Football Tasmania and Dribl combine to manage clubs in the state


Football Tasmania has partnered up with Dribl, a competition management system for all clubs and associations along with other multifunctional aspects to improve grassroots football.

Dribl was founded in 2016 due to a lack of technological advancements within grassroots football by a group of footballers and football administrators, with their purpose being to develop and improve the grassroots ecosystem of football in Australia. They offer an integrated digital football system built to provide optimal value through its cloud-based platform for all users.

Other state associations and many member federations in Australia have transitioned to Dribl and currently their preferred competition management system. Capital Football and Football NSW also use Dribl since the 2022 season, with over 300,00 active users using it to administer different elements of their respective competitions. The immense value and popularity of the system also prompted South Australian Football Federation to jump on to Dribl later this year.

Football Tasmania Acting CEO David Smith speaking on the partnership said via press release:

“Dribl is a proven competition management system designed for football. We know it will make it easier for clubs to administer the season, and for participants and fans to follow the season by viewing matches, standings, statistics, and results,” he said.

“We are always looking for ways to improve the management of our competitions, and we look forward to a successful partnership with Dribl.”

Dribl CEO Rob Georgievski added via press release:

“Our partnership with Football Tasmania gives us the opportunity to provide our unrivalled football management solutions to all participants of our game throughout the state of Tasmania. Our centralised, innovative platform continues to trailblaze football across all levels, delivering efficiencies, integration and comprehensive digital solutions to the football community. We are proud to continue our vision of connecting grassroots football across the country.”

This partnership and the incorporation of Dribl will make it easier for keeping up with the football season in Tasmania, along with aiding club administrators, members, and volunteers in managing the daily activities of the club.

Along with rolling out training to all clubs across the state, Football Tasmania also will hand out a “how to” information manual to make the transition easier for all clubs and other stakeholders.
