Fantapazzo is an italian Hattrick team. It was founded by SuperCash on 20 August 2008, and it has its headquarters in Florence, to be more precise in the nearby town of Campi Bisenzio. Currently it plays in VI.300 of Italian Hattrick Championship.

History

The birth of the team and the first climb

Fantapazzo was born at the end of season 36. SuperCash, during summer 2008, was convinced by AndrewRozza, Marci90 and Tex93 to create a Hattrick team. Thus on 22 August 2010 Fantapazzo was officially born. SuperCash took his first steps in Hattrick world with the help of his three friends and began to make himself familiar with team management. This was the beginning of Fantapazzo's Hattrick adventure.

The team was put in the XI.2236, but at the time of the registration it was just 5 days away from the end of the championship. Fantapazzo won 4 of its first 5 matches and ranked 5th in Season 36. In the meantime SuperCash laid the basis for a competitive team by buying young midfielders and strengthening attack and defense. In addition the Brazilian coach Nelson Nobre was signed.

Thus in Season 37 Fantapazzo dominated the championship and finished with a perfect score, gaining its first historical promotion. With his 12 goals Manuel Cavallo become the first player of the club to win the top scorers award. Meanwhile the team grew further with the signing of the young Piero Bozzi, one of the future most important player of club history.

In Season 38 Fantapazzo played in the X.3104. At the beginning the goal was to avoid relegation, but soon the team led by Nobre proved to be the very best in the league, thanks to the skill-trading policy undertaken by the club, and repeated the previous season success by gaining the promotion in the XI series with a perfect score. The uncontested leader was the Finnish forward Kalle Airola who won the top scorer award hands down with his 21 goals. Fantapazzo took just two seasons to move from XI to IX series.

The end of skill-trading and the second great climb

Fantapazzo met the first difficulties, due to the early promotion in the IX series. The Nerazzurri was afraid of competing against the strong team who played in the IX.1747 and pessimism spread in the club. However only two teams proved to be better than Fantapazzo and the team, led by new coach Tibi Sãftoiu, made a good championship and ranked 3rd in Season 39.

In Season 40 SuperCash decided to change the policy of the club and replaced skill-trading with long-term training. This new policy, much more profitable for seasons ahead, entailed a temporary stalemate in the economy of the club, which had to face transfer market without money. Despite this, the team took advantage of the absence of stonger teams and won the championship, gaining the promotion in the VIII series. At the end of the season Paul King replaced Tibi Sãftoiu.

In Season 41 Fantapazzo played in the VIII.247. The initial goal was to avoid relegation, but the team exploited the first benefits of the new policy to strengthen and won the championship on the last day. The unexpected protagonist of the season was the winger Mario Zumtobel who won the top scorer award with 11 goals. Pessimism wrapped againg SuperCash, who saw in the double promotion a danger of failure.

But in Season 42 Fantapazzo played another great championship and gained the third promotion in a row, despite ranking 2nd in the VII.226. A fantastic achievement for the Nerazzurri, that were able to move from IX to VI series in 3 seasons. In this season Fantapazzo also made its debut in Coppa Italia, where it was eliminated in the 2nd round.

The struggles in the VI Series and the New Frontier

Fantapazzo faced Season 43 with the goal of avoiding relegation. This time the difference with the lower category was bigger and SuperCash's perplexities was supported by the poor results of the team. But despite some large losses Fantapazzo managed to obtain precious points, even with a bit of luck, and avoided relegation, ranking 5th at the end. During the break SuperCash traded many players, strenghtening defense in particular.

The team began Season 44 with the expectations of an easy salvation, but the results wasn't good and Fantapazzo fell into relegation zone. Fortunately the team recovered and left the last two spots, ranking 5th for the second straight time.

In the third season in the VI.300 series Fantapazzo finally struck a balance in this league. The team was more or less the same of the previous season, but this time the results were positive. At the end of Season 45 Fantapazzo ranked 4th, quietly far from the relegation zone it had been so close to in the first two seasons in the VI series.

Back from a quiet salvation SuperCash decided to start a new interesting project called Nuova Frontiera (New Frontier). Because of the economic difficulties, above all due to high wages, every season Fantapazzo needed to sell its best midfielder. With the New Frontier the club began to buy young central defenders and train them in playmaking. Moreover these future midfielders had to be italian in order to pay a lower wage. Thus the first young defenders were bought, together with the first attacking midfielder in the history of the club. In addition Nicola Gasbarro became the first ever youth player to play as first-string in the first team.

In season 46 Fantapazzo permanently occupied the middle-high zone of the ranking. In fact, despite the constant renewal, the team managed to be a match for all the best teams in the league and at the end ranked 3rd.

Same situation in season 47 with the new coach Aadalbert Eesik. The club began to renew also the wingers, enlarging the training fields under the new project regime.

In season 48 the team had a great season and ranked 2nd. Meanwhile the winger renewal was completed and the last trace of skill-trading was definetly erased.

The fight at the top of the VI Series

In season 49, after signing the second attacking midfielder, Fantapazzo improved its last ranking and won the VI series, but got defeated by Cianosky Team in the qualification for the V series.

The Nerazzurri tried again to get the promotion in season 50 driven by the duo Sanson Arbián-Adam Smutný, both winners of the top scorer award with 11 goals per head, but after two loss in the last two matches they finished only 2nd.

Same bad luck in the season 51, wherein some undeserved draws and losses prevented Fantapazzo from getting the direct promotion. Once againg the team was defeated in the qualification match by Inchiumati.

Season 52 was compromised by some negative results in the first days and the nerazzurri couldn't rank higher than 2nd.

The promotion in the V Series looked like a damnation for Fantapazzo, but after several tries season 53 smiles at the nerazzurri which dominate the league and get directly promoted, led by the new coach Fredrik Andersson. The leader in the field was Adam Smutný who scored 11 goals and won his second top scorer award.

The landing in the V Series and the first change of training

After several years of fight for the promotion Fantapazzo finally made their first appearance in the V Series in season 54. It was a strange season with the Nerazzurri shifting from the struggle for the 1st place to the struggle for avoiding relegation. At the end it took a relegation match, easily won against LastButNotTheLast, to stay in the V Series.

Instead in season 55 things were better for the Nerazzurri, that constantly occupied the first three positions and eventually ranked 2nd, very close to the promotion match. This was also the season of the first change of training, from playmaking to passing. The club started to buy players with high primary-skills in order to complete them by training their secondary-skill.

Season 56 was one of the strangest in the history of Fantapazzo. In Coppa Italia the team reached the 64th finals, a hardly repeatable result for the club, whereas in the league they were forced to fight to avoid the relegation match due to unprecedented bad luck. They reached their goal only in the lasy day, along with a disappointing 4th place.
