GT-76 is a Swedish Bandy club from Stockholm who were founded in 1976 when two sport clubs, Gubbängens SK, and Tallen IK merged and created GT-76. This helped GT-76 today to become the biggest Bandy club in the world. GT-76 also includes football, handball and pétanque teams. GT-76 always wears the colors yellow and blue at matches and the keeper often wears either a blue and white or a black shirt. GT-76 bandy play in Division 1 Mellersta which is the midland section of the second tier of Swedish Bandy clubs.The club play all their home matches at Gubbängens Idrottspark.

Children and youths in the club[edit]

GT-76 is the biggest bandyclub in the world largely because every new year the club gets around 150 new members, most of which are children. Children are very important for the club with everyone having to pay a fee for club membership. The youngest children in the Bandyschool (Bandyskolan) are less than 5 years old. Girls may also play in the club, there are a few girlteams but the girls may also play with the boys in mixed gender teams.
