Skövde AIK is a Swedish football club from Skövde. It was founded on 21 June 1919. The club is currently in Division 1 Södra.

Background

Skövde AIK has played 14 seasons in second tier Swedish football, the last time being as recently as 1995 in the Division 1 Södra. Eight seasons later the club had plunged into Division 5 Västergötland Östra, the sixth tier, having been relegated 3 consecutive times between 2000 and 2002. However SAIK have made a dramatic recovery and by 2007 were back in Division 1 Södra which is now the third tier of Swedish football after 4 consecutive promotions. In 2006, Skövde AIK won the Division 2 Mellersta Götaland after defeating IK Sleipner 2-1 in the decisive final match before 2364 spectators. In 2009 the club just failed to get into the Superettan after missing out in the Promotion Playoffs.

The club is affiliated to the Västergötlands Fotbollförbund.[1]
