Using OBBLMFacebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

OBBLM is the Online Blood Bowl League Manager, and is the mostly widely used way of managing the teams and statistics for your tabletop Blood Bowl league.  There is a wiki for how to install it and use it, but this page is the NAF’s attempt to simplify the process as much as possible to help out as many leagues as we can!

There is now a helpdesk available on

Once you have installed it, or if you just want to know how to use it as a regular coach, read all about entering a match etc.

If you want to get online, you have 3 main options, depending on how comfortable you are with making changes to websites:


  1. Use
  2. Sign up for
  3. Install OBBLM on your own existing webpage

NAF – Hosted OBBLM

Getting a league hosted by the NAF is simple.  We don’t check you’re a NAF member, but it would be polite!  Simply go to and Register, then Click on Home > Request league, and one of our admin team will be in touch.  For help using NAF OBBLM once you’re in, check out this guide – Using NAF OBBLM.

For $5 a year you can get your own OBBLM site, hosted by, which comes with OBBLM installed.  You can then configure the code for this site either through the online File Manager or through ftp access, and the NAF Admins or the OBBLM creators can help with this process.  This will allow you to have your own picture at the top and your own title to the webpage, for example.  You can be guided through the process here.

Installing OBBLM

The code for OBBLM is freely available, and you can install it on your own webspace.  You can then make any changes you want to the code to allow for house rules, different displays, and anything else you are able to programme!  The NAF has substantially developed OBBLM into NAFLM, and you can see here for full details.

    When first downloading OBBLM, I used the Wiki/User Guide link from here, then clicked on “Downloading OBBLM”.
    Installation didn’t work, because of a known issue (now fixed) with header.php file (more info :

    It seems the nicholasmr repository is not maintained anymore, but there is a fork called theNAF which is.
    To avoid such issue for new people downloading OBBLM, I think it would be nice to get a link here to download the OBBLM file directly from theNAF fork. Would it be possible to add it here ?

    Hi all. I already use OBBLM hosted via Mercury. But how do I get the site updated with the new NAF interface improvements? Are these live yet of course too? Cheers – NickJMereel

    Hi I’m new on this.

    Oh Noes! The league administration module has failed the ptid!=stid check. Please alert your administrator!

      Hi Julio

      This error occurs if you’re trying to set up your league preferences before creating a division and tournament. I recommend the step by step instructions packaged with the release sann linked to above 🙂

    Hello! I have chosen to host my own OBBLM website however I am having some issues figuring out the address to run install/upgrade scripts from the mercuryvps webserver. Is there someone knowledgeable and patient enough to walk me through some of the basics? Currently my website is

    My league have started using this (at last) and the coaches have so many questions! Whilst I can answer them all is there a coach user guide anywhere? Google searching for OBBLM User Guide brings up the installation and set up guides, but I cant find anything aimed at the players.

    I’m trying to get my head around some of the admin tools. It seems mostly intuitive, and I can work out how to add SPPs and other stuff to bring in an experienced team. But can I differentiate SPP in to the various categories (ie: TD/Int/Cas/etc)? Also, how do I / can I add injuries to a player manually via the admin?
