A lot has happened with our computers, screens and web behaviour since 2000, and we have to realize that the design is simply not up to today’s web standards anymore. And to be totally honest, it’s not only about age – there are also other problems with our current design, especially navigational ones. It is time to give our current look a very well deserved retirement.'''

'''In this editorial we will point out some of the problems we’ve found with our old design, the sole reasons for the retirement. We will naturally also say some words about our work with the coming new design, which is just a few months away.'''

Our new costume should have a modern look and it should fit well with people's ordinary web behaviour. It should have a good structure with a logical navigation. It's also important to keep the Hattrick feeling to it, so don't expect anything extra ultra cool and flashy. That said, we know that retiring a design which so many of you are really used to may be hard in the beginning. But even if you will not fall in love with the new design at first sight, we are convinced that it will not take long before you do. We will show you some examples of the new design and listen to what you have to say about it during the way to the retirement day, to make the switch a little bit less sudden. And if you ever feel you need to see the old design again after the retirement, you can always visit the museum where we will put it together with the original design from 97.
