History

Lillestrøm S.K. was founded on 2 April 1917. It has been Norwegian Elite League champions five times, most recently in 1989, and also in 1986, 1977, 1976, and 1959. Additionally, they have won the Norwegian Cup in 1985, 1981, 1978, 1977 and 2007.[2]


When Arne Erlandsen left for Sweden and IFK Göteborg after the 2004-season, former LSK player and German international Uwe Rösler took over as head coach of the team. His first season in charge became a successful one, with Lillestrøm finishing fourth in the league. This position secured LSK a place in the Royal League. The team also made it to the Norwegian Cup final, but surprisingly lost 4–2 to Molde FK in front of a crowd of 25,000 at Ullevaal stadium.
