Born in Drammen, Norway, Ødegaard is the son of Lene Cecilie Ødegaard and Hans Erik Ødegaard, who is also a former football player. With his father’s background, he eventually also fell in love with football starting his playing career in a local club led by his father.

Their local club was Drammen Strong, with which Ødegaard played for a total of five years starting in 2005, and with which he trained during his younger years. He also received a prize from the team twice, when he was given the Statoil talent award in April 2014, and again for the 2014 season.

In 2012, at the age of 13 Ødegaard began training with the Strømsgodset first team. Although he encountered some challenges as he was still in compulsory education, and so the lack of an initial professional contract during his early years with the team, he still stayed. When he made his debut in April 2014 for Strømsgodset, he became the youngest footballer ever to play in Tippeligaen.

In January 2015, Ødegaard signed with Real Madrid; he trained with both the Real Madrid and the first team’s reserve, Read Madrid Castilla. Despite encountering a couple of problems with the team, he eventually made his official debut for Real Madrid on 23 May 2015, and became the youngest debutant in the team’s history at the age of 16 years and 157 days old.

Aside from playing for the Real Madrid, Ødegaard also played for the Norwegian national team, debuting in 2014, and the Dutch club SC Heerenveen when he was sent on loan by Real Madrid for 18 months, until the end of the 2017-18 season. His successful career as a professional football player tremendously increased his net worth.

In 2015, Ødegaard was named by Time Magazine as one of the 30 most influential teenagers of the year.

In terms of his personal life, Ødegaard is currently dating her high school girlfriend Oda Burud.
