– It is very pleasing for the players, the clubs, the public and the Norwegian football that the strike is over. I want to thank both parties having agreed on a new agreement so that we can continue the season again, “said General Secretary of Norwegian Football Federation (NFF), Paul Glomsaker to fotball.no.
About the Strike
The players from Norway's first division, the Tippeligaen, went on strike, fighting for the right to choose their own cleats and other equipment against the regulation of the Tippeligaen, which requires players to only use equipment from club sponsors. The strike led to the postponement of matches scheduled for Sunday and Monday.
