I have been playing Blood Bowl since 1995. Ran a few tabletop leagues and had a basic web based roster editor thing helping me to do this.

I tried playing on the OLBBL for a while but didn't quite feel the bbirc was something for me and I pretty much stopped playing online for a few years.

In the first half of 2002, I came across talkbloodbowl.com and my interest in playing online ignited again. I tried Ronald Loker's PBeM client but found it to be too much work sending the files back and forth.

Then I found JavaBBowl. This client was something completely different than the other things I had tried. However, there were no online leagues I could find using this excellent client. So, I set about to create one by developing a tool I could use to keep track of teams and schedules called LeagueManager. After two attempts at running scheduled tournaments without much success, I began working on designing a web based system.

This was around december 2002 and I got word that a guy calling himself Mr-Klipp wanted to talk to me about him also working on the same thing. We got in touch and decided to pool our resources. and about a month later - January 3, 2003 - The FUMBBL site came out of the test phase and has been running since then.
