Bandy was the first team sport, for which a Finnish championship was contested. This was in early 1908 (while the first Finnish championship in association football were played later the same year). The league and the championship are administrated by Finland's Bandy Association.
Finnish Workers' Sports Federation had its own Finnish bandy championship tournament 1924–1955.
Winners through the years
- No official Finnish bandy championship was arranged in 1942, but an unofficial "war time league" was played. IFK Helsingfors won this.
