Hattrick announces

10-21-2020 Summer Time Ends!

On Sunday morning, summer time (Daylight Saving Time) ends, and the clock switches back to standard Central European Time. This means that the hour between 02:00 and 03:00 CET occurs twice. Of course all matches, transfers and so on will happen just once.

10-12-2020 Hattrick Masters Draw!

The Hattrick Masters starts next Monday. The draw for this season's edition will take place today at 15:00 (CET).

9-21-2020 China Wins the World Cup Trophy

Last night, China and Iran played the first ever all-Asia World Cup final, guaranteeing, for the first time in Hattrick history, that a World Cup winner would come from the world's largest continent.

China appeared to control the first half, with multiple chances to take the lead, but Iran's keeper was up to the task and denied every shot. Iran also had an opportunity to claim the lead, but their penalty kick was denied by an excellent save from the China netminder. The two teams went into halftime knotted at 0 - 0.

Iran exited the tunnel at the end of halftime appearing to be the stronger team, but the squad was unable to convert any second-half chances into goals. As is often the case, allowing the opposition to hang around can have dire consequences, and so it was in the final when, with 18 minutes remaining on the clock, China scored to take a 0 - 1 lead.

Both teams forged one more chance each in the closing minutes, but neither converted. When the match clock registered 00:00, China held the one-goal lead, as well as the World Cup championship trophy.

Our congratulations go to China and their manager chenxiaolin!

9-17-2020 Elections Coming Up!

With the World Cup nearing its end (semis tomorrow and final on Sunday), it's also time to elect the next NT coaches.

If you want to become a candidate, you must actively register as one. Registration opens on Friday, and voting starts on Monday and continues for one week.

To become a candidate for an election, you need to have been a manager for at least one season. To vote for a candidate you need to have been active for at least one season. This is in order to reduce various kinds of election abuse.

Let the campaigns begin!

9-15-2020 Series Swapping

As usual, the HFA will allow some teams to swap series at the end of the season:

• The swapping window will be open from Thursday September 17th 00:00 until Friday September 18th 23:59 (CET).
• HTI teams are only able to swap until 16:00 (CET) on Friday 16:00 due to the creation of the matches for the upcoming season.
• You can only swap series if you play in one of the lowest three division levels in your country.
• You can only swap your team with a bot team from your own division level.
• You can only swap once and it can't be undone, so make sure you really want to swap series!

You can swap places with a bot from the series page of the bot. A link will appear after the bot's team name in the series table. Note that you can only swap places with a bot team that has the robot logo, and not with an ownerless team which has not been bot-ified yet.

9-11-2020 Five New Leagues

Big news! Next season, we are adding five new leagues to Hattrick. We welcome Myanmar, Zambia, San Marino, Puerto Rico, and Haiti to our football family!

Myanmar is the most populous country not yet represented in Hattrick, and has won the Asian Games twice, as well as finished second in the more prestigious Asian Cup, in 1968. Zambia is not only the home of Victoria Falls, it is also a recent African Cup winner, back in 2012.

From the Caribbean we welcome Puerto Rico and French-speaking Haiti. Of the two, Haiti has the stronger football credentials, having had a golden age in the '70s, when they qualified for the World Cup in 1974. In Puerto Rico, baseball is the most popular sport, but football is up and coming on the island just as on the U.S. mainland. With Haiti and Puerto Rico, we add the two most populous countries in the Caribbean that did not already have their own leagues.

In Europe, we welcome San Marino. This city-state is of course surrounded by world-class football culture, as it is landlocked inside Italy. San Marino has played official UEFA matches since 1990, when it first tried to qualify for the Euro. To San Marino we say: Benvenuto!

The five new leagues will be the last new leagues before the new World Cup format kicks off early next year, and they will all have a place in that competition.

If you are interested in playing in one of the new leagues with your additional team, make sure to register during this coming weekend - otherwise you may not get a team in time to participate in the Cup draw!

9-3-2020 Wider Design and New Features

The Hattrick team is shaking off the somnolence of summer with a big design release! The core change is that we are literally making Hattrick wider, giving all of us more screen-space to work with. This also means that there is now space in the left menu on every webpage, so it no longer "disappears" on newer pages like the Live Viewer, the Team Analysis page or the Match Order page. Furthermore, we're bringing in a new and slightly larger font on all pages to make the look of "old design" and "new design" pages consistent.

We have also added new functionality to several pages:

* The "Matches' page now has cards on the top, highlighting your most recently played match and your next upcoming match. You can also book friendlies directly from here.
* The Series page has been revamped with new team status boxes, played matches have been re-added to the league table, and more.
* We also added more context info on the Players page along with new sorting options.
* The Transfer Search received many updates. There are new sliders for skill search, filter icons for Specialties, and searches are now autosaved between sessions. Also, your available cash is always shown when you are checking the transfer list.

There are many, many more details to cover, and you can read about all of the changes on our Dev Blog, where we also talk more about the reasons behind why we are doing this.

We hope you will enjoy the refreshed look of Hattrick!
