QuidditchUK are pleased to announce that Development Cup 2019 will be hosted at Salford Sports Village, in Manchester 2nd – 3rd March 2019.
Salford Sports Centre is a sporting facility in Manchester complete with full athletic facilities. Development Cup will see use of both grass 3G pitches, changing rooms, floodlit grounds and indoor access for our athletes. Salford Community Sport is excited to work with QuidditchUK, and we’re looking forward to seeing our teams come together and compete.
Given the growth of QuidditchUK and our development level teams, it’s important that Development Cup 2019 reflects that growth with a high end sports ground.
As teams will be competing for British Quidditch Cup spots, it’s important that your club leadership make themselves familiar with the team and player policies surrounding eligibility for Development Cup 2019.
QuidditchUK would like to apologise for the significant delay in the announcement of this tournament – A previously organised venue in Wolverhampton was cancelled at the last minute by the venue. The cancellation happened immediately before the final written agreement had been set between the two parties.
Despite attempts, the timing of the cancellation prevented us from confirming another venue in a timely matter due to the holiday break. This coupled with the attention required of the upcoming European Qualifier Tournament resulted in the further delays to getting this out.
Nevertheless we are confident that Salford Sports Centre will be an excellent venue for Development Cup and future QuidditchUK events.
Due to the delay, QuidditchUK will endeavour to provide some leniency in team and roster deadlines in the lead up to Development Cup.
