Jolt and Hattrick Announce International Team-Up!

Dublin, 23rd September 2009

Jolt Online Gaming, the leading publisher of free-to-play online games, is roaring in the stands at the announcement of a partnership with Hattrick, the world's biggest online football management game! Jolt and Hattrick will be working closely to publish the game in North America, UK, Ireland, Australia and Mexico to bring the game to football fans in those territories.

The Hattrick community is one of the things which make this game one of the best online football management games and at Jolt we're looking forward to growing that community throughout our own gaming network in North America, UK and beyond.

"Eric Cantona once said that when the seagulls follow the trawler, they think it is because they think Sardine's will be thrown into the sea," said Dylan Collins, CEO of Jolt. "I have no idea what he meant, but I do know that I'm looking forward to working with Hattrick. We really admire how they've built this game up to such an incredible level.They're in a league of their own."

"Jolt will be an ideal partner for us", said Johan Gustafson, founder of Hattrick. "For one thing, we are sure they will help us grow in their home turf. But above all, they share our philosophy and understand that to grow a community you have to put the users first.“

Hattrick gives you the opportunity to be both a manager and a club owner, letting you decide what teams to field, what players to buy or sell, what strategies to follow, how to train, improvements to be made to your grounds, and so much more. It's free to play and with sponsors, players, training schedules, your own fans and even the weather to contend with, this is a game that will drag you into the world of football management and have you throwing shoes across the dressing room in no time.
