After a long time with no organised bandy in Germany, the German Bandy Association (Deutscher Bandy-Bund) was established in June 2013 and the new national bandy team was formed in September 2013. In January 2014 the German team participated in the four nation bandy tournament in Davos, Switzerland, a centenary celebration of the 1913 European Championship. The other teams were Netherlands, Hungary, and Czech Republic.[1][2] Germany made its debut in the World Championship in Irkutsk 2014. Before that they played a friendly match against the team of Obukhovo[3]

19-20 September 2015 the team took part in a rink bandy tournament in Nymburk.[4] The team also participated at the 2016 Davos Cup.[5]

At the World Championship in 2016, the team won Division B and as a consequence thereof debuted in Division A at the 2017 tournament, where they finished 7th, thereby qualifiyng for 2018.
