Since 1978, an official cup for women's clubs has also been played. The Norwegian Women's Cup final is usually played on a Saturday, the day before the men's cup final. The 1978 cup final between BUL and Trondheims-Ørn was the only Norwegian cup final to be decided on penaltiy kicks.
Before the 2006 final, the Norwegian Football Association decided that the Women's final would be played at Bislett Stadion instead of Ullevaal Stadion, which caused some debate. The Football Association claimed that two matches over one weekend would cause too much wear on the Ullevaal pitch, while representatives for the clubs claimed that the move was discriminating against women's football. When the semi-finals of the 2006 cup were drawn, all 4 clubs boycotted the draw in a protest against the move.
