Hasle-Løren Idrettslag is a Norwegian sports club from the neighborhoods Hasle and Løren in Oslo. It was founded in 1911, and has sections for association football, ice hockey, skiing and cycling.

Ice hockey[edit]

Some of its greatest success was achieved by the ice hockey team. The team plays its home games in Lørenhallen, which holds 1,000 spectators. As of 2007, it is in the 1. divisjon - the second highest Norwegian ice hockey competition.

The club has a rich history in Norwegian Ice Hockey. It was the Norway champion in 1972, 1974, 1976. It won the 1. divisjon league in the 1971/72, 1972/73 and 1974/75 seasons.

The 1. divisjon (1st division) league won by Hasle/Løren was the highest league in Norway at the time. It was reorganized and named Eliteserien (The Elite League) in 1990. That name was held until 2004 when cable TV company UPC became main sponsor. UPC Norway changed its name to GET in 2006 and hence the name of the league was also altered to GET-ligaen.

Football[edit]

The men's football team won promotion to the Norwegian Second Division, the third highest tier, in 2010 after winning the league and playoffs. In the 2011 Norwegian Second Division campaign, Hasle-Løren was relegated. A famous former coach is Egil Olsen.

From the 2000 season it formed a cooperation with neighboring clubs Årvoll IL and Linderud IL to field an umbrella team named Bjerkealliansen on junior level (age 19 and below).[1] In 2008 Hasle-Løren broke out of the alliance.[2]
