Gjøvik Fotballforening is a Norwegian football club from Gjøvik, founded in 2008. It currently plays in the Second Division, the third tier of Norwegian football.

History[edit]

The club was established on 8 October 2008 as a merger of the senior teams of SK Gjøvik-Lyn and Vardal IF.[2] The clubs Vind and Redalen were asked to join, but declined.[3] In May 2009 it faced Rosenborg in the Norwegian football cup, losing 0–4 in front of a 5,000 attendance.[4] In 2010 it won its Third Division group, but lost out in a promotion playoff against Elverum. Gjøvik won their Third Division in 2011 and was promoted to the Second Division.
