A QuidditchUK Statement Regarding Northern Cup 2018Announcements
QuidditchUK would like to address the allegations of Match Fixing at Northern Cup 2018, held over the 10th and 11th November.
QuidditchUK are taking these allegations seriously, and will not stand for unfair manipulation of any quidditch match or tournament outcome. Any instance of match fixing is not in line with the values of QuidditchUK, and does a disservice to our sport and our athletes at all levels of the game.
All teams impacted by or allegedly involved in Match Fixing at Northern Cup 2018 will be investigated by the Executive Management Team and disciplined as necessary according to the Event Discipline and Suspensions Policy and the QuidditchUK Club and Team Membership Policy – Conflicts of Interest will be observed throughout the investigation.
Following completion of the investigation QuidditchUK will release the full results and standings from Northern Cup 2018. We apologise for this delay as a result of the investigation.
In response to these events and to ensure that similar incidents do not arise at any further QuidditchUK tournaments or events, effective from Southern Cup 2018 QuidditchUK has created and implemented the Team Match Fixing Policy.
