Commentary

Notes

Germany is the home of the ancient broom game of "Stichstock". There is no mention of whether this game was played outside Germany (QA8).

Although Germany fielded a Quidditch World Cup team and had their own ancient broom game, there are no wizarding sports listed on the country's Wikipedia entry (Wikipedia: Germany).
