No, we’re not talking about the Quidditch World Cup, we know how awesome that is. We’re talking about those smaller championship cups. I mean the Chuddley Cannons play in a league somewhere and that league has a championship cup doesn’t it? At least, all of us at Of Blades and Kings like to think so.
There’s got to be massive fanfare and preparations similar to, but not as large as, the World Cup.
Fireworks. Music. Drinks. Parties. One could easily make a whole weekend out of it.
Imagine being a vendor at these things, you spend a weekend around all these parties and traveling wizards making tons of money. Going based off the books, it seems like Quidditch Clubs have fans as passionate as fútbol does. Plus, as easy as it is to travel in the Wizarding World, fans from all over could come to watch their teams play for the Cup.
That’s what the next Quidditch World Cup game needs, expanded leagues with teams all over the country just like FIFA. Maybe, if there’s enough traction, we’ll discuss our own plans for the next Quidditch World Cup game. Who wouldn’t want to play a manager campaign with the Chuddley Cannons? I don’t know about you but it’s time to bring the Cannons back to the glory years! If you’re a developer, let’s collaborate.
This was a very wandering post, we definitely got off the rails, but this was a thought that popped in my head during the Superbowl and we wanted to share it with you. I know there’s some rumors about a Harry Potter Quidditch movie, and you could do a lot with the content in Quidditch Through the Ages, but I’d like to see a Championship Cup played.
What’d you think the Quidditch Championship Cups are like? What match-up would you like to see in the finals? Thank you for your time and remember, not all those who wander are lost.
