The Quidditch Premier League Has Found Its First Champion!
In Muggle quidditch news, the Qudditch Premier League finished off its first year of operation with an inaugural World Cup this weekend at KCOM Craven Park Stadium in Hull, England. The day-long tournament brought together eight teams from all over the country. The league’s northern division is formed by the Northern Watch, the Yorkshire Roses, the East Midlands Archers, and the West Midlands Revolution, with the London Monarchs, the Southwest Broadside, the Southeast Knights, and the Eastern Mermaids making up its southern counterpart.
After a long day of play, the final match came down to the West Midlands Revolution and the Southeast Knights, with West Midlands ultimately taking the game.
As if winning the Quidditch Premier League’s first World Cup wasn’t enough excitement for the West Midlands Revolution, J.K. Rowling herself reached out to them via Twitter to congratulate them on their achievement.
Congratulations to West Midlands Revolution, whom I’ve just seen on the news winning the first Quidditch Premier League. @quidpremleague

Between the news attention and the shout-out from J.K. Rowling, it’s impossible to deny that the cup was a huge success for the Quidditch Premier League. Hopefully, this is just the beginning for them.
Congratulations to the West Midlands Revolution and the Quidditch Premier League!
