In January 2014, it was agreed that 15-year-old odegaard would be part of Strømsgodset’s first team for the year, but no professional contract was signed. The competition rules state that to play in Tippeligaen, players must have a professional contract to be eligible.
However, the club included Odegaard on the “B-list” for amateur players, which made him eligible for up to three matches per season. odegaard was unable to train with Stromsgodset in the daytime since he was still in compulsory education. Thus, as part of the agreement, he trained two evenings a week with Mjøndalen IF, a semi-professional First Division team at the time, where his father was one of the coaches.
