It is one of the most successful clubs in Norwegian football, having won 8 Norwegian top division titles, most recently in 1991, and 5 domestic Norwegian Cup titles, most recently in 2001. The club has played more top-flight league games than any other club. It has played in the top division since the league was established, except for the years 1966–67, 1987–88 and 2018. Notable European successes include knocking English side Chelsea out of the UEFA Cup during the 2002–03 season, knocking out Sporting CP from the same tournament in 1999–2000, and qualifying for the group stages of the 2005–06 UEFA Cup.
