Random Support! is a whimsical federation (AllianceID: 41190) founded April 22, 2006 by USA user joshito.


With the advent of extra supporter slots, this fed will select an unknown person every few days or week and everyone will join in to support some random team.

Target generation

Old way

As of the latest expansion (adding Uman and Al Yaman, and expanding España, France, Rossiya, Cyprus, FYR Macedonia, and Crna Gora), there are 1440464 teams in Hattrick. So a list of potential team ID's can be generated by looking for numbers between 1 and 1440464 at random.org. The first team found with supporter (so we can sign their guestbook and let them know they're being randomly supported!) is chosen.

New way

There's a handy little link at http://websec.science.uva.nl/~lhoek/random.php that does this nice and simply.

Special selections

There have been occasional non-random selections on special occasions. The most recent was the support of hlupak's Atlin AFC, winner of Gumby's Botcup II. The federation had offered the support of its members as part of the prize.
