Norwegian Eliteserien Stats Now on FBref

Posted by Alex Bonilla on April 11, 2019

One of our newest additions to domestic men's league coverage on FBref is the tracking of Norway's Eliteserien. The league's 2019 season has just kicked off, and we also have historical data for the league back to its 2000 season, when the league was called Tippeligaen.

In the German Bundesliga, Hertha BSC currently boasts a pair of Norwegian veterans, Rune Jarstein at goalkeeper and Per Ciljan Skjelbred at midfield. With this league addition, you can take a look at Jarstein's rise through the Eliteserien ranks with Odd, Rosenborg and Viking, as well as Skjelbred's 4 championship seasons with Rosenborg. Other players that get their earlier careers filled out include Mohamed Elyounoussi, currently with Premier League side Southampton after coming up in the Tippeligaen with Sarpsborg 08 and Molde, and LA Galaxy's Jørgen Skjelvik, who went to MLS after 3 consecutive championships with Rosenborg.
