Magne Hoseth (born Magne Hoset on 13 October 1980) is a Norwegian former footballer who played for Averøykameratene, Molde (two times), Copenhagen, Viking, Aalesund, Stabæk, Notodden and Kristiansund. From his debut in 2001, he has played 22 matches for the Norway national football team. He won a total of 6 trophies, featuring 4 Tippeligaen titles, one Norwegian Football Cup title and one Royal League title.
In his first season for the club from Romsdal he performed well both in the Tippeligaen and in the Champions League. His breakthrough came when he came in as a substitute and scored two goals against CSKA Moscow in the 2nd qualifiyng round 1999-00 UEFA Champions League, second leg. He was also a regular in the Norwegian youth national team.
In the summer of 2004 Hoseth was transferred to the Danish team F.C. Copenhagen. He was very popular in Copenhagen, and was named 2004 player of the year at the club, despite playing only four months that calender year. Because of his homesickness he wanted to go back to Norway and left the club in 2005.
Second spell at Molde
In July 2006 he returned to his old club Molde. Despite the team was relegated to 1. divisjon, Hoseth chose to stay in Molde. He became Tippeligaen champion in 2011, 2012 and 2014. He won the Norwegian Football Cup in 2013 after scoring defining goals both in the semifinal and later the final against Molde's main rivals Rosenborg. Hoseth made 364 appearances for Molde, the second-highest number of appearances by any player for the club.
After short stays with Viking and Aalesund through the 2015 season, Hoseth signed a 2-year contract with 2. divisjon side Notodden before 2016. On 16 August 2017 he signed a contract with Kristiansund BK. In the club's first ever season in the top flight, Hoseth helped them stay up and finish seventh on the Eliteserien table. On 10 January Hoseth announced his retirement on Twitter. 
Hoseth made his debut for Norway on 25 April 2001, as a half-time substitute for Dan Eggen in a 2-1 home friendly win over Bulgaria. His only goal came on his 5th cap, on 24 January 2004, in a 3-1 win over Honduras in Hong Kong. His 22nd and last cap was on 25 September 2009, a 1-1 draw with Iceland in World Cup qualification.
