Sports[edit]

The most successful sports team of the city has for several years been the football team Enköpings SK, with one peak season in the Swedish Premier Division (Allsvenskan) in 2003. Unfortunately, the team has now faced the harsh reality of sports and economics and will be playing in Division 2 in 2008. Their home arena is called Enavallen and is situated in downtown Enköping.
