Bandy is a team winter sport played on ice by 11 field players, in which skaters use sticks to direct a ball into the opposing team’s goal. Based on the number of participating athletes, bandy is the world’s second-most popular winter sport after ice hockey. The equipment used is similar with Ice Hockey: Bandy ball, bandy stick, skates, protective gear.
At first glance bandy may be mistaken for ice hockey, however, the game is more comparable with football; Played on a rink the size of a football pitch with 11players per team, two 45-minute halves, the same offside rule and unlike hockey there is no puck, bandy players use a small plastic orange ball.
Like football, players pass, dribble and shoot, with play only stopping when the ball goes out for a goal throw, corner stroke, penalty stroke, stroke in or by the referee. Discipline is maintained by the red and blue card system – Red means you can no longer play for the remainder of the game, while Blue is a 10-minute penalty (three Blues in the same game result in a red).
Bandy is often described as a cross between football and hockey. Popular amongst Scandinavian countries and in Russia, the sports roots are surprisingly firmly set within England’s history – as Bandy was first played in 1813 in Cambridgeshire, England.
With such noticeable similarities between the two sports, it gives the bettors with knowledge of either soccer or hockey the ability to transfer their betting skills to bandy.
Despite various countries hosting Bandy Leagues, the Swedish Elitserien (inauguration for the 2007-2008 season) is probably the most established league in the world. The Elitserien consists of 14 teams and begins with the regular season in late October whereby each team play 26 games. The first eight teams then qualify for the quarter-finals, and there is a knockout format until the two remaining teams compete in the season finale at the Friends arena.
The two teams finishing at the bottom play a relegation round robin tournament against the top two teams from the Allsvenskan – the second division -, with the top two teams playing in the Elitserien the following season.
