AC Poudre Rafters
AC Poudre Rafters is currently a team in Division V.251.
This club first came into existence on September 23, 2000. It was when the Hattrick world decided to expand into the United States at the start of the eleventh season. It was founded and placed in division IV.37 and initially controlled by a computer. The club took the name of Missouri to show the region it represented at the time. In June of 2001 a human owner was granted license for the club and changed their name to legend. This owner quickly lost interest and the club was again made available for an active user. On July 21, 2001 the user lostorf put a bid in for the club. He was granted ownership on July 24, 2001 and he promptly moved them to his hometown of Fort Collins, Colorado. The club took the name of the local river and became the Cache la Poudre Raters. The club initially intended for the club to be known as the Rafters, but a mistake at the printing offices and probably poor penmanship the team was tagged as Raters. This name didn't generate a strong identity for the local fans so the name was changed in September of 2001. So there would be no confusion, the name was mostly changed and became AC Poudre Rafters. It is the name the team still retains.
