Håkon Eikemo Opdal (born 11 June 1982) is a Norwegian football goalkeeper, currently playing for SK Brann in the Norwegian Premier League.

After being reserve to Ivar Rønningen for a couple of seasons, he became regular in the starting lineup when Rønningen was sold in the middle of the 2004 season, leaving Opdal with no competition. Since that, only injuries have put Opdal out of the team.

Opdal became a hero in one of his first starts. In a cup game against Bodø/Glimt the score was 3-3 at the end of regular time. In the penalty shootout, Opdal saved a penalty and later scored the winning penalty himself. Brann carried on to win the cup that year.

Opdal was in the Norwegian national football team squad for the first time in May 2006.

He made his debut on 15 November 2006 against Serbia.
