Hattrick announces
U20 victory for Germany and elections 28/12/2009
Deutschland is the new U20 champion. In a close exciting match against defending champion Italia a golden goal was the decisive factor choosing who was going to bring the World Cup back home: 2-1. We congratulate Deutschland and coach McDrops for this tremendous result!

As of today it is also time to elect a new national coach, and the election can be found here. Be sure to stop by the forum to check out the candidates' speeches and participate in the debate, but remember to follow the forum rules.

The HFA would like to draw your attention to a small rule change. You will not be allowed to run for a election in more than one country simultaneously. This can disqualify you from participating in the elections.
