The men's football team formerly cooperated to prop up an umbrella team called Groruddalen BK, but this team went defunct in 2008. Grorud IL was not the backbone of Groruddalen BK, however; this was Årvoll IL whose league spot was taken over by Groruddalen BK.
As Grorud IL, the men's football team played in the Third Division, the fourth tier of Norwegian football, for many years, having been promoted for the 1994 season. After being relegated in 1997 the team quickly returned in 1999. After a long Third Division stint, the team won promotion in 2011 and will play in the 2012 Norwegian Second Division.
The club finished construction of its football field in 1926, and its ski jumping hill Rannkollen in 1928. In 1932 the football field was covered with gravel, which allowed the practice of skating sports during the winter. In 1932, Grorud IL was one of the first workers' sports clubs to take up the tennis sport.
