QuidditchUK European Qualifier Tournament Eligibility Policy

The following requirements will be applied to teams and players attending the QuidditchUK European Qualifier Tournament, and European Quidditch Cup (EQC)

  1. Teams
    1. The tournament will be open to teams across QuidditchUK by invitation only.
      1. The teams are chosen from teams competing at QuidditchUK Regional Championships.
      2. These teams will be determined by final standings at QuidditchUK Regional Championships.
      3. The spots for the EQC Qualifier Tournament will be allocated to each region based on the number of teams attending their respective regional championships; 
      4. AND based on the overall regional distribution of the top ranked teams at the previous British Quidditch Cup. 
    2. Teams will be competing for the right to compete at the EQC that season.
    3. The Teams competing at the European Qualifier Tournament will be ranked from First to Last upon the completion of the tournament. Teams will then be qualify to compete representing QuidditchUK in EQC Division 1 in descending order from First place until QuidditchUK’s Division 1 allocation has been exhausted.
      1. In the case where teams qualify for EQC but do not wish to compete, the spot will be given to the next team in descending order.
      2. Should more European Qualifier Tournament teams decline their EQC spots than we have spots available, QuidditchUK will return any remaining EQC spots to Quidditch Europe to reallocate to other NGBs.
    4. Should QuidditchUK also receive spots for EQC Division 2, that spot will be given to the next team in descending order after the allocation of Division 1 spots.
  2. Minimum Roster Policy
    1. All teams must fulfill the requirements of the QuidditchUK Minimum Roster Policy
    2. Teams unable to fulfill this policy are ineligible to compete at the European Qualifier Tournament
      1. As EQC is not governed by QuidditchUK, it is not subject to the QuidditchUK Minimum Roster Policy.
  3. Players 
    1. A player must be registered with the team as a member of QuidditchUK to be eligible to compete at the European Qualifier Tournament.
    2. A player may not compete in more than one European Qualifier Tournament.
      1. This includes players who have already competed in a European Qualifier Tournament hosted by another NGB that season.
      2. This means players who wish to compete in the QuidditchUK European Qualifier Tournament, may not compete in another NGB EQC qualifying tournament that season.
      3. Quidditch Europe does provide exception to this when a player physically moves countries, as outlined in their Transfer Policy Here
    3. Players that compete and successfully qualify for EQC may only play with their qualifying club.
