Bandy was introduced 1895 in Sweden by all round athlete Clarence von Rosen. He picked the game up during a visit in bandy's home country Great Britain. He started the first bandy club in Sweden, Stockholm Hockeyklubb. First in 1905 bandy was organized within Swedish Ballplay Association and a year later within Swedish Football Association. At a meeting April 5, 1925, the Swedish Bandy Association was formed representing 49 clubs.
Since 1931, the Swedish Bandy Association regularly arranges national leagues in Sweden. Swedish bandy champions is a title held by the winners of the final. The final is played in March.
The Swedish Bandy Association consisted of 23 district associations until 2013, when these were replaced by 6 larger districts for a more efficient administration. The six districts are Mellansverige (Central Sweden), Nord (North), Stockholm, Småland, Sydväst (South West), and Västergötland.
