J.K. Rowling Shares History of Quidditch on Pottermore.com

pottermore.comPottermore.com, the digital platform dedicated to Harry Potter, has posted J.K. Rowling’s first “History of the Quidditch World Cup.” The 2,400-word history gives color to the game played by witches and wizards in the book series.

The story is one  of the longest Rowling has written for the site, since it launched in 2012. The piece  will be available in two sections over the next week. The first part is up today, the second part will post next Friday. Here is an excerpt:

According to the Official Guide to the Quidditch World Cup – produced by the International Confederation of Wizards Quidditch Committee (ICWQC) and available through all reputable wizarding bookstores for what many feel is the ridiculously overpriced sum of thirty nine Galleons – the tournament has been held every four years since 1473. As with so much else about the wizarding world’s most important sporting competition, many query the accuracy of this statement.
