History

Landsdelsserien consisted of seven district groups of seven or eight team in each group. The two winners of the groups from Eastern Norway were promoted directly to the following season's top division, at the time named Hovedserien (English: The Main League). The remaining five winner qualified for promotion play-offs to compete for two spots in the following season's top division. In the 1961–62 season, only two teams promoted. Teams from Northern Norway did not participate in the national league system until 1972 and thus did not participate in Landsdelsserien. [1]
