promotion. As in previous years, there was a two-legged playoff at the end of the season, this time between the thirteenth-placed team in the Tippeligaen and the fourth best team in the First Division.
