Odd Grenland is a Norwegian football club from the town of Skien. is a city and municipality in the county of Telemark, Norway and administrative centre of Telemark County Odd spent their first few years playing against other local teams before attempting to join the regional series in 1920. As with most of the "buddy" clubs formed at the time, they were repeatedly denied access. Since many of these players also played for the bigger teams, the authorities feared a possible shortage of players if too many small clubs were let in. As the years went by, disillusioned players began leaving the club, and in 1923 the first team played only a single match.
By 1926, management of the club had passed on to a new generation of members, and it was through their efforts that Odd were finally admitted into the regional series in 1927, ten years after the club was founded. A year later, all was set for entry into the Football Association of Norway, had it not been for the fact that the association refused to have two member clubs with the same name. The Football Association of Norway ( NFF) (Norges Fotballforbund is the governing body of football in Norway. The club therefore took on its current name, Rosenborg Ballklub, on October 26, 1928.

Rosenborg enjoyed little success at first, moving constantly between the lower divisions of the regional series. Yet their performance was improving and in 1931 the team qualified for the highest level, and one year later they played in the Norwegian Cup for the first time. The Norwegian Men's Football Cup ( no: Norgesmesterskapet i fotball for herrer) is the main knockout cup competition in Norwegian football It was also at this time that Rosenborg started planning for a new home ground at Lerkendal, although this project was not completed until after World War II. World War II, or the Second World War, (often abbreviated WWII) was a global military conflict which involved a majority of the world's nations, including
Rosenborg's youth team has been one of the best in the country ever since the club was founded and an especially talented generation of youth players during the 1950s would grow up to form the basis for the first team's success in the 1960s and onwards. In 1960 they were promoted to the highest level in Norwegian football, the Main League (later the 1st Division). Tippeligaen is the top division for football in Norway.

It took a rematch to decide the winner, but Rosenborg were able to claim their first trophy. Rosenborg won the cup again in 1964, but had in the meantime gotten themselves relegated to the 2nd Division, where they played from 1963 to 1966. The First Division ( Norwegian: 1 divisjon or Adeccoligaen ' for Sponsorship reasons is the second highest division of the Norwegian football
Rosenborg were once again back in the top flight in 1967 and this would prove to be a highly successful year for the club. Lead on by such players as Harald Sunde, Nils Arne Eggen, and the talented young forward Odd Iversen, Rosenborg won their first league title. Nils Arne Eggen (born September 17, 1941 in Orkdal, Sør-Trøndelag, Norway) is the most successful coach in the history Odd "Ivers" Iversen (born November 6, 1945) is a former Norwegian Soccer player Iversen scored 17 goals in 18 matches that year, and would go on to score a massive 30 goals in the following season, although he alone could not prevent Rosenborg from being beaten to the title by Lyn.

The 1960s saw Rosenborg venture onto the European stage for the first time. As winners of the cup in 1964, the club debuted in the Cup Winners' Cup the following year. Three years later, Rosenborg entered the European Cup as winners of the league.

Rosenborg hired Englishman George Curtis as coach ahead of the 1969 season. George Frederick Curtis (born 3 December 1919 in West Thurrock; died Basildon 17 November 2004) was an English Curtis introduced the new 4-4-2 formation and shifted focus towards tactics and organization rather than all-out attacking football. This move worked well to begin with, as Rosenborg were crowned league winners for the third time. However, when both Odd Iversen and Harald Sunde left the club, Rosenborg virtually stopped scoring goals and failed to win again in 1970. Curtis was criticized for being too defensively minded and was replaced by recently retired player Nils Arne Eggen, who reverted to a more crowd-pleasing style of play. Nils Arne Eggen (born September 17, 1941 in Orkdal, Sør-Trøndelag, Norway) is the most successful coach in the history Eggen's first of four tenures as coach was a resounding success; Rosenborg won The Double. The Double is a term in football, which refers to winning a country's top tier division and its primary cup competition in the same season
The double-win in 1971 marked the end of the club's first golden age. The term Golden age is best known from Greek mythology and legend but can also be found in other ancient cultures (see below Rosenborg lost the cup final two years in a row and began to struggle in the league. A flurry of coaches (including Eggen) came and went without making an impact and in 1977 the team won only one match the entire season, finishing dead last.
Nils Arne Eggen was then called in for his third tenure, from 1978 to 1982, and with the return of the now 35-year old Odd Iversen, Rosenborg climbed back into the 1st Division the following year. Odd "Ivers" Iversen (born November 6, 1945) is a former Norwegian Soccer player In 1979, Iversen became top goalscorer for the fourth time in his career, but by the time he had retired in 1982, the club had still not regained its former glory. That would finally happen in 1985 when, after 14 trophyless years, Rosenborg defeated Lillestrøm in the final match of the season to win the league by a single point. Lillestrøm Sportsklubb is a Norwegian football club from the city of Lillestrøm.
The year 1985 may have been a turning point in Rosenborg's fortunes, but it was in 1988 that things really started to happen. The club received fresh capital from its new main sponsor and was fully professionalized. Nils Arne Eggen returned to Trondheim to once again become head coach, this after leading Moss to the league title in 1987. Moss Fotballklubb is a Norwegian football club founded on August 28, 1906. In the waning years of the 1980s, the club secured double-wins twice, in 1988 and 1990.
Rosenborg went on to dominate Norwegian club football throughout the 1990s. In strong contrast to the Norwegian national team's defensive and often criticized (yet highly effective) style of play at the time, Rosenborg achieved success through strict adherence to crowd-pleasing, offensive football. The Norwegian national football team, controlled by the Norwegian Football Association, is the national football team of Norway.

