Raufoss IL Fotball was founded in 1918. Initially, the club participated in various sports, including football, athletics, and skiing.
Raufoss primarily competed in the lower divisions of Norwegian football, often in the third tier (Norwegian Second Division) and occasionally in the fourth tier (Norwegian Third Division).
In the early 2000s, Raufoss experienced a period of success and gained promotion to the Norwegian First Division (second tier). They competed in the First Division for the first time in the 2001 season.
Raufoss’ stay in the First Division was short-lived, as they faced relegation back to the lower divisions after the 2002 season.
The club continued to compete in the lower divisions and made efforts to regain their position in the higher tiers of Norwegian football.
Raufoss experienced a resurgence in the 2010s. In the 2018 season, they won the Norwegian Second Division Group 1 and earned promotion to the Norwegian First Division.
Raufoss made their return to the Norwegian First Division in the 2019 season. They achieved a solid eighth-place finish in their comeback season.
In the 2020 season, Raufoss had a remarkable campaign and finished in second place in the Norwegian First Division. This secured them a spot in the promotion play-offs, where they faced Aalesunds FK. Unfortunately, Raufoss was unable to secure promotion, losing the play-off tie.
Raufoss continues to compete in the Norwegian First Division, aiming to establish themselves as a competitive club in the second tier of Norwegian football.
The club’s home matches are played at Nammo Stadion in Raufoss, which has a capacity of around 3,000 spectators.
