19/4/2010 Greece wins Hattrick World Cup XIV!
The new Hattrick World Cup champions are Hellas, or Greece as we usually call it. Hellas beat Belgium 2 to 1 in an exciting final, which they dominated.

Our congratulations to coach cheetoss for winning the Cup, and our thanks to all the participating teams!
