Location Finalists for US Quidditch Cup 10 Announced
- Kissimmee, Florida, through Experience Kissimmee at Austin-Tindall Regional Park
- San Diego, California, through San Diego Sports Alliance at San Diego Polo Fields
- Tulsa, Oklahoma, through Tulsa Sports Commission at Mohawk Sports Complex
The annual tournament has been held in various cities across South Carolina for the past three seasons, so it will be interesting to see three different options for the tournament. These finalists were narrowed down from a large pool of bids, and site visits will be held over the next month to determine the final location, which will be announced along with the date in July.
I’m excited to announce the finalists for our tenth national championship. We’ve had a relationship with all three finalist cities for some time now, and I look forward to meeting with them again at the site visits later this summer.
