The Playoffs to the 1. divisjon in Norwegian association football took place from 1996 up to and including the 2000 season.

The playoffs were instituted because of the streamlining of the 1. divisjon ahead of the 1997 season. It was reduced from two groups to one, and thus, not all winners of the 2. divisjon groups could be promoted.

From the 2001 season, the 2. divisjon got four groups instead of eight, meaning that each of the four group winners was promoted.
