"Angry scenes resulted, and the somewhat lacklustre performance of the Falcons was therefore missed by most of the crowd."
-- match report in the Daily Prophet (DP2)
Chaos Reigns on Exmoor for Falcons & Pride of Portree is an article in the Sports section of the Daily Prophet (DP2).
The Daily Prophet reported the fiasco that took place during the quidditch match between the Falmouth Falcons and Pride of Portree on Exmoor. The Ministry of Magic’s Department of Magical Sports and Games had advertised that an Invisibility spell would be used on the stadium. They advised that Re-Visibility Spectacles were going to be needed that evening. However, many fans were either unable to find the stadium or could not see the the match even while using the glasses (DP2).
Although the date printed on the second Daily Prophet Newsletter (DP2) is 8 February 1999, the timeframe for this event is 1992-1993.
