Asker Fotball is the football department of Norwegian sports club Asker SK from Asker.
The women's football team is one of the most successful clubs ever in Norway, with 6 top flight championships and 5 cup championships. Due to financial difficulties at the end of 2008 the team's licence to play in the Toppserien was revoked, and the team members then joined Stabæk IF's football group, Stabæk Fotball, which set up a new women's team. NFF gave Asker's place in the Toppserien to Stabæk Fotball. Asker's second team became Asker's first team, playing in the 2. divisjon, and they now have a recruiting arrangement with Stabæk Fotball.
The men's team currently play in the 2. divisjon, the third tier of the Norwegian football league system.
The men's team played in the Norwegian top flight between 1951 and 1959. In 1951 they became runners-up in the Norwegian cup.
The women's team won all its league matches in the 1998 season.[ citation needed ] The men's division did the same thing in 2005, though in the 3. divisjon.[ citation needed ]
On 13 July 2012, four players – one of them from Asker – were arrested by police due to match fixing allegations in games involving Aker and Follo FK. Asker's 7–1 loss over Frigg was deemed suspicious because of the odd score line and high bettings placed on the game.
