The Quidditch World Cup 2006 tournament was won by a team from Burkina Faso playing against the side from France by 300 points to 220. After the excitement of winning died down, Seeker Joshua Sankara relinquished his new position as Burkina Faso’s Minister for Magic in favour of continuing his Quidditch career (QWC).
Quidditch World Cup tournaments take place over several months, with the final match falling in July (as in 2014, QWC) or August (as in 1994, GF8).
Sankara was probably wise to abandon politics for sports.
