In anticipation of next month’s Quidditch World Cup in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, we’ve been obsessed with all things Quidditch, all over the globe. For those of you who are not familiar with the game, played in our world by Muggles only, Mike Bushell of BBC lays it out for you in under three minutes as he joins European Quidditch champions, the Oxford Chimeras, for a game. You can view the video here.
Speaking of games, the University of Missouri teams will battle it out in the Spring Breakout Tournament this weekend, which will feature four of the Midwest World Cup teams. Learn more about the matchups here!
The IQA (International Quidditch Association) has also continued the introduction of the top teams that could be in the running to take the World Cup home with its sixth installment of the World Cup preview series, March to Myrtle.
A countdown for the World Cup has been posted on the IQA home page, and a list of the qualifying teams from across the world has been published as well. MuggleNet will be covering the World Cup in person at the North Myrtle Beach Sports Complex, which will begin on April 5. You can pre-order tickets for the Cup here until March 31, online beginning April 1, or at the event itself.
