Hattrick announces

7-26-2022 Italy Wins World Cup

Another Hattrick season ended when last Friday the World Cup final was played between England and Italy. Although expectations for the match were high, probably no one had predicted a goal-rich match and where Italy drew the longest straw, 2 - 6. This made them not only a World Cup winner, but also the first nation to win both the Continental Championship and the World Cup in the same term.

Some fans were still not seated yet when the first goal already struck the net, 0 - 1 by the Azzurri. After England had recovered from this shock, they took control in the game and which resulted in a few good chances. However none of them went in. So what happened, the Italians scored again, twice even in a matter of 5 minutes, lifting the score to 0 - 3. This forced England's manager to change tactics in order to regain control over the game. As no more goals were scored during the remaining time until when the referee blew the half-time whistle, he knew he was going to need all time during the break to explain the players his plan for the second half.

15 minutes into the second half and after a few substitutes had entered the pitch, turning the game around became next to impossible when Italy scored 0 - 4. When England scored 1 - 4 some 7 minutes later, it might have sparked little hope, but only 1 minute later the difference was again 4 goals, 1 - 5. Things went from bad to worse, an inury and a red card. Let's not forget another 2 goals, one for each side leading to the end result, 2 - 6. Italy wins the World Cup and England is coming home... without the cup unfortunately.

Congratulations to Italy and their manager ciuffo-fisc.

7-20-2022 Improved Sponsor Rewards

The collective negotiation round between the Hattrick Football Association (HFA) and the Sponsor Consortium of Hattrick (SCH) has now been concluded. The new agreement will bring a general increase of 10 per cent to all bonus payouts. Payouts for current contracts will not be affected. This change applies to the sponsor contracts that teams will be able to pick for next season during the upcoming season break.

In these new contracts, bonuses for any goal achieved will be 10 % higher than it would have been during this current season. The HFA and SCH are in accord that the new agreement offers a better risk/reward balance and plans on the change being permanent.

7-19-2022 Series Swapping

As usual, the HFA will allow some teams to swap series over the close season:

• This swapping window will be open from Thursday the 21st from 00:00 to Friday, July 22nd at 23:59 (CET).
• HTI teams are only able to swap until Friday at 16:00 (CET) 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 places 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 team in the 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 botified yet.

7-1-2022 Stats, Kits, & Shirts

We have two minor releases for Supporters this week, and a smaller update for national teams to go along with them.

First off, a nice Stats bundle for Supporters that includes new player filter for our match event statistics, making it possible to break down team match events down to the player level.

We are also adding new graphs for historical financial data such as salaries and board reserves.

The kit designer gets a small update which includes a new shirt template with a 3D effect, making for a more realistic look.

Finally, we have implemented shirt numbers for national teams, which can be set by the national team coaches as they see fit.

Please enjoy!

6-16-2022 Welcome to the Countdown Ladder

Today, it is 75 days left until our 25 year anniversary. To keep you busy until then, we present the Anniversary Countdown Ladder, a global ladder competition which is free to participate in!

The challenge is simple: Get on the ladder and try to reach, and stay at, the top as we hit anniversary day. Everyone in the Top 10 will be rewarded, but of course no reward can be as satisfying as the honor of being the best in Hattrick on such a historic day.

As with all ladder competitions, the Anniversary Countdown ladder happens outside the regular Hattrick context, so you do not risk injuries or cards when playing these games, and of course training is not affected either.

6-11-2022 Players Want Trophies, Too

Following successful lobbying by the Platinum Supporter’s Council, the Hattrick Football Association has today granted the minting of additional trophies so that also players can have their own trophy cabinet. Trophies will be awarded to every player that played in at least one game for the winning team during the competition.

For managers, there will now be a shelf with trophies for all managed clubs, including trophies won for the national team as for coach or assistant coach.

Bob Sunesson, the HFA high representative, says:
“It is with pleasure that we grant this request in connection with our annual Supporter week, the celebration of the managers that make Hattrick happen. We love all our managers, and it is hard not to want to give our Supporters an extra tight hug sometimes.”

For Supporter week, we have been running a 15% discount on all Supporter packages since Tuesday. The offer is valid until Sunday at midnight CET on June 12.

In other words, you are still on time if you want to extend your subscription, or perhaps qualify for that virtual Bob Sunesson hug for the first time.

The new trophy shelves will be made available at the latest early next week.

5-31-2022 DarthFenuz Masters Winner after Penalty Shootout!

What is more exciting than to see a Hattrick Masters final where both teams give their all in order to put on a good show for their fans who travelled far to see their team play the perhaps most important match of their lives? Last Thursday imparartenia from Italy and DarthFenuz from Guatemala delivered all that and the winner had to be decided by a penalty shootout. DarthFenuz was ultimately the team that made no mistakes here and therefore handed the Hattrick Master Trophy.

