Event Bidding

Each year, US Quidditch hosts the US Quidditch Cup (previously called “World Cup” prior to the 2015-2016 season) and eight regional championships. These events would not be possible without the support of host cities, who provide the infrastructure and financial support necessary to make these large-scale events a reality.

USQ regional championships and the US Quidditch Cup are the largest events of the year, with hundreds of players and thousands of spectators. Potential city hosts will have the benefits of bringing a brand-new, dynamic sport to their region, while attracting a college-aged player base that combined with our Stay and Play policy will result in a tangible economic impact.

The bid manual for 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 events is available here.

Bid Process

Interested parties may review USQ’s bid manual for detailed information on deadlines and requirements for hosting one of USQ’s premier events: US Quidditch Cup and one of eight Regional Championships.

To initiate the bid process, interested parties should first download and review the bid manual. Potential hosts must submit a letter of intent, along with the bid snapshot and the completed bid package. Then, USQ will select finalists from among the bids received, and then will conduct site visits of all the finalist locations. The locations for events for the next season(s) will be announced during the summer.
