FIB HISTORY

The International Bandy Federation (FIB) was founded on February 12, 1955 during the Congress in Stockholm by four founding countries:

  • Norway
  • USSR
  • Finland
  • Sweden

 

The name was from 1957 “The International Bandy Federation.” At the Congress in Budapest/Hungary in 2001 the name was changed to “Federation of International Bandy” according to a request from IOC the same year, with reference to our approval as “recognized sport”. The acronym IBF was occupied.

Netherlands joined the FIB on February 22, 1973, the USA on February 11, 1981, Canada on July 6, 1983, Hungary on February 4, 1989, Germany on January 29, 1990 (in March of 1991 it voluntary left FIB), Russia on June 6, 1992 (as a successor of the USSR), Kazakhstan on February 6, 1993, Belarus on February 5, 1999, India, Mongolia and Estonia on July 5, 2002, Italy on October 26, 2003, Kyrgyzstan on February 3, 2005, Latvia and Poland on January 31, 2006, Australia, Switzerland, Serbia and Ireland on June 4, 2006.

 

The FIB goals are as following: to promote the overall development of bandy in various countries worldwide; to carry on propaganda for the sports importance and advantages; to set up international competitions, rules of the game, and rules for players behaviour on the ice; to arrange official world championships and other international events; to promote the introduction and the membership of new nations to FIB.

Hi there! Somalia was first queued among the countries that showed interest in participating this year.

The question of a third tier has not been discussed what I know. Perhaps something that a national federation may propose to FIB congress or to the technical committee.

Why not organize 3rd tier?

why not Belarus?

Federation of International Bandy

TODAY FEDERATION OF INTERNATIONAL BANDY LAUNCHED THE NEW WEBSITE ON WWW.WORLDBANDY.COM!
Interesting content, easy navigation and quick updates is our ambition! As editor and administrator of the website I will do my best to achieve these ambitions!
If you have ideas for content, news or want to leave your comments, you can send message here on Facebook or an e-mail to kjellanderstedt@gmail.com.

Our "game plan" is to start with this current website and develop it with new content, images and video clips. Soon we will, for example, start a series of interviews with interesting people in the bandy world. It can be FIB officials, players, leaders, referees and other exciting people in the family of bandy.

At the World Championships in Vänersborg in two weeks, we are in place to provide reports and pictures from matches, updated results after each match and current tables

Best regards!
Kjell Anderstedt, FIB
