FK Arendal is a defunct Norwegian football club from Arendal which existed from 2000 to 2008. At its peak it played in the third tier of the Norwegian league system. After its bankruptcy, a new, unrelated club called Arendal Fotball was started.

History[edit]

FK Arendal was founded in 2000 as an umbrella team for the local clubs Arendal BK, FK Favør, IK Grane, Rygene IL, IL Sørfjell, IF Trauma, Øyestad IF and Hisøy IL. FK Arendal replaced Øyestad in the league system from the 2001 season. All the founding clubs still exist, however, and play in the league system - although Favør only has a women's section.

FK Arendal won promotion to the Second Division following a victorious 2003 season. Although relegated after one season, it was promoted back up for the 2007 season. The club was again relegated after only one season.

In 2008 it went bankrupt, and ceased to exist.
