The Playoffs to the Norwegian First Division in association football took place from 1996 up to and including the 2000 season.

The playoffs were instituted because of the streamlining of the First Division ahead of the 1997 season. It was reduced from two groups to one, and thus, not all winners of the Second Division groups could be promoted.

From the 2001 season, the Second Division got four groups instead of eight, meaning that each of the four group winners was promoted.
