2017 Faroe Islands Premier League

The Faroe Islands Premier League is the top level of football in the Faroe Islands. It was founded in 2005, replacing 1. deild and it is organised by the Faroe Islands Football Association. The league is now called Effodeildin.[1] From February 2009 to December 2011 was known as Vodafonedeildin[2] and Formuladeildin from 2005 to 2008 in sponsoring context. The league will be called Effodeildin until 2017.[3]

All teams in the league have semi-professional status.

It currently has 10 participating clubs. At the end of each season, two teams are relegated and two promoted from 1. deild

History[edit]

The league was founded in 1942[4], although clubs did not take part in European competition until 1992.[citation needed]

In 2003 HB Tórshavn won the league and equalled KÍ Klaksvík's record of 17 titles; a year later HB bettered that and won the title for the 18th time. In 2005 1. deild was renamed Formuladeildin for sponsorship reasons. 2. deild adopted the name of 1. deild, the 3rd and 4th tier were named 2. deild and 3. deild. Then 5 years later in 2009, a 3-year deal was agreed with Vodafone and the name was changed again to Vodafonedeildin.[citation needed]

In February 2012 the name was changed to Effodeildin, a 3-year deal was agreed with the Faroese petrol company Effo,[5] which was previously called Statoil and Esso. The league renewed with Effo and will be called Effodeildin until 2017.[3]
