EQC2024 – Team Info

Last update: 12 March 2024


EQC2024 will be played at the Salou Sport Center.

If you are looking for the venue online and/or on your GPS, you can enter: Vial Salou Cambrils, 43840 Salou, Tarragona, Spain

There is parking available at the venue. The amount of parking spaces is plenty.


The venue has multiple natural- and artificial grass football fields. The event will see a total of 12 quadball pitches spread across the venue. The playing surface of the used pitches will be a combination of natural- and artificial grass.

Please keep in mind that no iron/metal studs will be allowed on any of the fields. Make sure to bring appropriate equipment/footwear in accordance with this regulation! 

Stay&Play at Cambrils Park Resort

EQC2024 will be using a mandated Stay&Play policy. All athletes and team staff must stay at Cambrils Park Resort.

Located just 10 minutes walking distance from the Salou Sport Center, you can find the Resort, specially designed to accommodate all types of athletes. After an intense day of games, there is nothing better than resting in a comfortable, clean and private accommodation.

There are a variety of pools you can chill at, a fitness and spa area, and a sports area. The resort is divided into three areas: the Mediterranean, Polynesia, and the Caribbean.

The Stay&Play policy is in place to use the Salou Sports Center at a hefty discount. Not using the Resort would result in much higher fees.

Checking In

It will be possible to check in to the Resort from 4PM each day. 

If any person is arriving before 15th of March 2024, they will have to check in at Reception #2 (in the West). 

Arriving on any other date (starting from & including 15th of March 2024), you have to check in at Reception #1 (in the South)

On check-in, expect to have to show your ID and tell which team you’re affiliated with (aka which Booking Sheet you were on). 

Once checked in, you’ll receive your keycard, the number of your accommodation & instructions on how to get to your bungalow/apartment. 

One person per building will also receive a checklist, to check whether all items are present in the building. They’ll be expected to fill in the checklist and bring it back to the reception within a reasonable time. If the checklist is not brought back and/or if any item missing after check-out, this will be charged after the tournament. Please be responsible! 

Breakfast & Dinner

There will be a specific difference between food slots on non-tournament days and tournament days (Saturday & Sunday). 

The buffet will always be served af ‘Fòrum’, the big red building on the map next to the biggest pool. 

On non-tournament days, the Resort has assigned individuals a slot for both breakfast & dinner, based on your check-in and check-out date-times. These slots last ~45 minutes. This should be communicated on check-in, but we should also already be able to tell you this in a few days.  

On tournament days, the EQC organisation will assign you a slot for breakfast & dinner, based on your first game & last game of each of the days. The breakfast slot will last ~30 minutes. The dinner slot will last about ~45 minutes. 

You can find the food schedule here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1VRZKYI_9QT55-nwKgbvdROb6pQPnO3MYZ_wVEsJ9pAY/edit?usp=sharing 

Please keep in mind we will be updating the schedule for Saturday & Sunday once we have announced the full gameplay schedule.

Officials Quota

No game can take place without officials. Therefore we are currently working hard on getting as many non-playing officials to attend EQC so you and your players can focus on playing.

However, we expect to have significantly fewer non-playing officials for this EQC compared to previous years because usually most non-playing officials are playing in the other Division, i.e. a non-playing official at Division 1 is/was playing at Division 2 and vice versa. Therefore, for this EQC, we will be very reliant on playing officials so that every team gets to play their games fairly and in a properly officiated manner.

For this, there will be a quota of officials that every team regardless of Division needs to fulfill. This quota will be as follows:

With HRWithout HR
1x Head Referee
2x Assistant Referee2x Assistant Referee
1x Flag Referee (*)2x Flag Referee (*)
1x Flag Runner (**)2x Flag Runner (**)
5x Officials Total6x Officials Total
*) Flag Referees will be used as an additional AR prior to the Flag Runner entering the field.
**) Every team will be required to field 1 Flag Runner at all times during the event. This means that should your team’s dedicated Flag Runner no longer be capable of fulfilling this duty, e.g. due to injury or the person having to leave the event early, then a different person from your team must fill this role.

In order to keep the administrative burden as low as possible, the officials from your team DO NOT have to sign up separately. The officials of your team for the quota will be forwarded with your team’s preliminary roster. There will be a separate section on the preliminary roster to fill in. That way you know directly whether you fulfill quota and we also have an easy way to keep track.

Any person on your roster is eligible to count towards quota, i.e. both players and non-playing team-staff. If you wish to have non-playing officials (i.e. neither player nor team-staff) count towards your quota, this requires special approval by the committee.

In this case, the non-playing official needs to reach out to us at eqc.volunteers@quidditcheurope.org and we will coordinate with them. Afterwards, the non-playing official will then be able to tell you whether or not you can use them for your quota.

Please make sure that all officials you list are certified under the rulebook used for the event. We will check certifications for every official. Only certified officials can count towards your team’s quota!

If your team is struggling to fulfil the quota, please reach out to us at eqc.volunteers@quidditcheurope.org and we will work on finding a solution for your team!

The deadline to fulfill quota is the same deadline as for the preliminary roster submission on February 23rd, 2024.

Pitch Volunteering

In addition to the officials quota, every team is required to leave behind 2 people after every game to fill the positions of timekeeper, scorekeeper and the goal judges for the subsequent game at the pitch. 

These people do not have to sign up as volunteers. The schedule will list your team and you are required to fill the position(s) with people. 

The people must report to the pitch manager immediately at the end of your team’s game and are required to remain at the pitch.

If your team fails to provide the required 2 people at any of the scheduled slots, your team will receive a yellow card at the start of your next game at the event. This card will be issued to the speaking captain.
