No teams from outside of these areas entered, so our judges were given seven at-large berths to select to reach a total of 25 finalists. After much deliberation, the judges selected (in alphabetical order):
France National Team, Lunatica Quidditch Club, Maraudeurs ICR Rennes, New York Badassalisks, Norway National Team, QUT Lycans, UK National Team.
We also granted last year’s champion the Belgian Gryffins a spot in the finals.
Each of these uniforms has been placed in a Facebook album solely for the finalists. The winner will be chosen based off a combination of its ranking in total votes and its ranking among the judges. As a reminder, votes may be cast by liking a team’s photo on the Quidditch Post’s Facebook page. Voting will close at 11:59 p.m. EST on November 20. If you have any questions, feel free to message the Quidditch Post on Facebook or email us at Quidditchpost@gmail.com. Good luck to all of the finalists.