In 1995, Rosenborg qualified for the UEFA Champions League for the first time, a feat which helped secure the club's finances and further cement its dominance at the domestic level. See also List of European Cup and UEFA Champions League winners The UEFA Champions League, which evolved from the European Champion Clubs' Cup is a seasonal club The income provided through successive qualifications has allowed Rosenborg to become by far the wealthiest club in Norway. Always able to offer the most promising new players better terms than their opponents, as well as the prospect of playing in Europe, Rosenborg were assured of future league championships and European qualifications. During this period, few clubs were ever able to mount a serious challenge for more than a season at a time.

Rosenborg have on two occasions managed to progress beyond the first group stage of the Champions League. In the 1996-97 season, they were heading for an early exit, but with A.C.

At the end of 2002 Rosenborg saw the retirement of Nils Arne Eggen after many successful years, during which he was only relieved once, in the 1998 season, by his assistant, Trond Sollied. Trond Sollied (born 29 April 1959 in Mo i Rana) is a Norwegian football manager and former player Eggen was replaced by Åge Hareide, who had previously lead both Helsingborg and Brøndby to championships in their respective leagues. Åge Fridtjof Hareide (born 23 September 1953) was employed as the coach of the Norwegian national football team at the end of 2003 replacing Helsingborgs IF (alternative spelling Hälsingborgs IF between 1912 and 1971 most commonly referred to as HIF or Helsingborg is a Swedish football Brøndby IF is a Danish professional football club based in the town of Brøndby, on the western outskirts of Copenhagen.
Hareide asserted that in order to not only stay ahead at the domestic level, but also perform better at the European level, Rosenborg would have to become more cynical and focus more on defensive skill, while still maintaining the offensive play that had made the team so strong in the first place. The new manager also highlighted the need to renew the aging squad, whose continuity had been another key to the club's success; many of the players had been in the club since the start of the 1990s. In a controversial move, Hareide began this process by releasing the popular Bent Skammelsrud, who subsequently retired. Bent André Skammelsrud (born May 18, 1966 in Sarpsborg) is a former Norwegian football player most known as an important Midfielder
Under new leadership, Rosenborg laid waste to the league, losing only three games and winning 14 points ahead of runners-up Bodø/Glimt. FK Bodø/Glimt is a Norwegian Football club from the town of Bodø and was founded in 1916 The club claimed its seventh Double, again defeating Bodø/Glimt in the cup final. Despite failing to qualify for the Champions League, Rosenborg had enjoyed another great season and it looked like Hareide's beginning reforms were paying off, but 2003 turned out to be his one and only season at the club as he accepted an offer to lead the Norwegian national team in December of that year. He was replaced by his assistant Ola By Rise, a notable former goalkeeper and goalkeeping coach at the club. Ola By Rise (born November 14, 1960 in Trondheim) is a Norwegian football coach and former player
With Hareide's unexpected departure at the end of 2003 the club failed to properly execute the reforms he had begun. It also became clear that with the increased flow of capital into Norwegian football, some clubs were finally beginning to perform at a more consistent level close, or even equal, to that of Rosenborg. Rosenborg were no longer able to dominate every match, instead taking on the appearance of a team fed up with success.
Rosenborg were league winners again in 2004 but it was only through more scored goals that they were able claim the title. Ola By Rise's contract was terminated in October, even though he succeeded in leading the team to the Champions League, and for some time it was uncertain who would take over. In November the club announced the return of Nils Arne Eggen as a sort of advisor to former assistant manager, Per Joar Hansen, who was promoted to manager. Per Joar Hansen (born August 17, 1965 in Namsos, Norway) is a Norwegian football coach who grew up in the small community of Bjørn Hansen and Rune Skarsfjord would also act as assistant managers. Rune "Skars" Skarsfjord (born 23 May 1970 in Narvik) is a Norwegian football coach currently employed as the manager of FK Haugesund
The scheme proved so unsuccessful that Rosenborg's 2005 season was for the most part a disaster. The club battled to avoid falling into the relegation zone for much of the season, Eggen left his role midways, and Per Joar Hansen left, probably under pressure, in August. Per-Mathias Høgmo followed Hansen as the club's manager immediately after his departure. Per-Mathias Høgmo (born December 1 1959) is a former football manager from Norway. His first months were marred by a series of embarrassing losses and an early exit from the cup, but with a late-season return to form the team held on to its place in the top flight and finishing third in the Champions League Group Stage, qualifying them for the UEFA Cup.
Rosenborg's woes continued in the spring of 2006. Halfway through the season, rival Brann held a commanding 10-point lead.

This time, however, it was a complete success. Rosenborg won eight straight games, gobbling up Brann's lead, and finally overtaking them.

On October 31, Per-Mathias Høgmo ended prolonged speculation on whether he would return and in what role, when he held a press conference where he stated that he resigned as manager with immediate effect, and would withdraw from football altogether.

Despite the good result in 2006, manager Knut Tørum has not been able to gain the same success in the 2007 season. That, together with his troubles to get along with director Knut Thorbjørn Eggen resulted in his resignation on 25 October 2007.

After Tørum's resignation, Rosenborg started negotiating with Trond Sollied to fill the head coach vacancy. Trond Sollied (born 29 April 1959 in Mo i Rana) is a Norwegian football manager and former player Sollied, who since his departure in 1998 has become a merited coach in Belgium, has earlier been linked back to Rosenborg at several occasions. After a lengthy process Sollied turned down the job, giving ammunition to those criticizing the way in which Rosenborg has dealt with their reoccurring head coach issue in the latter years.  On December 28th, Rosenborg announced Erik Hamrén as their new coach for the 2008 season.