In the first half imparartenia appeared to be the stronger team. Not only did they have more ball posession, but also they were able to create some good chances when they had the ball. Fortunately for Darthfenuz their opponents either lacked precision or one of their defenders managed to block the shot. So at half-time break the scoreboard showed the same as when the game started 45 minutes earlier, 0 - 0.

15 minutes later when all players had left their dressing room and back on the pitch again, also DarthFenuz showed their intention to put a ball in the net of their opponents. This almost resulted in a goal some 8 minutes later, but the Italian goalie was attentive. 18 minutes into the second half however it were the Italians to be the first on the scoreboard, 1 - 0, when they found their way through the guests' central defense line. The Guatemalan coach reacted immediately with 2 substitutions. We're not sure if it was because of the substituations or the injury of one imparartenias' starplayers, but with 9 minutes left on the clock, DarthFenuz scored the equalizer, 1 - 1. As no more goals were scored, this meant we had to go into extra time.

After a short break the game continued and 13 minutes into extra time it were the Italians who took the lead again, 2 - 1. To the relief of the guatemalan fans, their team once more scored the equalizer. Despite both teams trying to score a late winning goal, a penalty shootout was the only way to get a winner. Both imparartenia and DarthFenuz alternately scored penalties until it was the fifth turn for the Italians. It was a miss and DarthFenuz did not fail and scored the winning penalty and thus making them the latest Hattrick Masters winner.

Our congratulations go to DarthFenuz and their manager LA-DoctorDestiny!

5-25-2022 “Bob, I Am Your Father”

Hattrick is a game of generations, where we take pleasure from seeing our young prospects grow up and make their mark on the pitch. But their contribution does not always end there - some of those legends end up raising their own kids, children who may find their way to your organization as well. With today’s release, we unveil family links in Hattrick - showing for every new player if they are related to other Hattrick characters. There is no in-game effect on being the brother or son of another player or staff member, but we think it is important to know where you have your roots.

5-12-2022 Training Planner Upgrade

Recently, our Platinum supporters had their yearly vote on which new Supporter feature they would most like to see. This time the winner was a set of improvements to the training planner, which we were happy to implement for them.

With our release today, it will now be possible to create multiple training plans. You will also be able to import players from the transfer list and add them to your training plans, which might be handy if you want to see how a potential new player fits in. Finally, it will now be possible to set custom training minutes in plans, in order to better estimate the training of players who plays only partial matches.

Multiple plans will be available for the Platinum tier and above, the other new features for Gold supporters as well.
We thank all Platinum users for their ideas and input, and we of course hope you will enjoy the new features!

5-4-2022 Player Sneak Peek & Extended Highlights

We have two new features to talk about today! The player sneak peek is a popup with key info about a player that activates when you hover above a player link on the forum, in a chat, or in a press release. You will be able to check name, age, owner, personality, TSI, salary, specialty, form, and stamina without leaving the page you are on. You can also look at skills if the player belongs to you or is currently on the transfer list.

We also added a new extended highlights mode for the match report page. Instead of just seeing goals, injuries, and substitutions, you can now enable extended highlights to see the complete set of chances as well. Once chosen, you can keep this way of seeing highlights as your personal default.

With love from the HT team!

4-29-2022 Joining New Local Circles

It is now possible to join an additional Local Circle. You can also create new ones, in locations where Circles do not exist today.

Joining a second Circle can be handy if you come from one town and live in another, for example. You will still need to be present geographically when joining the new Circle, but you no longer need to leave the former one.

You may also start a Circle where there was previously no active one. When looking for a new Circle in the app, some Circles may show up as inactive. You can join it, but it will need two more participants within 7 days to stay open. You may want to coordinate opening a Circle with some hometown friends to ensure a smooth start.

See you in the Circles!

4-25-2022 Hattrick Masters Draw

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

4-21-2022 New Missions

Our release this week is a new set of Missions, this time targeted at teams that are being managed actively, but that for one reason or another have been stuck without progress for many seasons. You never know when the Board may present you a Mission, and if you get one it will be unknown to the other teams in your series. If it happens, it is up to you to decide if the reward is worth the risk.

4-15-2022 Happy Easter!

As the holiday weekend comes upon us, we want to take the opportunity to apologize for the delays that have been occurring during match days for the past few weeks.

The delays have had several causes: quirks related to the new server, the sheer size of the new Anniversary league, as well as bugs in the new functionality for series selection. Each issue on its own has been manageable, but put together we know they have caused negative feelings for many of you.

We are sorry for this, and believe the worst is now past us.

We would also like to wish all our users an enjoyable Easter weekend. We hope you find all your eggs in time for Easter dinner!

The HT-Team
