Quidditch is a mixed-gender, full-contact sport created in 2005 by students at Middlebury College in Vermont. Based on the fictional sport from Harry Potter, the real-life version has grown from a backyard game to an international sport played by over 400 college and club teams across six continents. Quidditch has a unique set of rules that includes elements from rugby, basketball and dodgeball.
Major League Quidditch is a national league that runs from June 1 to August 30 with the majority between June 1 and July 31. The league consists of 16 teams from the United States and Canada. These teams are divided up geographically into three divisions of five teams. Each team plays three games against every other team in its division for a total of 12 games. All regular-season games will be completed by Aug. 7. This leaves the remainder of August for an inter-division postseason that will determine the Benepe Cup Champion.
A typical MLQ series is a three-game match between two franchises held on one field over the course of three hours. MLQ requires a total of five hours to allow for setup and takedown. A MLQ SuperSeries is a two-day event that brings three teams from a division together to play two series each. A SuperSeries requires 11 hours of field access over the course of two days in two blocks of time.
The MLQ Championship in late August will have 12 teams with matches played simultaneously on two pitches, with all matches livestreamed to the community of fans that cannot attend. The 2021 MLQ Championship in Howard County, Virginia, brought in an estimated economic impact of $115,000.
