Youth League match income
The revenue required to train and develop Youth teams has not quite kept pace with their expenses. To help balance this your Chairman has worked closely with your Supporters Trust and fans of your team.

They have agreed that all home matches in the Youth Leagues (all three) will generate income as fans will now use the facilities and buy tickets.

The change affects Youth Leagues this Season.

Signup deadline
The signup deadline for the Youth Leagues has been extended by 96 hours and is now 2014-07-20 23:59:59 CEST


Good luck for the new season!

Retirements are here

Retirements have been announced in Hockey and Football and Manager's are busy checking their squads, calling the Club Secretary and arranging meetings with their Chairmen as they consider how to rebuild their squad or persuade retiring Players to stay.

Whilst some teams have been rocked by some Player's retirement plans, others are eagerly negotiating with their eldest stars who's contracts they have secured for another year.


Players announcing their retirement at 30/31
The Player's Birth Season is used in all calculations, for retirements for Uxx Leagues, for Uxx Cups et cetera.

A Football Player born in Season 20 is considered to be 31, in Season 51, which is why some Players have announced they are considering retirement.

All Players can be extended by at least one Season, so they will actually retire when they reach the age of 32 (at the end of Season 52) if their Manager chooses to extend their career.

Using two Football Players as examples, both are born in Season 20 and as it is now Football Season 51, they are considered to be 31 years of age.

Flávio Gomes
Born on day 1 of Season 20.
Birthday this season: 16-07-2014

Parker Billings
Born on day 8 of Season 20.
Birthday this season: 23-07-2014
(Depending on when in the Season you view this Player, he will show either 30 or 31 years of age, but his Birth Season is always Season 20)

Their "Birthday" age is not used, only their Birth Season, the same is used in the Youth Leagues, and all Uxx Competitions.

The same applies to Hockey, with Players from Season 28 who announced their retirement plans today.

National Teams
National Coaches are reminded to check their squads and tactics as over age or retired Players have been withdrawn from the squads.

Season Break Tour

Earn at least €500,000 by organising a Season Break Tour for your Club!
Summer has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere, the home of the Hamsters, and your Chairman wants to ensure that your Club has funds to see you through the Season Break, so has asked you to plan for the Season Break Tour.

Sponsors are always eager to help Managers grow their clubs in this way, and this Spring Tour gives you a great chance to join in.

Your Chairman knows that wage bills are a concern as well as finding the funds to train your favourite Players, or persuade your retiring star to play an extra Season.

Successfully complete either of the Tours between the dates below, and your Club Chairman will offer a bonus of €500,000!

To secure these funds, you must complete either (or both) of the Tours listed below between 1000 CET, June 27th, 2014 and 1800 CET, July 16th, 2014.

TOUR #1
Compete and play in 2 or more different FRIENDLY LEAGUE competitions. One match in each different competition must be played during the tour dates AND the Friendly Leagues must have been created after June 26th 00.01 CEST.

Friendly Leagues joined through the new Friendly League Pools are considered normal Friendly Leagues and are valid for Tour #1.

TOUR #2
Play 24 FRIENDLIES (12 home and 12 away)

ACADEMY BONUS
If you have an active Youth Academy with 16 or more youths in Football or 20 in Hockey, on July 18th, 2014 the board will contribute an additional €100,000 towards their education and upkeep. You must also complete one of the Tours to qualify for this bonus.

*Update*
As a Summer treat (or Winter if you are in the Southern Hemisphere) your Chairman has agreed to extend the deadline for the ACADEMY BONUS to Monday 21st July. Your Club Secretary will check your Academy on July 18th, 2014 AND July 21st, 2014 and award the bonus if you have qualified (one €100,000 only)

Successfully complete either of the Tours between the dates above, and the rewards will be added to your Club balance on July 18th, 2014. Now more than ever your commitment to the cause can push your team to the next level!

Crew's decision is final.
