Watching a bandy match is great fun. The sport, a precursor to ice hockey but with more players (11 to a side) and less fighting, has grown massively popular since the rise of the Hammarby team in the late ‘90s. The season lasts from November to March; you can buy tickets at the gate.
There’s a round vinyl ball instead of a puck, and the rules are similar to football, except that you hit the ball with a stick instead of kicking it. Bring a thermos of kaffekask – a warming mix of coffee and booze.
