The 2012 Tippeligaen season was the 68th season of top-tier football in Norway. The competition began on 23 March 2012 and ended on 18 November 2012, with a summer break from 28 May to 30 June.[2] The defending champions are Molde.[3]

At the end of the season, the two teams who were placed last (Fredrikstad and Stabæk) were relegated to the 2013 First Division and were replaced with Start and Sarpsborg 08 for the 2013 Tippeligaen. The team that finished third last, Sandnes Ulf, played a two-legged match against a challenger from Adeccoligaen, Ullensaker/Kisa. Sandnes Ulf won the play-off (0-4 in Ullensaker and 3-1 in Sandnes), and were not relegated.

Season summary[edit]

Strømsgodset were leading the league most of the season, but four matches before the end of the season there were three teams competing for the title. Rosenborg lost out on the title-race after losing to Strømsgodset and Molde.[4] Molde secured the title in the 29th round after they won 1–0 at home, while Strømsgodset lost 2–1 against Sandnes Ulf.

Stabæk were relegated after being positioned at the bottom of the table throughout the season. Ahead of the last round, four teams were fighting against relegation, but Fredrikstad lost their match against the league-winners Molde and were relegated, while Sandnes Ulf played promotion play-off against Ullensaker/Kisa.

The average attendance in 2012 were 7,014 spectators, down from 7,995 in 2011, which was the lowest average attendance in Tippeligaen since 2003.[5]

Relegation and promotion to 2013 season[edit]

At the end of the season, Stabæk and Fredrikstad were relegated directly to Adeccoligaen, and will be replaced by Start and Sarpsborg who were directly promoted.

Five teams entered a play-off for the last Tippeligaen spot in the 2013 season. These were:

  • A) Sandnes Ulf (by virtue of being the 14th placed team in the Tippeligaen)
  • B) Sandefjord (by virtue of being the third placed team in the Adeccoligaen)
  • C) Mjøndalen (by virtue of being the fourth placed team in the Adeccoligaen)
  • D) Bodø/Glimt (by virtue of being the fifth placed team in the Adeccoligaen)
  • E) Ullensaker/Kisa (by virtue of being the sixth placed team in the Adeccoligaen)

The four Adeccoligaen teams first played a single game knockout tournament, with the winner (Ull/Kisa) advancing to a two-legged tie against the Tippeligaen team (Sandnes Ulf) for the 16th and final spot in the 2013 season. Sandnes Ulf retained their Tippeligaen spot with an aggregate 7-1 win over Ull/Kisa.
