The English national teams are from England (one of the four countries that together are the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland).
- England fielded a team that lost to the national side of Transylvania during the run-up to the 1994 Quidditch World Cup (GF5).
- Roderick Plumpton, who plays for the Tutshill Tornados in the League, has been Seeker for England 22 times (QA7).
- After the 1877 Quidditch World Cup - the "Tournament that Nobody Remembers", English Beater Lucas Bargeworthy was found to be missing most of his teeth (Pm).
- Ludo Bagman, who played for the Wimbourne Wasps, was a Beater for the English team in the 1980s (GF7, Pm, QA). During his trial in front of the Council of Magical Law, when accused of passing information to a Death Eater, one of the witches on the jury congratulated him on the result of the England v Turkey match the previous weekend, instead of asking any further questions. He was acquitted (GF30).
- A match listing published in the Daily Prophet sets out information for an England Under-17s v Armenia Junior Nationals Quidditch fixture (DP3).
- In 1379, an international duelling competition held on Dartmoor was won by Elizabeth Smudgling, representing England, using a simple Disarming Charm (BoS).
Notes and interesting facts:
- While still at Hogwarts, one of Gilderoy Lockhart's many boastful predictions was that he would captain the English team to victory in the Quidditch World Cup before becoming the youngest ever Minister for Magic (Pm).
- Gryffindor's Quidditch team captain Oliver Wood told Harry Potter that Charlie Weasley could have played Quidditch for England if Charlie had not taken the job in Romania studying dragons (PS10).
There is no mention of Quidditch or any other wizard sports in the Wikipedia entry for England (Wikipedia: England).
Although the date printed on the Daily Prophet Newsletter DP3 is 1 June 1999, the timeframe for that event is 1992-1993.
