The 1989 season of the Norwegian First Division (1. divisjon) began on April 30, 1989, and ended on 8 October 1989.

22 games were played with 3 points given for wins and 1 for draws. Number eleven and twelve were relegated. The winners of the two groups of the Second Division were promoted, as well as the winner of a series of play-off matches between the two second placed teams in the two groups of the Second Division and number ten in the First Division.

This was the last season the top flight of Norwegian football would be called the First Division. The following year, the league changed its name to Tippeligaen, from its sponsor, Norsk Tipping.[2]
