Drøbak-Frogn IL, DFI, is a Norwegian sports club from Drøbak. It has sections for association football, badminton, basketball, table tennis, floorball, team handball, orienteering, gymnastics, cycling, alpine skiing and Nordic skiing.

It can trace its roots back to the club Drøbak IF, founded in 1918. In 1946 it was merged to form Drøbak-Frogn IL, together with Drøbak BK (founded 1920) and Frogn IL (founded 1934).[2]

In 1992 the club played in the promotion play-offs, beating Strømmen IF 2-0 at home, but losing 1-2 away to Hamarkameratene in the decisive match. Drøbak/Frogn finished third in the Norwegian First Division in 1994 and 1995, and fourth in 1993 and 1996. The team was relegated from the second tierin 1997, and has since played at the third and fourth tiers of Norwegian football.
