The German Quidditch League

 

From the 2016/17 season onwards, Germany is hosting a quidditch league alongside the big annual tournaments. Regular game days allow the teams to get additional experience, test new strategies and mingle with other teams. The league thus plays an important role in improving the level of quidditch played in Germany and in bringing the community closer together.
The league is currently subdivided into six regional leagues within which teams compete (see below). This subdivision ensures shorter distances and lower travel costs.

The 2016/17 league season is additionally limited to the second half of the regular season. This allows younger teams who have only started up very recently to participate in the competition, and leads to each regional league comprising of four to five teams. The different regional leagues also set the scene for different league systems to be tested and to be analysed in collaboration with the teams. DQB is using this trial period to develop a reasoned league system that meets the teams’ needs and wishes for the 2017/18 season.

Teams and individual participants alike are invited to share their thoughts and feedback on the league. Please get in touch with gameplay director Niklas Müller (gameplay[at]deutscherquidditchbund.de).
