The Dutch national bandy team represents the Netherlands in the sport of bandy.

The team made its international championship debut at the 1913 European Bandy Championships in Davos, Switzerland. However, the Netherlands did not compete in the annual Bandy World Championship for men before the 1990s, even if bandy actually has been played more or less regularly in the Netherlands since the early 20th Century.[1] The Netherlands participated in their first World Championship tournament in 1991 and has been attending the tournaments regularly since the 2003 championship.

On 6 January 2014 the Dutch won a four nation tournament in Davos, a centenary celebration of the European Championship of 1913. The other teams were Czech Republic, Hungary, and Germany.[2][3]

The current team is controlled by the Bandy Bond Nederland.
