Be close, no matter where you are!

Your team collects points based on real-life performance data of your players. The awarding of points is based on the official handball performance index of the HBL, which allows the performance of each player to be realistically assessed. Together with our data service providers, we collect performance and position data for each LIQUI MOLY HBL player, which you receive directly from the hall on your smartphone.

Based on this data, your players receive minus and plus points for each action during a match, which add up to your total points at the end of the match day.

Everything at a glance!

START7 is clear and structured. In the look and feel of the Handball Bundesliga, you will find all important information at a glance.

In the lobby, you can see the top scorers of the last month and keep an overview of new releases on the transfer market or the latest transfers in your league.
You can keep up to date with what's happening in the LIQUI MOLY HBL via the news feed.

Squad planning with your stars!

The heart of START7 is the squad planner: You can put together your team on seven positions. Your squad may contain a maximum of 12 players, which you can exchange before each match day.

Players who are placed in the squad collect points in their real games on match day, which contribute to your overall score. If you are able to collect plus points on a match day, this also increases your account balance.
If you are not satisfied with the performance of your players, you can offer them for sale on the transfer market or buy new players.

Trade your players on the virtual transfer market!

Each real player is only available once in each league you create.
While you receive a random team of 10 players and a fixed budget after joining a league, you can change your squad afterwards via the transfer market.
Sell your players on the transfer market or bid on your handball stars, which are offered by other managers from your league or from START7.
Supply and demand regulate the market value, which is updated daily.

The Bundesliga player is in focus!

As a START7 manager, you will have the opportunity to call up every licensed player from the LIQUI MOLY HBL to your squad. Whether you use your favourite players from your favourite club or rely on young and hungry rookies is up to you.

The player profiles in the app provide you with information about each player and his performance. Insights into the player statistics help you put together your team.

How does START7 calculate its points?

The points development is based on the performance data of your players from reality. The basis for calculating the points awarded to the individual players is the Handball Performance Index, or more precisely the HPI points. For each match action during a match, your players receive minus and plus points, which determine the amount of your bonus at the end of a match day. The more HPI points a player has collected, the better his performance was in the match. For the calculation, we use 25 statistical values (performance and position data) for each player in the LIQUI MOLY HBL, which we collect together with our data service providers.

Unlike the HPI points, where the starting value is between 50 an 100, the point calculation for START7 starts at 0.

You can find more information about the HPI here.

How are the market values of the players determined?

The market values of players are calculated based on supply and demand within the app. If the player is sold in an above-average number of leagues at a price below his market value, his market value decreases. If, on the other hand, he is bought more often than average at a price above his market value, his market value increases. Our market values are updated once a day around midnight, so that there is always a current daily price for each player.

How does the transfer market work?

On the transfer market, you can sell your players or buy more players for your squad. To buy a player, you simply place a bid for him. The offering manager will then receive a notification and can accept or reject your offer.

If you want to sell a player, select him in the transfer market screen via the plus symbol. You can enter your desired price for the player there, as well as the duration for which the player is to be offered on the transfer market. As soon as the player is on the transfer market, START7 will make you an offer for the player after some time. The other managers in your league can also make offers for your player via the transfer market. If you like an offer, you can accept it immediately and the player will then be transferred to your squad.

Further explanations of the transfer logic can be found in the game rules.
