2nd youth team in HY


we are back again with an update about the second teams in hattrick youthclub. Hattrick has released the updated CHPP API files for the second teams on the 2nd of May. We have analyzed the new CHPP File Structure and how it fit to our structure.

The good news: It will be possible to manage your second team in HY as well.

The bad news: The changes we have to apply to HY for managing a second team are very time expensive. Thus it will take some time until you will be able to manage your second team in hattrick youthclub. ๐Ÿ™

Right now we plan to add the service for managing the second team in HY to your current account – so you will onlyย have one account (as in HT) and you can switch between your two teams. ย Thus there will be no need for a second registration. Of course we plan that you are free to decide on your own, if you manage your first, your second, both or none youth teams in HY. ๐Ÿ˜‰

As said before, it will take some time until we are ย done with implementing all needed changes. Please keep in mind, that we work on HY in our free-time (Homer is studying and I have a regular nine to five job), thus we cannot spend as much time on the developing work as we would like to spent. Additionally, I am still the only developer and we do not just want to implement it anyhow – we want to do it right.

So, if you like to help us with developing this page, you are very welcome to apply on our job page http://www.hattrick-youthclub.org/site/jobs

We will update this blog entry with major status updates and as soon as the 2nd teams can be managed on HY, we will post a new blog entry. Please make sure that you follow this blog and spread the word about our blog!

You can be sure that we are working on it – please be patient,



UPDATE 2013-06-06:

Today we started with a closed beta test for our 2nd team support. We already invited and will invite some users, who we do know pretty good and we do trust in. We think that this closed beta test will take 2-8 weeks depending on the number of bugs they will find and how much time we do need to fix them. Afterwards we may will have an open beta test or we may will release the 2nd team support for all users.


UPDATE 2013-06-18:

The beta is running for 12 days now. It is time for a short update how the beta has gone so far. The good news is, that no major bugs occur, but our tester found a ย couple of minor bugs and handed-in some suggestion for improvement. We have fixed all known bugs ย and have implemented some of the suggestions as well.

What do we have to do before we can release?

  1. We want to observe how everything is going during next weekend in beta test.
  2. We have to implement one smaller function which we do need for our release.
  3. We have to investigate a possible problem related to twins, first and second team, when using Foxtrick 0.12.0. We are in contact with FT regarding that issue.

When do we plan to release? Well, this is the master question. We can say for sure, that we will not release before the mid of next week. Depending on how we progress with these three topics left and depending on possible new problems, we are not aware of right now, we may (if everything is going well) will release at the end of next week or during the first week of July. If we will not be able to release till the 5th of July we will announce it here. After release you will find a new post to this blog ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

  • Great News Markus! I’m waiting to start my second YA until I can use your incredible service to manage it. Thanks for all the hard work you have put in on this project.

  • This is absolutely awesome news. Keep up the good work.

  • This is fantastic news really. Both the “it will happen” and the “one account, two youth teams” really puts a smile on my face!

    I have one question though since it’s been a while since I joined HY with my team.
    Will HY be able to get all my old data (meaning the scouts I will call in my second YA, the players I will reject and so on) or do I need to write these down myself and possibly add later on manually?

    • Well, we can get the data hattrick provides to us. So we will be able to download all players, who are not fire till then and all matches (but you should write down the training types, because hattrick does not provide them to us). Maybe it is helpfup to copy all coachcomments to a seperate file as well to add them later (but not too important). The scouts, as long as they are still hired, can be imported, but no region changes form them.

      I hope I did not miss anything important, but the major information is, You do not have to expect to miss information for multiple seasons, because we think, that we can manage it within this or next season^^. So if there is anything missing afterwards, the lack of information will be not thaaaat huge ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Fantastic!
    Take all necessary time!

  • Good news ๐Ÿ™‚ Good work ๐Ÿ™‚

  • thanks a lot guys!
    looking forward for it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    the 2nd team really needs the lineup help/test positions…

    i think the time has come to make a donation: you well deserve it…

  • I can’t wait!;) Thank you for your effort.

  • Thank you all. Your comments are really motivating.

    Depending on our progress we may can post an update to our post within the next 2 weeks. 2nd teams will not be ready then, but we are hopeful to have done some major steps till then and may can give an rough estimation, how long it will take until 2nd teams are ready or ready for testing by a smaller group of people.
