QuidditchUK is delighted to formally announce Fran Morris as the new Events Director. In this role, Fran will be taking the helm of QuidditchUK’s flagship events, supporting our Events Officers and tournament committees to deliver regional and national tournaments to a high standard.
Fran brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to this role, and has repeatedly proven her ability to deliver excellent events. She led the tournament committee of Northern Cup 2019 as tournament director, and has also held senior roles in delivering BQC, Christmas Cup, and multiple iterations of Valentines Cup. Fran’s experience as a player is also extensive, from a strong first season in 2015-16 with the Radcliffe Chimeras, to leading the Oxford Quidlings as captain, before joining her current team the Oxford Mammoths.
Upon joining QuidditchUK, Fran said:
I cannot wait to join QuidditchUK on a permanent basis as Events Director, especially as the upcoming year is looking to be an exciting time in terms of events, with some big changes coming to our season structure. My main focus will be on overseeing these changes and ensuring a smooth transition into a new system which gives teams and players more opportunities to compete. I’m looking forward to building on the excellent foundations laid by Gen in this role previously, and working with the incredible Events department, to continue to deliver great tournaments and fixtures in future!
As Events Director, Fran will be a member of the QuidditchUK Executive Management Team, and will help to steer the sport through 2020 and beyond. She has already been involved in the delivery of the European Qualifying Tournament 2020, and we are excited to see Fran apply her experience and formidable work ethic to upcoming events.
Best of luck in your new role, Fran!
