Team changes from the previous season[edit]

AB Argir and VB Vágur were relegated to 1. deild after finishing 9th and 10th in the 2007 season. They were replaced by 1. deild champions B68 Toftir and runners-up ÍF Fuglafjørður.

Further, GÍ Gøta merged with 1. deild club Leirvík ÍF and therefore formed the club named Víkingur Gøta.[1]
