This is a list of foreign players in the top flight of Norwegian football, currently known as Eliteserien, which commenced play in 1937. The following players must meet both of the following two criteria:

  1. Have played at least one Premier League game. Players who were signed by Premier League clubs, but only played in lower league, cup and/or European games, or did not play in any competitive games at all, are not included.
  2. Are considered foreign, determined by the following:
A player is considered foreign if he is not eligible to play for Norway national football team, more specifically:
  • If a player has been capped on international level, the national team is used; if he has been capped by more than one country, the highest level (or the most recent) team is used.
  • If a player has not been capped on international level, his country of birth is used, except those who were born abroad from Norwegian parents or moved to Norway at a young age, and those who clearly indicated to have switched his nationality to another nation.
