Who is eligible to compete in this event?
The regional championship is open to all official member teams of USQ based in the South region. In order to participate, players must be official USQ members (trial members may not participate in regional championships or US Quidditch Cup 10 without first upgrading their membership).
Is there a registration fee for the tournament?
No. Participation in a regional championship is free to all official member teams.
How many teams will qualify to compete in the national championship?
Regional bid allocations for USQ Cup 10 will be released on October 1.
Can teams attend multiple regional championships?
No, teams may only attend one regional championship per year.
Can my team attend a different regional championship than the one that is in my region?
Teams may apply to receive a waiver to attend a different regional championship than their own. Teams are not guaranteed a waiver to attend a different regional championship just by virtue of submitting the waiver request form. Possible acceptable circumstances under which a waiver will be granted include: assigned regional championship is much farther away than alternative regional championship, financially infeasible to attend assigned regional championship, or affiliated institution is holding a required activity during the regional championship (e.g. final exams). To apply to attend a different regional championship, please submit this form no later than one month before the date of your assigned regional championship.
I'm a vendor and I'm interested in vending at the event. How can I get involved?
Please fill out this form and staff will contact you within two business days. It costs $150 to register as a vendor at a single regional championship. If you sign up within one week of the event, the price increases to $200. Nonprofits may vend for free, provided there is space available.
Who is planning this event?

Additionally, we work with all of our volunteers across the league (ex. referee and snitch volunteers, regional coordinators, etc.) to ensure that events are the highest quality possible.
