Groups drawn for Winter Games 2017

The group stage of the German Winter Games 2917 will see the participating teams compete against each other in groups of four or five teams. The draw of these groups got us another step closer to the tournament.

The German Quidditch Winter Games 2017 take place on January 14 and 15, 2017, in Munich. The tournament consists of the group stage on Saturday (Jan 14) and the bracket play on Sunday (Jan 15). Detailed information on the tournament schedule can be found in the separate Gameplay Guide (German document).

The group draw distributed the 18 participation teams over four groups of four or five teams. The draw procedure ensured that no two teams from the same regional league would play each other during the group stage. Additionally, the four best teams of last season’s German Cup 2016 were seeded as first team in each group and randomly assigned to groups A-D.
