The hatsticks team

Hatsticks (also called The Hatsticks Project) is the official term for a HT-community-based project which revolves around collecting and exchanging stickers of HT-players in online albums. The concept was created by vivastpauli who could finally complete his idea with the start of the new HT-design in December 2008. He built a Panini-style presentation of his own team for which he received a lot of positive feedback. With the feeling of a promising idea the Hatsticks Federation was founded on the 6th February 2009. Soon after the opening he teamed up with allsports who took care of the online platform which made the interaction between sticker collectors from all over the world possible. The pilot project "GREECE 2009" caused a huge hype with a viral effect in the entire HT-community and made Hatsticks famous overnight.


The code system

During the time period of a running project a certain amount of codes is released every day within the Press Announcements of vivastpauli or allsports, usually between 0:00 and 0:30 Hattrick Time. To enlarge the hype even more, easter eggs were included, in the form of codes that people had. After using the codes on the website you receive a certain amount of stickers per code. It's random which stickers are allocated to the sticker packs. Therefore all stickers have the same, objective value.

  • Daily codes: The daily codes are regular codes which are accessible for everyone. Normally they have 6-digit structure with 4 letters and 2 numbers.
  • Federation codes: Additionally to the daily codes a federation code is published as a bonus for members of the federation.
  • Easter Egg codes: The world of Hatsticks also bears some Easter Eggs, so there are given hints sometimes to unlock them. They contain about half the amount of regular codes.

The trade system

After some time of filling your album you reach the point where you get doubles of already received stickers. There's a special section on the website where you can offer them for stickers you don't have yet. Try to find trade partners the HT-forums, there are exchange topics in:

  • Global forums: The 4 main forums for English, French, Spanish and German speaking users usually have large attendance.
  • National forums: There are special exchange threads in many national forums for first language speakers without knowledge of the above ones.
  • Federation forum: The federation forum contains a lot of trade activity since it's focused on Hatsticks.

Full album

At the end of each project the collectors with a full album are able to download a file with a printable version of all album pages.
