Backup – How to generate ID (Identification) cards for printout

Club AdministratorsCoaches and Managers

There may be occasions where a technical issue prohibits access to the Dribl system (ie a system outage)

As the person with the role of submitting your team(s) match sheet each week (ie Club admin, Team Coach or Team Manager), it is important to be prepared with the required manual backup resources – A printed copy of your team(s):

  1. ID cards => (generate via the instructions below)
  2. Match sheet => https://kb.footballnsw.com.au/kb/backup-generate-team-match-sheet-for-printout/

Having these 2 pieces of backup material printed off and available in your kit bag (keep in a protective plastic sleeve) to utilize on any given match day, will ensure you can still complete the match sheet and player verification processes in order to commence a match if the Dribl system is unavailable due to any technical issues.

Please Note: This process only needs to be completed once per season  (not every week).
