The new Eliteserien branding introduces a totally new logo that has some things in common with the new Premier League logo, even though the brand process started in 2014. The logo boasts a modern design in navy and light blue with a lion used as a symbol league, which also builds a bridge to the crest of the Norwegian national team.

Norway newspaper VG asked Leif Øverland (CEO of the league) how much they were inspired by the Premier League logo as the lion takes a central place. He replied that 'This [Premier League] is something that has come up in the focus groups we've had. We have been helped by a skilled firm that has worked on it, it is not our profession at all, and then the lion come up as a joint symbol for football in Norway.

Interestingly, Norway's league also introduced a Derby Saturday as well as a Super Sunday, similar to Premier League's way of promoting their match days.
