National Coach election
Have you got what it takes to become a National Coach for your country?
The National Coach (NC) is an important position. NC's represent your country in the many International competitions in ManagerZone and the position should be filled by Managers who will strive for their country as well as their own prestige.
This is a great part of ManagerZone and one we really enjoy organising. If you think you have got what it takes to lead your country as a National Coach, take the chance to stand as a candidate in the next National Coach Election!
Who can stand as a candidate?
- Club Members who have played the game more than 1 month
- Supporters who have played the game more than 6 months
Candidates must have played more than 1 month to gain a basic understanding of the game. The voters will decide who is elected, if they believe the candidate has the skill and determination to succeed.
Who can vote?
- Managers who have played the game more than 12 months
- Supporters who have played the game more than 3 months
- All Club Members
When a Manager becomes a candidate, they are able to create an election profile. This contains details from the candidate's profile page, team information (taken from the database) and a personal message.
This information is seen by all Managers.
The voting process
The voting process has two stages. At the end of the first phase, the three highest placed candidates will progress to the second stage, where they compete in a second round of voting.
In the event of a tie, the longest serving Manager will win.
Only Managers who voted in the first round will be able to vote in the second round.
Votes will be presented as a percentage of the total, making it harder for individual Managers to try and manipulate the result.
During the final 6 hours of the election, the percentages will be hidden, for the same reason.
If you want your candidate to win, make sure you vote and vote fairly.
As the final result is announced, the percentages for the final round will be shown.
Between each round and before the final result is announced, there will be a 'cooling' period to allow HMAs time to check that there are no suspicious votes cast.
The National Coach elections will begin on Wednesday 1st of July.
Wednesday 1st July - Sunday 5th July
Phase 1 voting
Monday 6th July - Friday 10th July
Cooldown to validate votes
Phase 2 voting
Monday 13th July - Friday 17th July
Cooldown for final count
New Coaches Appointed
To ensure active engagement in the Confederations, European and World Cups, only Countries with an elected National Coach will be invited to participate.
