Gobstyks Blood Bowl League
Here is all the information on the current season of the Gobstykup and B Kup the two leagues run at Gobstyks, below you'll find fixtures, tables and also some information on our coaches and teams for this season.
History of the Gobstykup
The Gobstykup was created in 2002 in it's initial form as an open league with a play off at the end of the season. The league ran for a number of years before finally fizzling out in 2010.
A New league format was created in 2011 by Septic Bladder, League Commissioner of the Gobstykup. The league went so well that year that it was expanded and continued to grow, but this time the league was fixtured and had a structure so players knew who they were to be facing next and also they committed to playing for the full season.
The B Kup was added in 2012 to the main league so regular players could get more games, and less regular player could still enjoy some one off competitive games without the commitment. A play off was then introduced to the B Kup in 2015 along with the Star Player draft in 2016.
The last update to the B Kup came in 2017 when the decision was made to expand the amount of teams available by adding all the teams from the FUMBBL Secret League, which has been a huge success with veteran players enjoying a whole host of new teams to play with.
The Gobstykshield was introduced in 2017 as a playoff for those at the bottom of the league, giving them something to play for even if the season has not gone their way.
Finally the Karnage Kup was introduced in 2018, which was intended as a league but ended up as a knock out competition. The intention for this tournament was to have highly rated teams with lots of skills to really test the coaches ability with advanced teams that are often not seen in league play at Gobstyks.
Additionally the Stunty Kup will be added in 2020 as a stand alone tournament, previously it has been awarded to the highest finishing Stunty team in the B Kup with no real continued record, this will now change for a Stunty only team tournament to start later this year as Covid restrictions has hindered the introduction of this tournament.
