Online Blood Bowl League Manager (OBBLM) is an internet package mainly written in PHP & MySQL programming language and available under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). Online Blood Bowl League Manager allows you to easily manage your blood bowl leagues tournaments, games, teams, players, skills and much more.


The project was started to fit the needs of Jystrup Blood Bowl League (JYBBL). JYBBL's earlier solution was a web site with static web pages written in HTML. Niels Justesen, league commissioner of JYBBL, wanted to create a dynamic web site with automatic database updates. Nicholas Mossor Rathman became a part of the project in the early beginning to lead the programming part.

At the moment OBBLM is being developed further mainly by Nicholas Mossor Rathman with support of Niels Justesen, but more leagues are beginning to install OBBLM, and this results in design changes and implementation of house rules. In later releases, it will be possible to select which house rules a league wants to use, by marking boxes in the user interface.
