Star Players are particularly famous pro Blood Bowl players (also known as "Characters") who are available for hire as "free agents" by Blood Bowl teams.

In previous editions of Blood Bowl, Star Players could be permanently hired as part of a team's roster. However, the Blood Bowl Competition Rules v6 do not permit teams to hire Star Players as part of their regular rosters. Instead, Star Players may be hired at a large cost on a one turn basis.

Over the years, several Star Players have come and gone as the game of Blood Bowl has evolved. Several have since been retired. The Blood Bowl Competition Rules v6 pleased long time fans of the game by bringing back many beloved Star Players from earlier versions of the game. However, other famous players remain retired, and may never make a return to the game of Blood Bowl. That said, several Leagues have developed special rules for allowing fan favorite retired Star Players for playing in the game.
