Join the country in cheering for the teams on skates with sticks and an orange ball - the second most popular winter sport after hockey! Bandy is a very unique and fast-paced game. It is also very unusual in perfectly combining hockey and football.

There are many Cups and Leagues throughout the year in Sweden such as for example, Svenska Cupen. In the past, bandy was played on frozen lakes. Later, bandy fields were created on soccer pitches in the winter. A bandy field has to be significantly larger than a regular ice hockey rink. The most famous bandy team in Stockholm is Hammarby Bandy. They play at their home stadium Zinkensdamm IP. Bandy is considered to be a winter sport, so most competitions end around April. Tickets could be purchased through the club's website.
