With 2019 drawing to a close in a matter of weeks, QuidditchUK are requesting the community to apply for tournament official roles as part of the European Qualifying Tournament held at Salford Sports Village in Manchester on February 1st – 2nd 2020.
Manchester will play host to the top 12 teams from the nation, with teams ranked 2nd through to 7th from Northern and Southern facing off and deciding who will represent the United Kingdom at both European Quidditch Cup Divisions later in 2020. As you may remember, Werewolves of London and Velociraptors Quidditch Club reclaimed their respect title of regional champions this season and have automatically been awarded a 1st seeded spot in Division 1 in Ghent, Belgium. Therefore, 3 spots are up for grabs for going to Division 1 in (2nd/3rd) May, where the 5 remaining are allocated to Division 2 held in Brescia, Italy in (28th/29th) March.
You can find opportunities for Tournament Directors, and Assistant Tournament Directors. As well as roles for Media/Operations/Gameplay Officers. Travel and Accommodation costs are reimbursed in full for Committee Volunteers within the United Kingdom. If you want to get involved, please apply or get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
We cannot stress enough in how much of an important requirement tournament volunteers are to run our events. To avoid a repeat of last season’s limited number of applications, we had a mandatory requirement for all roles to be filled by the specific deadline for Northern/Southern. Failure to fill in the quota potentially resulted in the cancellation of the tournament(s). Thankfully, the community pulled through and QuidditchUK would like to reiterate our gratitude to everyone who met our request so that we could deliver the best events (that were practically) possible. The same regulation applies to EQT, for more information on that post, please read here:
Positions for Tournament Committee Members are live now, will be open until January 2nd – Reminders will be placed on social media and sent to clubs in the lead up. Let’s keep up the fantastic streak of readiness to devote time/commitment to this sport and make this an EQT to remember.
Development Cup & British Quidditch Cup volunteer roles will be announced in mid-late January 2020.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation. As a reminder, positions for EQT as well as our other departments can be found on the Volunteers Page
