Sport: “Lørenskog IF and LSK Kvinner FK have entered into an agreement of intent to arrive at the principles, agreement structure and financial conditions for a merger of the clubs from 1 January 2025,” says a press release from the two clubs.

The agreement is not legally binding, but is an expression of the clubs’ intentions and joint desire for a final agreement, according to the clubs.

LSK Kvinner is in a tough financial period. In April, all employees who are not players were partially laid off. It was referred to as a “critical economic situation”.

In mid-May, the club was deducted one point in the Toppserien for the money mess.

NRK’s ​​football expert Carl-Erik Torp is critical of LSK Women and Lørenskog’s agreement:

– I think that the whole process seems like a slightly panicked decision. It does not seem that a thorough process has been carried out in this – it rather seems like an attempt to try to save the club, Torp.

A final merger must be approved by both clubs at an annual meeting.

LSK Kvinner has seven league titles and won the Toppserien most recently in 2019.
