Fram Sports Club was founded 15.01.1894 by some boys in the cabin of Nicolai Engvoldsen (1848–1934) in Torstrand, a district in Larvik, Norway where our stadium is situated today.

Magnus Mathiesen was the first Chairman of the club.

Fram Larvik is the oldest football club in Norway.


1912: In 1912 Fram Larvik won the Norwegian Cup Final against Mercantile 2–1. The losing team Mercantile protested against the result and claimed that Fram used a non-entitled player, Otto Christiansen, who studied in Trondheim and played a game for a local team the same year. The result of the complaint was a rematch in which Fram Larvik lost 6–0.
Fram’s team: Einar Jensen, Fritz Christophersen, Alf Malcolm Andersen, Alfred Hansen, Peder Henriksen*, Henry Jonassen, Carl Christophersen, Olaf Ruud, Johan Hallberg, Tormod Kjellsen, Ingebretsen.

1949–50 season: Fram Larvik won the Norwegian Premier League (Hovedserien) after winning their group. 14 games were played of which Fram won 7, played 6 draws and lost only 1 game. The winners of the two groups, Fram Larvik and Fredrikstad played the final. It was a 2 game final of which Fram Larvik won the first game and drew the second.
