Bandy to the Olympics

Bandy will instantly expand the winter sports universe inside and outside the present Winter Olympic Universe.

For the Sports Programme to become constitutive it needs to capture those sports in the geographies and demographics that actually involve in winter sports in a meaningful way. This is in the Sub Arctic Climate Zone.

The majority of the current Olympic Disciplines do not have Universal reach. Rather Winter Olympic Disciplines are driven by regional or national heritage traditions in districts in the west. Real ongoing activity should according to the Olympic Charter (OC) capture the five continents (3rd and 6th Principles). In practical terms for winter sports, the OC 1973 edition said 25 nations on 3 continents. There were even dissimilar OC rules. New sports had to reach it. Those on the Programme got 8 years. Dissimilar rules do not align well in a competition. Most of them have yet not reached it.

The problem is, only ice hockey and alpine skiing have reached the 45-year-old requirement. Some have reached 2 continents, but still, there are 5 Disciplines that remain on one continent. In many of the leading nations in the west, winter sport on snow is conducted in scarcely populated wintry regions, and not in the entire country.

In winter sports the practical approach would be to embrace the missing wintry geographical dimensions of the world. This missing link is Eurasia, key regions in the Nordics and to unleash the huge ice hockey and ball-sports potential elsewhere.

Bandy will clearly strengthen the Games. Bandy has real ongoing activity on 3 continents. Bandy captures the world heritage of ball-sport. Bandy will as an important heritage sport fill out the missing link in Eurasia, major regions in the Nordics and unleash the ice hockey and ball-sports potential

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
