Tromsø and Bodø are the two largest cities in the Northern part of Norway, and their teams are the best performing ones from that part of the country. The rivalry really started in the early 1990s as both teams began playing at the top level. Norwegian football needed more rivalries and the media started branding this one as the "battle of the north". Matches draw big crowds and are often played on the 16th of May, the day before the Norwegian Constitution Day.

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Eliteserien.
