According to Hockey Gods the game of Bandy Ball:

Bandy Ball is played on ice, using a single round ball. Two teams of 11 players each compete to get the ball into the other team’s goal using sticks, thereby scoring a goal. The game is designed to be played on a rectangle of ice-field which is the same size as a soccer field.
