1. deild is the second tier league of football in the Faroe Islands. It was founded in 1943. The league is organised by the Faroe Islands Football Association. It was originally the top level of Faroe Islands football but was replaced by the Faroe Islands Premier League in 2005.

Contents

The league has 10 participating clubs. At the end of each season, two teams are relegated and two promoted from the 2. deild, pending the fact that the promoted team does not already have a team in 1. deild. In such cases, the team that finished third will be promoted instead. If a team is relegated to 1. deild and already have a side playing there, their reserve team will move one division down, thereby saving another team from relegation.

History

Founded in 1943 as Meðaldeildin, it acts in a system of promotion and relegation with the top division since 1976, [1] when the Faroe Islands football league system was reorganized. Back then, 1. deild was the name given to the top division, replacing the Meistaradeildin. The first club to be promoted was Fram Tórshavn after winning the division for the first time in their history. The first team relegated to the league was NSÍ Runavík.
