The 2011 Norwegian Football Cup Final was the 106th final of the Norwegian Football Cup. It was played on 6 November 2011[1] at Ullevaal Stadion, in Oslo, Norway. In the final Brann meet Aalesund. The winner, Aalesund, earned a place in the second qualifying round of the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League. The draw for the final was held on 27 September 2011 by the Norwegian Football Association, which decided that Brann was the home team of the final and got to play in their red home kits.[2] UEFA-president Michel Platini came to Oslo and watched the final.[3]


Up to the 2011 final, Brann had reached the Cup Final fourteen times, winning six of them, while Aalesund had won the only Final they played in 2009. The first league match of the Tippeliga-season, ended 1-1 at Brann Stadion. The second league match will be played after the Final. In the last ten years, Brann and Aalesund had been drawn together in the Norwegian Cup twice, each winning one tie; in the Fifth Round in 2002, Aalesund, who played on the second-tier that year, won the penalty shootout 6-5 after 120 minutes with 0–0 at Brann Stadion; Aalesund went on to reach the semi-final. Their next meeting was 3 years later, in the Fourth Round of the 2005 competition; Brann won the match 3-2 but were eliminated in the quarter-final.



Hamar-based referee Svein-Erik Edvartsen was named as the referee for the 2011 Cup Final on 10 October 2011. Edvartsen states that this will be his biggest experience as a referee. Edvartsen has no previous assignments as the primary referee at Ullevaal Stadion, but have been a FIFA-elected referee between 2007 and 2008 and have since 2005 refereed 95 Tippeliga-matches.[4]

His assistants for the 2011 final was Odd-Jarle Hansen, representing Fløy, Magnus Lundberg from Ringsaker, with Brevik Fotball's Anders Johansen as the fourth official.[4]
