General history 
It was found 15 January 1894, and is one of Norway's oldest association football clubs. It is often known as Fram Larvik, mainly to distinguish it from IL Fram from Skatval.
The men's football team currently plays in the Norwegian Second Division, the third tier of the Norwegian football league system.
It played in the Second Division to 1995, but was down to the Fourth Division for a period after relegation in the 1999 Norwegian Third Division campaign. After that, the team was remade to Larvik Fotball, which won several promotions and resided in the Second Division for some years. The cooperation club Larvik Fotball ceased to exist in late 2004, and the 2005 Norwegian Second Division was played as IF Fram, but with abysmal results. After a few seasons back in the Third Division, however, Fram won the league in 2008 and the subsequent playoffs, and has played in the Second Division since.
