History
• Originally called SK Odd in honour of Odd Grenland, Norway's most successful club at the time, the Trondheim-based side changed their name to Rosenborg in 1927, first competing in the Norwegian Cup in 1933 and moving to their Lerkendal home in 1947.

• Thanks in part to an excellent record of producing young players, Rosenborg beat Odd to claim their maiden Norwegian Cup in 1960; they won that trophy again in 1964, a side featuring future coach Nils Arne Eggen taking their first league crown in 1967.

• A league and cup double in 1971, and another top-flight success in 1985, followed before Eggen took over as coach in 1988, bidding to make Rosenborg the pre-eminent force in Norwegian football; playing a hallmark 4-3-3 style, Eggen's side won 12 of the 15 titles – including one under Trond Sollied in 1998 – between then and his final departure 2002.

• Further titles in the two seasons after Eggen left – under Åge Hareide and then Ola By Rise – made it 13 in a row, Rosenborg's monopoly not broken until 2005. That golden age also included great performances in Europe, with the 2-1 win at San Siro with which Rosenborg eliminated AC Milan from the UEFA Champions League in December 1996 perhaps the high-water mark of the Eggen era.

• Erik Hamrén led the club to the title in 2009; Eggen returned as caretaker as the Swede became his national-team coach, winning yet another championship in 2009 before Stabæk IF boss Jan Jönsson assumed command at the start of 2011.
