‘History of Quidditch’ Part 2 Posted on Pottermore.com

527862_552519414782427_1463657314_nPottermore.com, the digital platform dedicated to Harry Potter, has posted the second part of J.K. Rowling’s “History of the Quidditch World Cup.”

The first part, released last week on March 14th, detailed the historical background of the Quidditch World Cup competition. According to the press release, the new material contains recaps of each tournament that was held from 1990 to 2010.

Rowling’s intention with part two is to “amuse and entertain sport-lovers and Harry Potter fans alike with its witty descriptions of a game that has many parallels in the real, ‘Muggle’ world.” Readers will learn “which small country managed to beat China in a furiously contested match lasting 3 days” and “which ‘Seeker’ had a short-lived stint as Burkina Faso’s Minister for Magic following his team’s win.” Have you ever played the Muggle version of Quidditch?
