Estonian national bandy team competed for the first time during the first period of Estonian independence, in the interwar years 1918–1940. Estonia played six international frendlies against Finland between 1923 and 1934,[1] losing them all.[2]

Estonia was occupied by the Soviet Union in 1944 and regained its independence in 1991. The modern Estonian Bandy Association was founded in 2001 and joined the Federation of International Bandy in 2002.

The re-established national bandy team participated in the annual Bandy World Championship for men for the first time in 2003[3] and will make its debut in Division A at the 2016 Bandy World Championship.
