Referee Quotas for the 2019/2020 Season

The minimum match official quotas for the 2019/20 season have been greatly simplified and slightly increased from the previous season as we will require more officials to match our plans for increased numbers of games at tournaments.

As QuidditchUK will be be utilising the same rulebook and amendments, those who qualified as a referee last season under the IQA Online Tests will retain their qualification for this season.

Those wishing to get qualified can do so here.

The following applies for each team attending Southern Cup, Northern Cup, and British Quidditch Cup:

If your team attended BQC 2019 AND made the Upper Bracket

  • 1 Head Referee
  • 1 Assistant Referee
  • 1 Snitch Runner
  • 2 First Aider or Assistant Referee or Snitch Referee

If your team attended BQC 2019 AND made the Lower Bracket or attended Development Cup 2019

  • 1 Assistant Referee
  • 1 Snitch Referee
  • 1 Snitch or First Aider

Supplementary Match Officials

At the end of a game, each team must provide 2 players to act as Supplementary Match Officials (Goal Referee, Timekeeper, Scorekeeper) in the following game on the same pitch. For the first game of each day, the teams who will play in the second slot on the same pitch must provide these players instead. A failure to do so (without clearing it with the Tournament Director beforehand) will result in a yellow card being given to that team’s Speaking Captain at the start of their next game.

Players wishing to volunteer as a SMO should read through the following form to ensure they know the responsibilities of these roles:
