Molde Fotballklubb is a football club from Molde, Norway, that currently plays in the Tippeligaen, the Norwegian top division. Founded on 19 June 1911, Molde was originally known as International. Molde are three-time league champions (2011, 2012, 2014) and four-time Norwegian Cup winners (1994, 2005, 2013, 2014), and have finished 2nd in the league a further seven times. Molde is one of only two Norwegian clubs to have participated in the UEFA Champions League.

Its home matches are played at Aker Stadion, which has a maximum capacity of 11,800. The stadium was inaugurated in 1998, and was a gift from the local businessmen Kjell Inge Røkke and Bjørn Rune Gjelsten. The club was formerly based at Molde stadion, which hosted the club's record attendance of 14,615. Molde's supporter club is called Tornekrattet ("Thorn bush", a reference to the city's nichname "The Town of Roses") and were started after the 1994 Cup Final victory.[1]

Until the beginning of the 1970s, the club mainly played in local lower division leagues, except for a short visit in the Hovedserien in the 1957–58 season. In 1974 Molde was back in the top division and finished second in the league, and have since then become one of Norway's leading clubs and generally stayed in the top division. Molde also finished second in the league in 1987, when the club lost the championship to Moss in the decisive match of the season.

During the 1990s and the beginning of the 2000s, Molde was the second best team in Norway (behind 13-times in a row champions 1995, 1998, 1999 and 2002 and cup championship in 1994 and 2005, and the participation in the Champions League in the 1999–2000 season, when Real Madrid, Porto and Olympiacos visited Molde.

The club was the first professional club of former Manchester United player Ole Gunnar Solskjær, and in January 2011 he returned to manage the club. In his first season as manager, which also was the club's centenary season, Molde won the league championship for the first time. The next season Solskjær and Molde retained the championship. Today the club has approximately 900 members and around 55 teams in three departments.[2]

History

Early years (1911–63)

Molde FK was founded on 19 June 1911 by a group gathered by Klaus Daae Andersen (born 30 September 1873); they named J. Ferdinand Dahl as the inaugural chairman.[3] On a general election 24 April 1912, it was decided that the club would be named "International",[4] perhaps because the opponents were primarily visitors from cruise ships or trading vessels,[5] or that it was to make room for the many Danes who worked on the engine factory Gideon.[4] The same year, on 5 August, the club played its first competitive match. The match away against Kristiansund ended 2–2.[4] The rising interest and activity in football in neighbouring towns caused the club to change its name to "Molde Fotballklubb" in 1915.[6]

The breakthrough (1964–77)

On 2 August 1964, Molde shocked nine-time Norwegian Cup champions and nine-time Norwegian League Champions Fredrikstad by eliminating them from the 1964 Norwegian Cup in the Third Round with a 3–2 win at home. Jan Fuglset, Torkild Brakstad, and Harry Hestad, amongst others, played at Molde at that period.[7] The club played in local lower leagues, except for a short visit to the top division in the 1957–58 season. In 1970, Molde was promoted to the second tier and played there for three seasons until its promotion to the First Division with a 5–1 win against Sogndal Fotball in Sogndal on 16 September 1973.[8]

In Viking lost against Strømsgodset. Both Molde and Viking won their last match, so Molde won the silver medals, one point behind Viking.[7]

Since then, Molde has generally stayed in the top division and has become one of the nations leading clubs. The club has produced a respectable number of national team players, and players who have gone professional in foreign leagues.

Ups and downs (1978–93)

Between 1978 and 1984, Molde did not play on the same level in two consecutive years. Molde was relegated from the First Division in every even-numbered year, and promoted to the First Division in every odd-numbered year, making it three consecutive promotions and relegations. In fact, Molde and Brann did not play at the same level these years, as Brann were promoted when Molde was relegated and the other way around.[9]

In 1982, Molde played in their first cup final, despite being relegated from the 1982 Norwegian First Division. They lost the final at Ullevaal Stadion 3–2 against Brann.[10]

The 1987 season was the closest Molde came to winning the league championship before winning it in 2011, when a draw at home against Moss would have ensured the title. Despite numerous opportunities, Moss won the game 2–0 at Molde stadium, thus winning the league championship, while Molde won their second silver-medals.[11] The attendance of 14,615 set the record at the old Molde stadion.

Molde played their second cup final in 1989. The first match against Viking ended in a 2–2 draw, and the subsequent replay was won 2–1 by Viking.[12]

When Molde again was relegated from Norwegian Premier League in 1993, the club was in major economic difficulties following a number of projects, the most notably of which was an extension of the main stand at Molde stadion.[13] The local businessmen Kjell Inge Røkke and Bjørn Rune Gjelsten started to invest in the club, and have since 1993 invested approximately NOK 500 million on old debts, new players and the new stadium.[14][15][16]

The silver generation (1994–2000)

Åge Hareide was the main coach of Molde in 1994, when they finished second in their Nils Arne Eggen called Molde's playing-style for "arse-football" (rævvafotball). Molde won their first title by defeating Lyn 3–2 at Ullevaal Stadium in Oslo.[17][18]

Current squad

Players and staff

Before moving to Aker Stadion in the beginning of the 1998 season, Molde had been playing their home games at Molde Idrettspark (at the time called Molde stadion, currently Molde Idrettspark), a municipal-owned multi-use venue,[54] since 1955. Molde Idrettspark was inaugurated on 28 August 1955, when Kristiansund was beaten by 1–0.[13] About 2,500 spectators attended the inaugural match.[13] The first top-tier league match was played here on 28 July 1957, when Molde managed a 1–1 draw against Sandefjord in the first round of 1957–58 Norwegian Main League.[13] When Molde earned a promotion to the 1974 Norwegian First Division, the main stand got expanded.[13] The unsurpassed record attendance at Molde Idrettspark is 14,615 in a match against Moss in 1987[55][56] Today Molde Idrettspark is used by Træff and Molde 2.

[49] Today the capacity of Aker Stadion is 11,800.[53] the stadium was converted to an all-seater, with seats being installed on the lower sections of the short end stands. This reduced the attendance capacity permanently, because the club chose to not remove the seats afterwards.1999–2000 UEFA Champions League group stage When Molde qualified for the [52] Molde's current stadium is the Aker Stadion, formerly known as "Molde Stadion", located at Reknes, by the seashore of central

Uwe Rösler, Molde manager 2010 
Ole Gunnar Solskjær, Molde manager 2011-2014 
Tor Ole Skullerud, Molde manager 2014–2015 

Ole Gunnar Solskjær signed for the Premier League side Cardiff City on January 2, 2014. Under new manager Tor Ole Skullerud Molde won their first domestic league and cup double in 2014, however Skullerud was fired in August 2015 due to a run of mediocre results and Solskjær (whose run at Cardiff lasted just nine months) was brought back to the team.

Although Molde could only finish Sixth behind champions Stromgodset in the 2013 Tippeligaen, they beat Rosenborg 4-2 on November 24 to take the Norwegian Football Cup for the third time in their history (the others were in 1994 and 2005).

Molde successfully defended their title in 2012 by beating Hønefoss 1–0, on 11 November, with one game remaining.

Prior to the club's 100-year anniversary, the former Molde and Manchester United player Brann.[48]

After only 20 points during the first 22 matches in the 2010 Tippeligaen, Kjell Jonevret was fired and replaced by Uwe Rösler.[42] With Rösler as the head coach, Molde collected 20 points in the last 8 matches and avoided relegation.[43] Despite the poor performance by the team, Baye Djiby Fall who spent the season on loan from Lokomotiv Moscow, became the first Molde-player since Jan Fuglset in 1976 to be the top goalscorer in Tippeligaen.[44]

Molde was again the second best team in Norway in 2009 after Rosenborg, who overtook Molde unbeaten record from 1998.[22] Conversely, Molde ruined Rosenborg's march for the double with a 5–0 win at Aker Stadion in the quarter-final of 2009 Norwegian Cup. In the final, Molde met their local rivals Aalesund, but Aalesund won the cup on penalty shoot-out.

After the promotion to Tippeligaen, Molde recorded a 5–1 win against Vålerenga on the last day of Moldejazz 2008,[39][40] as well as eliminating Brann from the cup with an impressive 8–0 win at home four days later.[41] Regardless of these strong results, Molde finished ninth in their comeback-season in the top flight.

