The Mongolian national bandy team took part in its first Bandy World Championship in 2006. They won the 1st match against Estonia, but lost all subsequent games including the match for the 4th place in Group B against the Netherlands. Mongolia thus was classified fifth in the B Group championship, ahead of only Estonia.[1]

In 2011, when bandy for men was on the programme at the Asian Winter Games, they chose only that tournament, where they finished 2nd, because of financial difficulties to participate in both. After that the team was not financed and didn't play for a few years.

During the season of 2013-14 the team gathered again for the World Championship 2014,[2] where they finished sixth (out of nine) in Group B.[3]
