FK Vidar is an association football club from Stavanger, Norway. They currently play in the Norwegian Second Division, the third highest level in the Norwegian football league system.

Club history[edit]

The club was founded on 18 April 1906.[2] FK Vidar played their first match against Stavanger IF on 15 August 1906. They lost 1-0. They became members of the Norwegian Football Association in 1909, and won their first league title in 1912 when the junior team became district champions of Rogaland.

The club has spent most of its time between the third and fourth tiers in Norway and from 1952 to 1962 they found themselves languishing in the regional leagues. It was not until the 1980s that Vidar began to develop into one of the better teams in Stavanger. They established themselves as one of the top teams at the Norwegian second tier (named Division 2 at that time, now known as Adeccoligaen), only just failing to achieve promotion in 1984 and 1986 and finishing among the top four a total of five times. They competed directly against their city rivals Viking FK, finishing ahead of them in the 1987 Second Division, establishing themselves as the top team in Stavanger.

1989 saw the beginning of the decline. FK Vidar were relegated to the third tier, and in 2004 they were relegated again to the fourth tier (Third Division) where they remained for many years. In 2009 Vidar won a playoff to win re-promotion to the 2010 Norwegian Second Division.

Their ground is Lassa Idrettspark which has a capacity of around 5000. The club's colours are red, the home kit is red with white stripes and the away kit is black with white stripes.
