Forget fiction... this sport is real.
That's the starting call of real-life quidditch, and on April 13th, 2013, those words will inaugurate the sixth annual Quidditch World Cup. Players will collide in full-force tackles, bludgers will leave stinging blows that knock athletes off their feet, quaffles will whistle through the goal hoops, while seekers hunt the snitch runner. Thousands of spectators will look on, watching one of the most exciting sports ever invented unfold before them. Come join the crowd and cheer on more than 1,500 athletes from 80 teams around the world, as they all compete for one WORLD CUP.
