There are a series of tasks that a coach/manager/club admin needs to perform pre match to submit their team for a fixture. This will article will explain what those tasks are and how to perform these tasks via the Dribl App.

** NOTE – In order to be able to complete the below pre match tasks via the Dribl app, the 3 pre-requisite tasks MUST have been completed prior to the match day for the below process to be possible.

If you have not completed these tasks – please click here to view an article on how to perform these steps:



Find the relevant match & electronic Matchsheet

a) Launch the Dribl app –  ** Ensure you are logged in to the Dribl app as a coach/manager/club admin with Reporter Dribl access (as these are the only roles that can perform these tasks).

b) Click on the Fixtures tab and find the relevant fixture.

Note – If you would like to quickly narrow down the fixture search options, you can do so by clicking on the “Filter” option.

Once you have found the fixture you would like to perform your pre match tasks for – click on that fixture to launch it

c) Select the Match Sheet tab and then click on Home or Away team.

Perform all pre-match electronic Matchsheet tasks

Team Submission deadlines

  • No later than 30 minutes before kick off – Click on Submit team (at this point you can still make changes after submitting your team if need be, until the opposition confirms your team)
  • No later than 10 minutes before kick off – Click on Confirm team *This is to confirm the opposition team selections. No more changes can be made to match sheet once this step has been completed. If you do need to make any last minute change to the match sheet, you will need to request your opposition unconfirm your team, make the relevant changes and then they will need to reconfirm your team. If the opposition refuses to unconfirm your team and you need to make changes – this must be communicated to the referee.

Once you have selected your team (Home or Away) the Availability screen will allow you to define all the below required data fields for that specific match sheet

  1. Specify which Coach(s), Manager(s) and Players will be participating in the given match
  2. Specify who your Goal Keeper(s) (GK) are
  3. Specify if the player is Unavailable for selection on the match sheet (Do not tick – leave as grey unticked circle)
  4. Specify if the player is Available (A) for that specific match, but is not Starting (is on the bench)
  5. Specify if the player is Starting (S) the match
  6. Specify who your Captain (C) is
  7. View, modify or define Jersey numbers
  8. View the Digital ID card a single player or for the whole team
  9. Submit Team (refer to note above for cut off timings)

*Numbers in screenshot below correlate to actions 1-9 above


How to modify any of the match sheet availability fields

Click (long press down) on the participant name you wish to modify, this will launch the Additional Options for that individual.

Select the data field you wish to modify and make the relevant selections


How to “Borrow” players from other teams within your club on match day

The players, coaches and managers that are available for selection on the electronic match sheet are those that you have mapped to that relevant team via the Dribl web admin system.

There may be occasions however that you need to “Borrow” players from other teams within your club on a match day ie call up an under 20s player into the 1st grade team for a match.

To do this simply click on the “+” icon, search for the player you wish to add and add them to the Matchsheet for the given match

How to “Borrow” Staff Members from other teams within your club on match day

You can also borrow any registered staff member at your club for any specific match

This is useful perhaps if you have a physio who is not a permanent member of your staff but needs to be allocated to your match sheet just for that specific match day.

Click on the Borrow icon (Top right hand corner) and then select “Borrow Staff”
