Djurgårdens IF was one of the teams playing at the Nordic Games in 1905, where the team lost the final to Uppsala HK. The club has been in the Swedish championship finals seven times, and won two of them, in 1908 and 1912. The 1912 champions title was shared with IFK Uppsala since the weather was too warm for a rematch.
Djurgården play their home games at Spånga IP since some years back. After the 2006–07 season, Djurgården advanced to Allsvenskan, the second highest league in Swedish bandy, but has since been relegated to Division 1 again. At the end of the 2013–14 season, Djurgården narrowly missed the qualification to Allsvenskan played in Division 1 in 2014–15. In the 2015–16 season, Djurgården will play in Allsvenskan.
