Kjetil Løvvik (born 16 October 1972) is a retired Norwegian footballer.

He played for Skjold IL, SK Nord and FK Haugesund in his early career,[1] before being sold to SK Brann in 1996. He was loaned out to Vålerenga for a period before making a breakthrough in Brann, and was sold in July 1999 to Grasshopper Club Zürich. His seldom played first-team football there,[1] and was loaned out to FK Lyn. In the seasons 2000, 2001 and 2002 he played 65 league games and scored 13 goals.[1]

Around late 2002/early 2003, Løvvik invested 1,000,000 kr together with football agent Terje Simonsen to form a new club in Stord, called Stord/Moster FK.[2] In February 2003 Løvvik decided to cease his professional career to play for Stord/Moster in addition to owning the club.[3] He lived in Oslo, but flew to Stord to play matches and became a prolific goalscorer.[4] In 2004, he played less,[5] and he retired after the season.[6] By late 2005 his (and Simonsen's) involvement in Stord/Moster was over.[7]
