Luxembourg (Lëtzebuerg in local language) is a Western European country, the 73th nation to join the Hattrick World.

Geography.png The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is landlocked country in Western Europe surrounded by België, France and Deutschland. Its capital, Luxembourg City, is one of the four official capitals of the European Union. Foreigners account for nearly half of the population of over 600 thousand people in a total area of 2,586 km², which makes it one of the least-populous countries in Europe, but by far the one with the highest population growth rate.


History

  • Luxembourg has got its own league since February 2004 (efore this date, Luxembourg users had to play in the surrounding countries). It was one of the eight new leagues created during global season 22.
  • The translation in the national language of Luxembourg was completed on 19 October 2007, thus making Hattrick the first game ever to be available into Luxembourgish, though official languages are not only Luxembourgish, but also German and French (all three of them, together with English, can and have to be used on the national forums).
  • Luxembourg is currently divided in 12 regions, intended to reproduce the twelve cantons of the real nation. It wasn't always like that, as the country was created with only 7 regions; the major change did happened in local season 13: Iechternach, Miersch, Réiden, Réimech and Veianen were added and new and old regions were given their name in Luxembourgish, whilst two out of them, the former Gutland and the former Ösling were given names corresponding to the ones of cantons.
The most populated region is historically Luxembourg, but, due to good timing in accounts creation, teams from Dikrech dominated the first two divisions in the early days.
  • The country grew on a relatively slow and constant base and nearly reached the upper limit of users (168 for all countries starting with 3 divisions); so a division 4 began to be filled by the end of June 2005, before the start of local season 5, expanding the total capacity to 680 teams.
On February 2007 the country reached 400 users for the first time ever. During February 2009, it reached 500 users for the first time, and, by the end of 2014, there were 600 users playing in 4 divisions, which was near the capacity allowed, but also the maximum expansion before the start of a quick decrease in the number of users.
At the end of 2019 the active accounts were only 250.
  • The country has not hosted any World Cup yet.

Book of Records

  • The first 2 users ever joined the game on 1 February 2004, although both left the game very quickly: the Ocean Dragons, owned by masako, was clossed during season 10; Neonn just left during season 1.
  • Only 25 teams founded during 2004 remain after 5 years (February 2009). The 3 oldest teams still active were: Jeunesse Champion, Belair Allstars and FC Jeunesse Kanech.
  • For a long time, Spora was the team with the most wins, league and cup wins combined, holding four league and three cup wins. They also held the most league wins alone and the title of the most cup wins together with Luxembourg Soccer Club.
  • Spora's reign was long over after FightClub Football Club managed to take the first place in the race towards the most titles, holding nine national titles. Then FightClub comes first also in the number of cup wins. Masters 10 was their moment of international glory, when they reached the final of the tournament as the first team ever from Lëtzebuerg and were only beaten by Venezuelan champions of beltxis in the penalties shoot-out.

Staff

At the beginning, Luxembourg was under the surveillance of foreign staff. Mod-beppo and Mod-Bilbo (before he became a GM) kept an eye on conferences.

As the country grew, an own Mod soon became a necessity. Thereforesevysak became Mod on 6 January 2005 (he left this position on 1 July 2006). The new Mod is Karlthegreat, who had already been an LA for Germany (in September 2013 he stopped his Mod and LA job). In October 2013 Maya29 became Mod, shortly later LA-cejot1986 and LA-Superjhemp joined the team to keep the luxembourgish language alive.
