Welcome to the forum thread for Season XCVI.

SWL approaches the hundred with season XCVI, twenty years of promotion and relegation, aiming for the Premier title. So much history, so many champions, perhaps your team will be the future champions!?

If you want to change teams, or join the league don't hesitate to write a PM to swladmin or Wozzaa. The trial of Blood is kicked off but late drafting is still available and the new season kicks off APRIL 3!

Team Redrafts for those staying on (posted below as divisions finish up) are to be completed by Saturday the April 1st of January by 8pm. After that time, they may be done for you by admin, and good luck with that. Trial of Blood teams get a bit longer, but get your games in so we can sort your teams out for reggies.



Season XCVI
  • Schedule
    First round will begin on Monday the 3rd of April with a round 7 deadline on the 29th of May!

  • Structure
    We will likely have 1 Premier, 3 Conferences, and 2 Regional divisions. This is subject to change as league numbers change.

New Rules
  • Forfeit wins will gain 2 randomly placed MVPs (in the form of 2x4 added SPP), and 1d6 x 10k gold. For end of season tiebreakers, a forfeit win counts as a 1-0 victory.
  • Star players continue to be published and join the league at short notice, their special skills are in full effect, expect for the big Krox yet.

Recently Implemented
  • Changes to the Rock, Paper & Scissors system to help with league balance. Details available at #Announcements in the discord.
  • Players thrown by TTM or KTM, who only hit opposing players, do not cause a team turnover.
  • Star players paid to play for both teams, will play for neither.
  • Regionals promotion / relegation changes.

General Reminders
  • Axing
    Site PM to the swladmin FUMBBL account by 10pm Monday SWL (Sydney) time if your game has not yet been played.

  • General
    Please be aware that we rely on individual coaches to be active in checking this forum, arranging games against opponents, and in communicating with Admins. The responsibility is on the coach to enquire, not the Admins to inform. Please feel free to ask any questions, any time.

  • Communication
    Please respect each others time and reply to PMs in a timely manner, even if just to say when you'll reply in full. Not everyone uses the discord regularly, site PMs still rule. If your opponent hasn't checked fumbbl, try a ping on discord.

  • Discord channels
    There are division channels in the league discord, where the axeman can fairly adjudicate any forfeits, rather than DMs that are rather more opaque. If your opponent doesn't respond on discord, well, fumbbl site PMs are also good.

  • BB20 Rule Amendments
    We will endeavour to maintain our rules as close as possible to those of BB20 in regards to FAQ and Errata changes, taking into account the nature of our league. Rules not yet implemented in the client or website are normally considered sleeping rules, and can be expected to be applied as they are enabled. We are managing manual seasons in the meantime.

    Our agents fees are 15k per season, ignoring the player's first three post-season redrafts (including the Trial of Blood for those who played it). Player agent fees will be listed in due course here, along with redraft budgets.

Welcome all the new and returning coaches, good luck for the season!

If you have any questions whatsoever about joining the league, don't hesitate to pm me or swladmin or send me a message on discord and I'll help you out.

(credit to HaruHaru for writing the text above, I'm just the copy-paste monkey, but feel free to message either of us as above)

Rerdaft budgets for the coming SWL season, and agents fees for the older teams. Team Value lower down must not exceed your cap after adding your agent fees for players you kept. No skills or team Rerolls may be added until after game 1 next season.

Does this affect SWL?


I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.

It does not affect SWL.


Our ruleset is separate, and that's where the option lies.
