Foundation & Establishment
The club was founded april 17th, 2007, but it was not made official until four days after. There were several suggestions for the team name, but Kyrkjevollen Vikings were selected.
Kyrkjevollen Vikings played their very first match on april 21th. It ended with a 5-2 lose against FK Hetlevikåsen. The first victory came against Frøidistubabænd, with 3-0.
Vikings ended up with a solid 3rd place in the debutseason. The following two seasons they ended up with two new 3rd places. In their 4th season in VII.453 they finally got the promotion to sixth divition after a flawless season. 14 of 14 victories and goal difference with 78-9.
Kyrkjevollen Vikings debuted in sixth with a surprisingly 2nd place! They managed to finish 2nd the following two seasons aswell. As in 7th divition the club managed to be promoted after four seasons. With 40 of 42 points and 62-10 were by far good enough for FK Tåfis to get promotion to 5th divition.
For the first time in the history the club didn't manage to finish in top 3 in their first season in the 5th division as they ended at 6th place. The following season in 5th division they ended surprisingly at 3rd place, but then again in the next two seasons they fell down from the top 3 as they finsihed 4th and 5th. After the bad 5th-place-season the club managed to make two top 2 seasons in-a-row and came all the way to the sixth round in the cup! The following season Atlético Westra were outstanding at the top of the league as they became champions whit 7 points ahead of the second place. This was their first championship in 7 seasons!
Atlético Westra then faced fourth divition for the first time in the history and ended on a surprisingly second place. Westra was predicted as a mid-table team before the sesaon, but surprised everyone and finished second best with 8 victories, 1 draw and 5 losses. All though Atletico Westra surprised in the league they did disastrously bad in the cup as they were beeten out in round three, which was the worst in five sesasons.
Atlético Westra were predicted to become the winners in the following season, but ended up as number 7! The board of the club felt they were forced to sell the squad to avoid a economic crises and ended therefor at 7th place. The club was relegated for the first time in history. Not surprisingly they were relegated the following season. Altético Westra were then back to 6th division, 11 years after they got promoted from 6th to 5th division.
Atlético Westra made their comeback in season 50. They bought eight new players during the season and spent €32 million. The comeback season was spoiled because of the shocking qualifiers loss as they got beeten with 4 goals to three. Atlético Westra were 0-2 up at halftime, but after the fifteen first minutes of the second half they had conceded three goals. Westra were the best team during the whole match, but the home team had all the luck and won the game.
They did a new perfect season in the league by winning 14 of 14 league matches. They also did well in the cup. Winning against opponents in sixth, fifth and fourth divition is a good achievement. In the fourth round they got beaten with three goals to nill against a third divition team.
The third season ended with a second place. The season were a tough season with alot of figthing to avoid the qualifiers. A little disappointing they ended up thirteen points behind the winners. Stian Brekke became the topscorer for the second season in a row.
Back in fourth
Five seasons after the relegation from fourth divition they finally managed to get back, after an astonishing season in fifth with 13-1-0 and 56-9. They also showed their strength in the cup by reaching sixth round after beating a third divition team 5-1 and almost beating former premier team, Big Time Loosers. BTL became late winners by winning 3-4 in the 81th minute. Big Time Loosers finished their season as third at the second highest level in Norway and were beaten in seventh round of the cup.
