It was the cricket aficionado Sarfraz Kayani who, together with two of his brothers, founded Sigtuna Cricket Club in 1989.
Sigtuna is often noted as one of the most important clubs in Swedish cricket, together with Guttsta WCC and Pakistan CC, since the club has done so much for the development of the sport in Sweden. Today, Sigtuna CC has over 30 members, all of them very much interested in cricket. The number of members would probably have been much higher, had Sigtuna not been situated so close to Stockholm.
During the first couple of years, Sigtuna Cricket Club did very well. Sigtuna won, for example, the Swedish Cricket Championships (Allsvenskan) the season 1994. Following the win, Sigtuna CC disappeared somewhat from the highest competitive level. A lack of interest and an empty bank account made it impossible for Sigtuna to compete on the highest level. Sigtuna was not able to get to the top of Swedish cricket again until the start of the season 2000. During this time, there was an inflow of quality cricket players and the club could put together a team capable of competing for honours.
During the 21st century, Sigtuna CC has won a couple of high-profile competitions. Sigtuna CC won the classic tournament Jinnah-cupen both 2006 and 2009. 2007 and 2010 Sigtuna reached the final in the tournament. Also, Sigtuna CC managed to finish in second place in the Swedish Cricket Championship both 2007 and 2010.
During the last couple of years, Sigtuna CC has also had success outside the playing oval. The chairman of the club, Sarfraz Kayani, has managed to introduce cricket in a number of schools in Sigtuna. Also, kids living in Sigtuna nowadays have the opportunity to practise cricket after school.
The venue for cricket matches, as well as cricket practice, in Sigtuna, is Norrbackafältet. The playing oval is situated in the eastern part of Sigtuna, right next to the Norrbacka school. The oval is regularly used for the finals of the Swedish Cricket Championships.
