FK Mjølner is a Norwegian football club from Narvik. It was formed in 1932 when Støa Mjølner (until 1926: FK Steady 1919 Mjølner) and King Mjølner (until 1921: FK Freidig 1918 Mjølner) merged. The club was called Mjølner until 1994, when the name was changed to Mjølner-Narvik. In October 1997 the club merged with local rivals Narvik/Nor. The merger club took the name Narvik FK. In the winter of 2005 Narvik FK changed name back to FK Mjølner.

FK Mjølner was the first club from Northern Norway allowed to play in the Norwegian top division. Before the 1972 season clubs from the north could not gain promotion to the top division. Mjølner played against the best in the 1972 and 1989 seasons, but were relegated both times after just one season in the top division.

With the exception of those two seasons, FK Mjølner stayed in the second division (level) from 1970 to 1991. 1992 saw FK Mjølner at the third level, which by then was called second division. They got promoted back to the second level, where they stayed for 3 seasons from 1993 until they got relegated again in 1995. They played in the second division (level 3) in 1996 and 1997, merged with Narvik/Nor, and continued playing in that division as Narvik FK until 2001, when they were relegated to the third division (level 4). After one season at that level they were promoted back to the second division again. But in 2004 they were again relegated to the third division. With their old name FK Mjølner they are starting the 2005 season in third division.

The club has a record 13 Northern Norwegian Cup championships, 9 by FK Mjølner, and 4 by Narvik/Nor.
