Quidditch Europe regrets to announce the postponement of both the European Quidditch Cup 2021 Division One, and European Quidditch Cup 2021 Division Two. Both these events will not be held in the spring of 2021, due to the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We came to the decision that an event in spring will not be safe to attend for our players, volunteers and spectators.
Quidditch Europe is now aiming to host the European Quidditch Cup 2021 in the summer of 2021. We are currently in the process of contacting our bidding partners in finding new dates for the event. We realize that the new timeframe of summer 2021 overlaps with the one announced by the IQA for the European Games 2021 and we are working together with the IQA Events Department in preventing any clash in dates of the different events and having enough time in between them.
We understand if you are disappointed as this is yet another postponement of a major international tournament. Quidditch Europe is working hard towards making it possible to host an event in 2021. However, due to the ever-changing situation across Europe and new measures and restrictions being announced almost daily, it makes it very hard to make any definitive plans for the upcoming year. We have high hopes that the European Quidditch Cup 2021 will be held in the summer of 2021 and will keep you informed on the developments.
Thank you for all your trust and support, we can’t do this without you. We are all Quidditch Europe!
