A Series consists of eight teams, which play against each other two times during one season.
Each series belongs to a specific league level, the division. The ultimate goal for a team is to climb all levels and become champion in top division.

Promotion and Relegation

Teams in a series face off according to a pre-set fixtures of 14 matches per team played every week. After 14 week, series is concluded and the promotion ranking, a list of all country's active teams, is created. When teams have the same number of points, the tiebraker is goal difference, next goals scored and eventually a draw.

The team which has gained the most points in a series is positioned first and can be promoted automatically or after playing a qualification match

Last two in list with the least points are directly relegated. Teams placed 5th and 6th have to play playoffs against winners of the division below. The teams from the higher division (5th and 6th placed) play at home.

Teams in 5th and 6th place will always play demotion qualifiers.
According to A Hattrick where every match matters, editorial announcing qualifiers for all divisions from then on.

Some examples

Worst ranked no. 5 plays No. 1
Best ranked no. 6 plays No. 1
Worst ranked no. 6 plays Best ranked no. 1 of the bottom half
Best ranked no. 7 replaced by Best ranked no. 1
Worst ranked no. 7 replaced by No. 1

  • In divisions below 6 the rule are slightly different, teams placed 1st and 2nd are directly promoted and teams placed 3rd and 4th play qualifier (check the division page for more details).
  • Top division works different for the fact that obviously one cannot be further promoted, but the champion is enrolled in national hall of fame.
  • Off-season bot teams removal, which takes place the Monday after the qualifiers, may create additional promotion slots. A number of "Lucky Losers" from the teams that lost qualification games is drawn to get promoted and it will not be possible to opt out of this draw.
