The Hattrick International league works in part similarly to other countries, but it has neither regions nor national teams.
Countries in Hattrick
Besides, a country in the game not necessarily matches a real world country, as demonstrated by Oceania, for example.
Two conditions should be fulfilled to get an own league:
- A country has to be a member of the FIFA in order to join Hattrick.
- Enough users want to join or able to enter the league. Some users from this country or territory have to play Hattrick already and ask the HTs via their GMs to create the league.
If a country or territory isn't represented in Hattrick, there are a few possible reasons:
- A country or territory is simply not populated enough to join Hattrick.
- The territory is unlikely to join Hattrick as it's dependent of a metropole and its metropole is a part of Hattrick. Some of these territories are then regions of the metropole, like Nederlandse Antillen en Aruba for Nederland. Most of them are unlikely to ever join Hattrick as a separate league.
- Although a country is a member of FIFA and there are users from this country playing Hattrick via other countries or interested in playing Hattrick, it isn't a part of Hattrick. The most obvious reason is that it simply wasn't added as the HTs only add a few countries each time they add countries and the possible users have to be patient.
- Comments on the addition of new countries made by the HTs.
