Asker Fotball is the football department of Norwegian sports club Asker SK from Asker.

The women's football team is one of the most successful clubs ever in Norway, with 6 Premier League championships and 5 cup championships. Due to financial difficulties at the end of 2008 the team's licence to play in the Toppserien was revoked, and the team members then joined Stabæk IF's football group, Stabæk Fotball, which set up a new women's team. NFF gave Asker's place in the Toppserien to Stabæk Fotball. Asker's second team became Asker's first team, playing in the Norwegian Second Division, and they now have a recruiting arrangement with Stabæk Fotball.

The men currently play in the Norwegian Second Division (tier three).

History[edit]

Best achievements[edit]

The men's division played in the Norwegian Premier League between 1951 and 1959. In 1951 they became runners-up in the Norwegian cup.

The women's team won all its Premier League matches in the 1998 season.[citation needed] The men's division did the same thing in 2005, though in the Third Division.[citation needed]

Match fixing allegations[edit]

On 13 July 2012, four players – one of them from Asker – were arrested by police due to match fixing allegations in games involving Aker and Follo FK.[1] Asker's 7–1 loss over Frigg was deemed suspicious because of the odd score line and high bettings placed on the game.[2]
