History[edit]

The club was founded on 25 September 1911 as Strømmen FK. The name was changed to FK Norrøna in 1914. In 1923 the club merged with Strømmen IL and took the name IL Norrøna. In 1935 it incorporated the club Strømmen BK, founded in the 1920s, and reverted its name back to Strømmen FK. On 27 June 1945, the club merged with AIF club Strømmen AIL, founded 1928, and got its current name.[2][3]

Football[edit]

The club reached the Norwegian Football Cup semi-final in 1957, and played in the Norwegian Premier League from 1949 to 1955 and from 1956 to 1961, as well as in 1986 and 1988. The club hosts the record for lowest attendance in the highest league, 202. They play their matches at Strømmen Stadion.

In 2006, Strømmen won their Third Division group. In the qualification match for the Second Division they met Ullern. Strømmen won the first leg, 6–2, on home ground, and the lost the second leg, 4–2, but won 8–6 on aggregate, and achieved their promotion for the 2007 season. Strømmen got relegated in 2007, but retained their spot since Odd Grenland 2 got demoted to the Third Division, following Odd's first team being relegated from the Premier League. Thomas Berntsen was hired by Strømmen on 3 August 2008,[4] and with Berntsen as head coach, Strømmen avoided relegation to the Third Division. Ahead of the 2009-season, Petter Myhre was named co-coach together with Berntsen.[5] With Berntsen and Myhre as coaches, Strømmen won their 2009 Norwegian Second Division group and was promoted to Adeccoligaen. In 2010 Strømmen finished three points behind the play-off promotion. In the decisive match of the 2011-season, Strømmen avoided relegation with a 6-1 win against Nybergsund.[6] After the 2011-season, Berntsen was replaced by Erland Johnsen.[7]
