 For the past several years, USQ has done an award program for teams who attended US Quidditch Cup. We also used to do specific member awards at the end of every season. Due to the impacts of COVID-19, USQ Cup 13 has been canceled, but that doesn’t mean that there are no awards to give out! We are bringing both programs back this year, and merging them under one umbrella of member awards. There will be three categories of awards, for teams, events, and players. We are starting with team awards. Nominations for event and player awards will open later this month. 

Team Awards

All USQ member teams in the 19-20 season are eligible to be nominated for these four awards:

  • Best Chant Award
    • For the most fun, exciting pregame chant
  • Best Uniform Award
    • For the best display of team branding and spirit in the form of uniforms
  • Sportsmanship Award
    • For a commendable demonstration of fair play, generosity and integrity on and off the pitch
  • Service Award
    • For outstanding efforts in giving back to the community and helping the sport grow

Nominations for these awards are now live! To nominate a team, please fill out this form.

USQ staff will pick the top five nominees for each category and the public will vote on the winners. Staff will take into account individual nominations, as well as their experiences and observations with teams this season.

Nominations will close on Thursday, April 16 at 9 pm ET. Voting will open Friday, April 17 at 12 pm ET. The voting form will be posted to our social media channels and added to this article. The winners will be announced on Sunday via livestream between the semi-final and championship matches of US Quarantine Cup 13, the simulated virtual national championship currently being run by the Eighth Man. Winners will have their awards mailed to them this summer.
