The Official Quidditch League Has Arrived! Find Out Who Your Local Team Is Right Now
Forget Rooney, Sterling and Hart, your new sporting heroes are here and they wear robes.
19 years ago, J.K Rowling invented the most popular game in the wizarding world of Harry Potter (well, the entire world really) and it was called Quidditch.
Fast forward to today and an official UK Quidditch league has actually launched! Yup, golden snitches and all.
The league launches in July 2017 and will consist of eight teams (initially) divided into two regions, the North and the South...oh yes, the rivalries are already hotting up and it hasn't even started.
