The Blue Alliance

Founded in the fall of 2006, The Blue Alliance began as a website dedicated to providing everyone involved in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) with scouting data and match videos. Since then, the project has grown to include developers from within the FIRST community from various teams all over the world. We continually strive to make The Blue Alliance an even more valuable resource for our users. Other additions to The Blue Alliance include match prediction and analytics, hosting of CAD models, and The Blue Alliance Blog.

Since 2022, The Blue Alliance has been a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We rely on community donations to pay for hosting costs.


FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a non-profit organization with the mission of inspiring young people to be science and technology leaders. With programs that involve students from kindergarten through high school, FIRST has become a world-wide phenomenon with teams from all six inhabited continents.

"To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders."

Dean Kamen, FIRST Founder (FIRST Vision)
