Ullensaker/Kisa IL is a Norwegian sports club from Jessheim in Ullensaker. Founded in 1894, it has sections for association football, team handball and athletics.

General history[edit]

The club was founded on 15 December 1894.[2] After the Second World War it incorporated the AIF club Ullensaker AIL, founded 1932.[3]

Ull/Kisa plays with a yellow shirt and green shorts. In football, this is completed with yellow stockings.

Athletics[edit]

The club has had some Norwegian champions, mostly within running events. An early medal winner was Svein Skolt, who took a national bronze medal in the steeplechase in 1951.[4] A few years later, Berit Dønnum took a double 800 metres title in 1962 and 1963.[5] Tove Dønnum took three straight high jump titles in 1961, 1962 and 1963—and Anne-Mette Olsen took a bronze in 1972.[6]

Thomas Roth became 800 metres champion in 2010 and took the bronze in 2009.[7] Roth also competed in the 2011 European Indoor Championships.[8] Tor-Erik Nyquist took three marathon silvers in 1995, 1996 and 1997 and a half marathon silver in 1999.[9][10]

Pål Berntzen became javelin champion in 1992.[11] The decathlete Jo Henning Hals-Nilssen took a national bronze in 1992.[12] The decathlete Tom Erik Olsen won a national silver medal in the hurdles in 1995. He later won several national titles for other clubs.[13] Inger Birgitte Reppe took a hurdles bronze in 1988.[14] Else Opsahl, Astrid Willersrud and Ragnhild Sundby won medals in shot put in the 1960s, and Runa Nordahl won a javelin bronze in 1975.[15][16][17]

Football[edit]

The men's football team currently plays in Adeccoligaen. They played in Norwegian Second Division from 1999, and their long-term goal was to win promotion to Adeccoligaen, which they achieved in 2011.

Its stadium, Jessheim stadion, is quite dilapidated. Therefore, the club is planning a new stadium that will take between 1000-5000 spectators.

In May 2009 Ull/Kisa performed well in the Norwegian Football Cup 2009, upsetting Sandefjord Fotball 1-0 in the second round. The goal was scored by Mats Jarnbjo in the 61st minute. In the third Vålerenga Fotball was too strong, as Ull/Kisa lost 3-5 at Ullevaal Stadion. Eirik Soltvedt scored all the goals of Ull/Kisa.

In the middle of the 2010 season Arne Erlandsen was appointet by Ull/Kisa as their new coach. He saved the club from relegation to Norwegian Third Division this autumn, and decided to sign for another year. 2011 was a remarkable year for both Arne Erlandsen and Ull/Kisa. The Jessheim-club promoted to Adeccoligaen for the first time in history. October 16, 2011 Ull/Kisa won 4-1 against Tiller IL, when Lørenskog IF at the same time played a 3-3 draw against KFUM Oslo, which meant that Ull/Kisa was five points ahead, with only one match left to play. The match against Tiller IL was the last game the club played at Jessheim Stadion.
