Hungary national bandy team is competing for Hungary in the international bandy tournaments.

History[edit]

Austria-Hungary national bandy team participated in the 1913 European Bandy Championships but it is uncertain if there were any Hungarian players.

Hungary national bandy team made its international debut in the Rossiya Tournament 1990 in Novosibirsk, Soviet Union.

Hungary made its world championship debut in 1991,[1] but the team has so far not reached any medals. On 6 January 2014 Hungary came in second in a four nation tournament in Davos, a centenary celebration of the European Championship of 1913. The other teams were Netherlands, Czech Republic, and Germany.[2][3]

Following the withdrawal by Canada, Hungary will take its place in Division A at the 2018 WCS, [4] marking the first time Hungary will compete in the elite division, after Division B was created.
