Tournaments are an apart from leagues alternative competition system for clubs. They can be official tournaments or run by the managers themselves.

The original concept was first developed externally in Hattrick Open before being incorporated into the official website through Hattrick Gears one year later, in 2012.

In a tournament, every manager can use the regular squad as in an official game, but players cannot get injured and cards do not affect your regular league or cup games.

You can play in competitions managed by your own or try official tournaments: you can join official Ladders to become the King of the Hill and Division Battles to play in collaboration with your series managers.

Own tournaments

You have to be a Gold or Platinum supporter to create a tournament. The creator decides size, name, etc and then invites managers to the tournament. Gold and Platinum Supporters can join in for free, and others can also join in through Hattrick Gears. When the tournament is full, it will start automatically and a forum for the tournament will be created as well.

If the tournament is not full 72 hours before the first match should start, the start day will be postponed one week to the following Monday.

Tournament matches are played once a week, on Mondays, and you can participate in one tournament at a time. If you are knocked out of a tournament, you are free to join another one.

Battles are a great addition to the community since season 73.

Generation Trophies

Introduced in global season 66 (then improved a few seasons later), Generation Trophies is an international competition where managers face off against other teams that got started in Hattrick around the same time as themselves. It is played during off-season.

Division Battles

Division Battles bring the managers in a series together around a common goal, so they have an excuse to discuss and plan things together in their chats and forums. The

Through Division Battles every manager can compete together with other members of your series to establish yourselves as the strongest series of your division.

Rules

Tournament matches have no effect on your team or your players after match. Players don't get any training or experience from these matches, nor do matches have any effect on formation experience, team spirit and so on.


Note that:
- you can still play regular friendly matches every week even if you play in a tournament.
- there are no effects after match.


Matches
Matches are played on neutral grounds and they don't give you any income from spectators (and no new members to your fan club).
All tournament matches use the same match data as regular matches. So your players' current form, skills, experience, injury status etc on the match day will be used. There are two exceptions though: team spirit (and confidence) is set to a fixed value and cards work differently.
Team spirit
Team spirit is set to a fixed level (content) in tournament matches.
Team confidence
Confidence is set to a fixed level (wonderful) in tournament matches.
Injuries
No injuries will occur in tournament matches, but any injured player in "normal" Hattrick will not be able to play.
Training
Players don't get any training from tournament matches.
Experience
Player don't gain any experience from playing tournament matches.
Formations
Your current formation experience in "normal" games is also used for tournament matches. However, you do not gain any formation experience from tournament matches.
Cards
Tournaments have their own card status, and have a completely different system of red / yellow cards from regular Hattrick. Equally, should a player be red carded in normal Hattrick, he will still be able to play in a tournament match.
in own and official tournaments
Any card received in a own tournament match will only count for the matches that are part of that tournament.
in Ladders
Cards don't count at all in ladder tournaments.
