History[edit]

Bohemia, then a part of Austria-Hungary, was in its own right an early member of the Ligue International de Hockey sur Glace, which administrated ice hockey and bandy in the years before the First World War.[1] Austria-Hungary national bandy team participated in the 1913 European Bandy Championships.

The Czech Association of Bandy was founded in 2013 and became a member of the Federation of International Bandy in 2014.

On 6 January 2014 the Czech Republic participated in a four nation tournament in Davos, a centenary celebration of the European Championship of 1913. The other teams were the Netherlands, Hungary, and Germany.[2][3][4]
