Bandy World Cup

The Bandy World Cup is held every year in Ljusdal in Sweden. 2009 - 2011 it was played indoors in Sandviken until Ljusdal get their indoor arena. This is not played by national teams but is for bandy clubs from around the world, and should therefore not be confused with the Bandy World Championships.

The tournament was first held in 1974 and has been called the World Cup since 1980. The full name of the cup has changed over the years, partly because of different sponsors. The first two years it was called DAF-cupen, then Dex-cupen 1976–1979 and Dex World Cup 1980–1983. 1984–1985 it was simply called World Cup Ljusdal. 1986 SJ became sponsors, so it was SJ World Cup 1986–1998. Then Ljusdal World Cup until 2001 and since 2002 it has been known as the Bandy World Cup, in 2005 additionally as Polar Bandy World Cup, since 2006 as ExTe World Cup Bandy.
