Bislett FK keen on winning an unprecedented back-to-back promotion

After a very successful season, during which both the first and second team of Bislett FK got promoted, the club’s management is now gearing up for the next season. They want to win back-to-back promotion to the 6th division.

“We know it won’t be easy to win back-to-back promotion, but if ever we had the team to do it, it’d be this team!” says Bislett FK Chairman, Geraldo Cantuaria. “We have a perfect recipe for the win: two managers that have the experience needed to win the league, plus we won’t lose as many quality players as we did in previous years. The club’s future looks really bright both on and off the pitch.”

“Off the pitch, we have revived the Bislett Social Club (BSC),” Geraldo continues, “The BSC is a big part of the Bislett FK culture. Our social events are always fun and bring our players closer together. Especially for players that are new to Oslo and join our club, it’s a great way to make new friends and amp up their social life.”

The 10-match unbeaten run

Since Ben Briggs and Erik Reijrink, Bislett FK’s 1st team managers, took over the team, Bislett FK has been on fire, and finished in the top of their division each year. Their recent record speaks for itself with 10 straight wins, scoring 3,8 goals a game.

With a winning streak like this, the club is ready to take on a new division and compete for the top places straight away. And the managers dare to dream big and are confident back-to-back promotion is possible.

We’re only getting started

“Two and a half years ago, Ben Briggs, Dan Whymark, Matt Morrison, and myself started the project to bring Bislett FK to the 5th division in Oslo,” says Erik Reijrink. “Our promotion last year was only the first step. This season we will try to win the promotion again. We are looking for new players to challenge the current squad and to keep things fresh. Because we want to continue playing our free-flowing counter-pressing football.”

“Being Dutch myself, I’ve got the typical Dutch football DNA in me. Which means we want to play attacking football and win by scoring more goals than our opponents,” says Erik.

Ben Briggs is quick to add: “Agreed, we need attack-minded players, but they need to help the team out defensively. At the moment we have a group that has a lot of grit, determination and a strong will to win. We are looking for players that are willing to work for the team. Our defense starts with our front players.”

Bislett FK the international football club in Oslo

In Oslo, there is no other club like Bislett FK. We are the international football club in Oslo. We have players from all over the world. From Brazil to Australia, and even from Sweden.

Bislett Fotball Klubb has a very unique identity. We are the only club in Oslo that combines competitive performances on the pitch with a very easy going and social atmosphere off the pitch.

Many of our players have played for traditional Norwegian clubs, before joining Bislett Fotball Klubb. And all players experienced the same thing. Once the football part was over, the club had nothing else to offer. For us at Bislett FK it´s important that we have a good time outside of football as well. We like to enjoy good beer at a local pub, and we don’t shy away from some good old banter either!

If you are new to Oslo and you are looking to get your social life going, Bislett Fotball Klubb is the best place to start. Within 2 weeks you will have more friends than you have time to hang out with.

Matt Morrison, 28 Scottish

Joining Bislett Fotball Klubb was the best decision I made since coming to Oslo. I didn’t know anybody when I got here. Now, I can play competitive football and go out for a beer to watch some football with mates, like I used to do back home in Scotland.

The beginning of Bislett Fotball Klubb

Bislett Fotball Klubb was founded in 2008 by two legends called Dave Walshe (Northern Irish) and Chris Worsfold (English). Both guys had tried to find a football club, but none of the clubs they joined had the same social scene they were used to from back home. So one day they decided to create their own football club.

This way they could enjoy their football on their own terms. They wanted to play a competitive game of football and have a beer after the game with friends to discuss the game played or Premier league football in general.

Since then Bislett has grown from a single men’s 11 team to being a club with two senior 11 teams, one senior 7’s team and six youth teams. All playing under the Bislett FK banner. 

8th division Oslo

This year Bislett Fotball Klubb will have two senior teams in the 8th division here in Oslo. This means that both teams will play on a Friday evening. Which is perfect, because this means both teams can meet up at one of our favorite pubs in Oslo for a beer after the game.

Since the NFF has completely rearranged the Oslo division for the upcoming season, both league´s we play in will be more competitive. Our first team is looking to build on last years performances in the 7th division to push for promotion. Where the second team is there to groom players to be ready when the first team needs them.

If you are keen to be a part of this, make sure to sign up for our tryout training.
