FUMBBL or officially FUMBBL - Online Blood Bowl League is a Blood Bowl Online community [1] over 87000 registered members [2] launched on the 18th of August 2003 [3]. Registered users play Blood Bowl games on the Java Fantasy Football Client or FBB for short. A average of around 200 games are played each day; as of July 2019 2524566 games have been played.

FUMBBL is a non-profit community as the site itself does not run advertisements [4] because of the bad aspects of it, Christer Kaivo-Oja said “I want FUMBBL to be a place where users aren't subjected to all this nonsense.”[4]

History[edit]

The website itself was created in January of 2003 by Christer Kaivo-Oja on the url of https://fumbbl.com and soon garnared members of the initial release of integrating JBB aka Java Bowl.[5]

The development of the current Java Fantasy Football client can be dated back to February of 2010 by client Creator Georg Kalimar[6] through a series of blog posts summarising it’s development. The client was introduced to FUMBBL on the 18 of September 2012.

Website[edit]

The domain itself is hosted on the web hosting serviced called Gandi.net and the site registered on the 12 of December 2002[7]. The website itself has many features created by the user base through its long history as well as features designed to improve the users experience on FUMBBL.

The website came under fire in the summer of 2009 when founder Christer Kaivo-Oja received a letter from Games Workshop Group PLC on infringements of Games Workshop Limited’s Intellectual Property Rights. This was after 10 years and the large user base was outraged by this. From November of 2009 all Games Workshop related property has been mostly removed and banned. [8]
