At dusk the crowd begins to migrate to the [Quidditch World Cup Stadium]. On the way, [Harry], [Ron], and [Hermione] stop for souveniers, and Harry buys [Omnioculars] for each of them.
Setting Up Camp
After a bit of walking and marvelling at other wizards' showing off, [Mr. Weasley] manages to find the campsite and, with the help of [Harry] and [Hermione], erect a pair of impressive tents.
[Harry], [Ron], and [Hermione] set off across the [campsite] to find water. On the way see a number of friends from [Hogwarts], Harry learns about the [Irish] and [Bulgarian] [Quidditch] teams, and they marvel at a number of wizards in foolish outfits or displaying magic in public.
Back at the tent [Hermione] helps [Mr. Weasley] light a fire, and the group prepares dinner while Mr. Weasley points out various employees of the [Ministry of Magic].
Still at the campsite, the group is joined by [Bill], [Charlie], and [Percy], and then soon afterward by [Ludo Bagman]. Ludo talks about his excitement and lets [Fred and George] bet on the match. Before long, [Mr. Crouch] arrives, too, discussing [Ministry] regulations and [flying carpets]. Finally, Crouch drags Bagman away, though not before referring to Percy as 'Weatherby.'
Chapter 8 - "The Quidditch World Cup" - In which the spectators take their seats, Harry meets Winky (house elf for Barty Crouch), the Malfoys, and Mr. Oblansk (the Bulgarian Minister for Magic). The pre-game show features the Bulgarian and Irish team mascots, followed by the introductions of the teams, and the game begins. Ireland takes an early lead and eventually wins despite repeated Bulgarian fouls and Krum catching the Snitch. Fred and George win their bet with Bagman.
In the Top Box
[Harry] marvels at the surroundings as [Mr. Weasley] leads him and his friends up to the top box in the [Quidditch World Cup Stadium].
In the top box, [Harry] thinks he sees [Dobby] but it turns out to be [Winky], another [house-elf] and a friend of Dobby's, who seems to be terrified of heights.
As [Harry], [Ron], and [Hermione] eagerly anticipate the match, they watch the [Bulgarian Minester for Magic] file into the top box, and soon afterward the [Malfoy] family as well, who of course insult the [Weasleys] the moment they set eyes on them. Finally [Ludo Bagman] arrives and prepares to open the match.
Bulgaria Versus Ireland!
The [Quidditch World Cup] prepares to begin, as the [Bulgarian] [veela] and the [Irish] [leprechauns] each perform for the crowd. Before long - and once the boys in the crowd have gotten their fascination with the veela under control - the [Quidditch] teams are introduced, along with the referee, and the match gets underway.
