History Of American Football In Norway
American football in Norway began in 1949 when students from two secondary schools (videregående) in Oslo—at Riis and Ullern—began playing an annual gridiron game, starting with a meeting on October 30. An Associated Press report from Oslo the next day noted that a crowd of 500 watched, and that the introduction of the sport was credited to "Alf Stenere, former Norwegian exchange student to Bowdoin College, and Tony Bower of Kansas City, 17-year old student here". Reportedly, Riis won the first game, 20-13.[1] In 1983, the Norwegian American Football Federation (NAFF) was founded, and played its first international game in Stockholm, Sweden, and won 38-0. An article of the game appeared in the Norway’s second largest newspaper Dagbladet, on January 28, 1985. In Stockholm, Sweden, again, for the first Scandinavian Cup in American football, to be played by Sweden, Finland' and Norway, NAFF became the champion
