The structure and organisation of Eliteserien along with Norway's other football leagues have undergone frequent changes. Starting with the 2017 season, the League is called Eliteserien after NFF decided to totally drop the sponsor name from the name of the League after the 2016 season.

Molde secured its first Eliteserien League championship in five years, with two games left to play. After having seen archrival Rosenborg win four League titles in a row, Molde squad could celebrate after beating Strmsgodset 4-0 in early November. The second celebration occurs after the season finale against second place Bod / Glimt in snow on Moldes home turf on Dec. 1. After the 4-2 win, gold confetti fell on them, and the championship trophy was present, and players received their medals. After two League titles under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjr in 2011 and 2012, and one under manager Tor Ole Skullerud in 2014, Molde fans have been forced to watch Rosenborg celebrate four consecutive League titles. But in Erling Moes ' first season as Molde manager after taking over for Solskjaer in December 2018, team came out victorious. Moe has been praised for how quickly he was able to put his own thoughts and ideas into the squad and that he has been able to get the best out of each player. It has been an unusual soccer season. Moldes success on the pitch has almost been outshone by Rosenborgs failures off the pitch and drop in attendance. Rosenborg had won five of the last six Norwegian League and Cup titles, but halfway through 2018, Rosenborg board suddenly stated that they were happy with the club's development and sacked team manager Kare Ingebrigtsen. That unexpected move has resulted in the 2019 season filled with constant internal disarray, early Cup exit, and third place in the League, 16 points behind Molde. Never in last 18 years have so few spectators made their way into Norwegian soccer stadiums, down 1. 51 % from 2018. One reason for the attendance decline might be that teams like Rosenborg, Brann and Valerenga, teams that usually draw the biggest crowds, have underperform. Another point made by soccer experts is that Norwegian teams are getting less root in their local communities. If you look at Rosenborg, for example, team that is known for using players from their own region, Trondheim team has used only one player from their home region in their first team lineup this season. However, Rosenborg's failures do not take anything away from Molde's achievements. They have been superb from their first kickoff and didnt lose single match on their home field. Molde has outperformed in competition this season, both as a team and as individual players. Moldes best player of 2019 was arguably Magnus Wolff Eikrem. Molde local returned to his hometown last season after unsuccessful stays in both Cardiff in the English Premier League and Seattle Sounders in Major League Soccer. He has delivered a bunch of great performances. He has provide 19 points in 25 matches and is back in the national team discussion. He was named NTB Stock Exchange Player of Year. He was one of three Molde players with more than 10 goals with 11. James had 17 and Ohi Omoijuanfo had 15.
