September 3rd, 2017 - 20 years of Hattrick!
This month celebrates 20 years of Hattrick. Although probably not the dominate game that it once was, it was the first really large browser-based massively multiplayer online sports management game. At one point, roughly one million players were playing Hattrick. In many way, it was the inspiration for games like Broken Bat and others. Congratulations on 20 years and 63 seasons of football (soccer) fun!

September 19th, 2017 - Managerial Change - New Orleans Knights
The Knights have moved on from Sam Jones as interim manager and named John "Buster" Cheung as their new manager.
Jones was named interim earlier this year and held onto the post while management interviewed candidates.
The decision was made to give Buster a chance to manage this club for the last month of the season to get a feel for them moving forward. He will need to find a way to balance veterans, prepare prospects and get the most out of a club that has seen 2 straight seasons of struggle... - mjreichard
September 18th, 2017 - Historic run falls short - San Mateo Ninja
The San Mateo Ninja made a deeper cup run than they ever have previously in team history this season, reaching the finals themselves. Unfortunately, their luck ran out at the last second and they were promptly defeated in a 2-0 sweep. Despite exceptional performance in cup games leading up to the finals, the team played the final two games as lackluster as they have been the entire season in league. - Crazy Li
