The Best League In Scandinavia & the Nordic countries? Norway/Sweden/Denmark/Finland?

Which is the best league overall in Scandanavia (excluding Royal League!)? I velieve it is Norway due the amount of foreign players they have and experienced and still young quality Norweigen players such as Flo, Iversen, Johnsen, Ludvigsen, Holm, Gashi, Solli, etc....
What are your views?

I think they're pretty much as equal as they can get.

BTW, does anybody know average attendance figures for the top two teams in Norway (Valerenga and Rosenborg), top 2 in Denmark (Brondby & Copenhagen) and top 2 in Sweden (Djurgardens & Goteborgs)? (2005 seasons)

Agree with Fredrik. It is pretty equal, ecept Finland who are on a lower level. Its about the same as compere the English, Italian and Spanish leagues, poeple got their favorite and will claim "their" league is the strongest.

Averange attendance for Rosenborg is 17494 and 15982 for Vĺlerenga, dont know what Danish and Swedish teams got but I heard that Norway got the biggest overall attendance in the league this year.

I think FC Křbenhavn is the riches club before Rosenborg. The Norwegian clubs have got more money latly becouse of the new TV rights. And some of the clubs have got rick "oncels" to support them.

Quite to the contrary, RBK are in the middle of nowhere this season.

Sweden: MFF 17274, Djurgaarden 14306 (with a total of 6 clubs in 5 digit figures).

Denmark: FCK 15854 (1 game so far and below their normal crowd size), Bröndby 13197 (also well below their standards so far).

The leauges are pretty even, and all of them have improved this season.


These are the average attendance numbers in Norway and the overall average is about 9 500 (which mean it's the league with the best average in Scandinavia) :

Rosenborg 17 494 (8)
Vĺlerenga 15 982 (7)
Brann 15 155 (8)
Viking 13 449 (8)
Aalesund 10 594 (8) - which is about the same as the capacity
Start 9 020(8)
Fredrikstad 8 851 (8)
Lillestrřm 8 189 (8)
Molde 6 674 (8)
Lyn 6 665 (8)
Ham-Kam 5 447 (8)
Tromsř 5 161(8)
Odd Grenland 4 883 (8)
Bodř/Glimt 4 610 (8)

(x)=number of games played at home


I find it funny that people say Rosenborg supporters are glory hunters... We have the best average ever this season...

Fanx for the avg attendance figures guys! And how can Puma say tht Norway is a one man band! Is he stuck in the 90s? Valerenga definately have a better team than Rosenborg with Flo, Iversen, Gashi, Hoseth, Johnsen, Skiri, Muri, Ishizaki, etc... and there is also the surprise package - Start!

Using Rosenborg against Norway is wrong anyway, because in several of those years RBK were the best team in Scandinavia by light years, even reaching the quarter final in the Champions League.

The richest league in Scandinavia is the Danish by a mile, mainly due to FCK alone.

Didn't the Royal League already decide this? I imagine that's exactly why they came up with it, so that you fine people wouldn't have to worry about it

La Juve? Lasciamo perdere.

It's not that easy Numerodix.

Take for instance Brřndby and FCK. Brřndby won the Danish championship with 12 points to FCK. FCK won the Royal League, and Brřndby didn't even make it from the first group phase. Is FCK then better than the Danish Champions?
