This Quidditch World Cup tournament was staged in 1878 as a replacement of the 1877 “Tournament that Nobody Remembers” (Pm).

Timeline Notes

Quidditch World Cup tournaments take place over several months, with the final match falling in July (as in 2014, Pm) or August (as in 1994, GF8).



As the authorities had spent so much time preparing the Quidditch World Cup stadium for the tournament of 1877, it is entirely possible that the re-staged matches took place in the Ryn desert of Kazakhstan as well.
