The football and bandy teams of the two clubs had cooperated long before the actual merger.
The men's bandy team plays in the First Division, the second tier. It played in the Premier League as late as in 2005–06.
The men's football team played in the Third Division, the fourth tier of Norwegian football, until 2010, when they pulled their team because of a lack of players. Its best known player was Andreas Hauger, who played for the team in 2009. The best known female footballer is Siri Nordby, who started her career there.
