Development Cup 2018 will take place on the weekend of 14th-15th April 2018 at 22 Acres in York.
After recieving several bids, 22 Acres, York, has been selected due to its great onsite facilities and quality sporting grounds, including high grade sports pitches, indoor changing rooms and accessibility to teams travelling from outside of York.
Bids to host Development Cup were also recieved from Wyncote Sports Ground, Liverpool, UCLan Sports Arena, Preston, Brookes Sport, Oxford, and Bath Recreation Ground, Bath. Wyncote Sports Ground andUCLan Sports Arena were considered strong candidates to host Development Cup 2018, but were eventually deemed unsuitable due to the cost to host and the availability to host at the proposed venues. Having already been chosen as the venue for the British Quidditch Cup 2018, Brookes Sport was also proposed as a potential venue for Development Cup 2018, however QuidditchUK felt it would be beneficial to host Development Cup at a different venue. Bath Recreation Ground proved to be an excellent venue to host Development Cup in the future with fantastic facilities on offer however due to the limited amount of space available during the Rugby season, 22 Acres in York proved to be a stronger location for the 2017/18 season.
