Elitserien seasons

Elitserien is the top-tier of bandy in Sweden since 2007. The second season was played October–March 2008–09.

League table[edit]

Each team meet every other team twice during the season, so 26 rounds are played all in all.

The top eight teams went on to the quarter-finals in the play-off for the Swedish championship. Teams eleven and twelve had to play a qualifying round against teams from Allsvenskan to stay in Elitserien, while teams 13 and 14 were relegated without the possibility to re-qualify for Elitserien until next year.
