Ninh explains the Rules of Bandy
The object of the game is for your team to score more goals than the opposing team.
To score a goal, a player must use their stick and shoot the ball into the goal.
Bandy is a European game played with two teams of 16, with 11 players taking to the ice at
any one time. A team must have at least 8 players on the ice at any given time.
Hey Ninh, this looks suspiciously like Ice Hockey, Field Hockey and Soccer?!
Ummm yep! That’s pretty much exactly what Bandy is.
If you take elements of field hockey, ice hockey and football, you get bandy.
The ice is roughly the same size as a football pitch, a maximum of 110m x 65m.
Goals are 3.5m wide and 2.1m high which is similar to field hockey,
But is played on ice, just like ice hockey. Surrounding the goals are the shooting circles,
which form a 17m radius around the goals. These are the free stroke circles, which are
10m in diameter and we’ll talk more about those later. The game starts with a stroke off.
Once a team has possession of the ball, they will try and move the ball towards the opposing
goalkeeper and try and score. You can pass the ball directly between teammates,
or skate and control the ball with either side of the stick, just like in ice hockey.
Unlike ice hockey however, the stick is not curved sideways. So players have to be proficient
in passing and shooting the ball from both the left and the right sides of the stick. The idea is to set up in good position to
be able to shoot the ball towards the goal. The opposing team will try and stop you by
tackling. They are allowed to try and take the ball
away from you and move the ball in the opposite direction so that they can score themselves.
One major rule difference between ice hockey and Bandy is that in Bandy: forceful contact
between players is strictly forbidden – and there are varying degrees of punishment if
you break, this or any of the rules. Breaking the rules may result in a Yellow
Card – which is a warning. A Blue Card – which means that the offending
player has to serve a 5 or 10 minute time penalty.
or a Red Card, similar to football and results in a player being ejected from the game.
Another rule difference, is that in Bandy: the goalkeeper doesn’t have a stick!
He’s the only person who is allowed to catch and throw the ball and can only do that in
his own goal circle. There are many other differences, but those
are the main two you need to know about. The game is usually played in two 45 minute
halves, for a combined playing time of 90 minutes.
In bad weather conditions, the referee can opt to play 3 x 30 minute periods.
Highest score at the end of time wins. That’s basically the gist of it, but there’s
a few other things you’ll need to understand before playing or going to a game. For example: Free Stroke A free stroke is awarded to the other team
if a player breaks one of the rules. Usually, they are awarded for fouls, incorrect
equipment, incorrect procedures, or the ball going out of play.
The ball is hit either 1m away from the sidelines (or more commonly) from the free stroke circles,
depending on the infraction. Corner Stroke Very similar to the short corner in field
hockey – this is awarded if a defender deliberately hits the ball behind their own goal line.
The attacking team places the ball at the corner circle, and the defending team can
put their players behind the goal line. The ball is hit into play and is usually shot
towards the goal immediately. Penalty Shot
If a defender intentionally fouls a player with a legitimate chance to score, a penalty
shot will be awarded to the attacking team. The ball is placed on the ice at the penalty
spot, and just like ice hockey, it’s one shot only.
Any goals scored count towards the overall score. Substitution.
There are unlimited substitutions in bandy, and they can be made at any time except during
a corner stroke. All substitutions must be made within the
designated area. Overtime / Penalty Shootout. If the game is tied after 90 minutes, usually
two extra x 10 minute periods are played to determine a winner. However, some games have the golden goal rule,
where the next goal scored wins the game. For games where a winner must be determined,
a penalty shootout may occur. Team with the most goals after 5 players on
each team shoots the ball … wins. If you’re struggling to understand Bandy,
try watching my other videos on ice hockey, field hockey and football first, and hopefully
this’ll all make sense to you. If you have found this video helpful, please
like, comment share and subscribe. It takes ages to make one of these things
and good karma is very much appreciated. If you’re also on Reddit, you can also post
the video and discuss it there, but in the meantime, enjoy Bandy. Ninh Ly, @NinhLyUK, www.ninh.co.uk

    Seems like an impractically large ice surface. Soccerized hockey with tiny sticks. Given it's played in hockey countries, I can only wonder why a person would rather play bandy.

    Great video and great work. Have been watching your stuff regularly for a while. If you are still looking for new sports I just heard about ringette and wanted to see if you had a video on it. It is a female only ice skating and stick sport done in canada, finland and sweden or so. Although there were some video on it none of them were as good as your videos on sports.
