Meet the underdogs of the Quidditch World Cup – the NAU Narwhals!
When the US Quidditch World Cup kicks off in Rock Hill, South Carolina, in just a few short weeks, teams from around the country will be vying to come out on top. Northern Arizona University’s Quidditch team, the NAU Narwhals, is one of the smallest college teams, but don’t let that fool you. The team made it to the Elite Eight stage of last year’s World Cup, and – having defeated both Arizona State University and the University of Arizona to qualify for this year’s World Cup in Rock Hill – the Narwhals are proof that determination and hard work are key to Quidditch success.
MuggleNet had the opportunity to interview Narwhals team captain Adam Beller, and – being the Muggle Quidditch fans we are – we couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
The NAU Narwhals are currently running an online campaign on Indiegogo to help fund their trip to the Quidditch World Cup. Plenty of NAU Narwhals perks are available for various levels of donation, and you can visit the campaign here.
Good luck to the NAU Narwhals and to all of the teams competing at Quidditch World Cup 8 in Rock Hill!
