This master thesis is a comparative study of three football clubs in Stavanger, Viking FK, Stavanger Idrettsforening (SIF) and FK Vidar, in order to find out why two clubs became sporting dominant in separate periods between 1899 and 1940. These three football clubs were the pioneers in the development of football in Stavanger, founded respectively in 1899, 1905 and 1906. Firstly, this thesis studies why SIF were the dominant football club in Stavanger from its foundation until mid 1920’s, and why it wasn`t Viking or Vidar. To answer this question, I have looked at the composition of various factors that may have contributed to their sporting success. These factors are organizational structure, finances, influence of a foreign club manager, and the players' interest and discipline. It is the interaction between these factors that has led to SIF becoming sporting dominant. Secondly, this thesis also studies why Viking developed to become the sporting dominant football club from mid 1920’s to 1940. As in chapter two, I have looked at the composition of various factors that may have helped explain Viking’s sporting success. These factors are an individual’s particular influence on the club’s progress, finances, influence from a foreign manager, and the players’ interest and discipline.
