IQA news updates
September 23, 2020
After consulting with event partners and NGBs, the International Quidditch Association and US Quidditch have decided to postpone the IQA World Cup from 2021 to either 2022 or 2023. This decision was made primarily due to the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on national teams, as well as the ongoing safety concerns with holding large, international, in-person gatherings. The precise year of the next World Cup will be released in early 2021.