In December 2006, Kjell Jonevret became head coach after Stavrum got fired, even though Ove Christensen was their first choice.[38] With Jonevret as coach, Molde won the 2007 First Division and was again promoted to Tippeligaen.

A new era (2007–present)

Following the Norwegian Cup champions, Molde played in the 2006-07 UEFA Cup. On 25 August 2006, they were drawn to face Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers in the UEFA Cup first round. They were knocked out 2–0 on aggregate after holding Rangers to a 0–0 draw at the Aker stadion.[36] The same year, Molde was relegated, after having been in the relegation zone for the last four seasons. The relegation became final after losing 8–0 against Stabæk at Nadderud, in the second last round of the season. Arild Stavrum was fired at the end of the season[37]

In 2005, Bosse Johansson was the main coach of Molde, and on 15 June 2005 Molde won 3–2 against Nybersund and qualified for the fourth round of the Norwegian Cup, having lost in the third round for three consecutive years.[33] Molde finished 12th in the league, and had to play relegation-playoff against Moss, which Molde won 5–2 on aggregate. Molde won their second Norwegian Cup title on 6 November 2005, when they won 4–2 after extra time against Lillestrøm in the final.[34] Bo Johansson left Molde after only one season in the club, and on Christmas Eve was Arild Stavrum announced as the new Molde-coach.[35]

In the first six matches of the 2003-season, Molde collected five points, and on 22 May 2003 Bengtsson got fired and was replaced by Odd Berg.[29][30] In the third round of 2003 Norwegian Cup Molde was eliminated by the second tier team Skeid,[31] Despite the change in the coaching staff, Molde was struggling in the relegation zone throughout the season, but after a 3–2 win away against Sogndal in the last match of the season, Molde avoided the relegation-playoffs.[32] In 2004, the team led by Reidar Vågnes, former assistant coach under Erik Brakstad, but Molde only managed 11th place, four points clear of relegation.

On 6 November 2000, after the sacking of Erik Brakstad, Gunder Bengtsson was announced head coach for two years.[26] After one season, Bengtsson and his assistant Kalle Björklund was signed for three more years.[27] In 2002, Gunder Bengtsson led Molde to second place in the league, but like when he won the league with Vålerenga in 1983 and 1984, there weren't much enthusiasm around the club's sixth silver medals, because of the defensive tactics and lack of local players.[28]

From "Gunder method" to relegation (2001–2006)

In 1999, Molde has a successful season, finishing second in the league and reaching the semifinal of the 1999 Norwegian Cup, where they were eliminated by Brann. They participated in the Champions League, in which Molde was drawn against CSKA Moscow in the second qualifying round of 1999–2000 UEFA Champions League. In the first match in Moscow, Molde lost 2–0. In the second leg, a 19-year-old Magne Hoseth had his big break-through with two goals when CSKA Moscow was beaten 4–0[23] and qualified for the third qualifying round where they met Mallorca. The first leg against Mallorca ended 0–0 at home, and Andreas Lund became the big hero when he equalized on a penalty and with 1–1 aggregate Molde qualified for the group stage on away goals,[21] and Molde became the team from the smallest city to have qualified for the group stage of Champions League until Unirea Urziceni repeated the feat in 2009–10.[24] In the group stage, Molde was drawn against Real Madrid, Porto and Olympiacos, and with one win and five losses, Molde finished last in their group. On the occasion of Molde's 100-year anniversary in 2011, the readers of the local newspaper Romsdals Budstikke voted 1999 as the best year in the history of the club.[25]

In 1998, Molde played the first 21 matches without losing, which was a Norwegian record until Rosenborg managed 26 matches without losing in 2009.[22] In the 22nd round, Molde lost against Mini Jakobsen said: "It was fun as long as you managed to keep up. Thank you for helping to create tension in the Premier League!" On 26 September 1998, Rosenborg won 2–0 against Molde in the 23rd round and won the championship, while Molde had to settle with silver.

Solskjær scored thirty-one goals in forty-two matches for Molde and was sold to Norway, Örgryte, and Viking.
