"Magizoologists are currently keeping Hans under close observation for ill effects. If any are discovered we will of course lobby the ICWQC for the USA’s immediate disqualification from the World Cup."
-- Liechtenstein's Minister for Magic, Otto Obermeier (Pm)

Liechtenstein National Team

The Liechtenstein National Teams come from the European country of Liechtenstein.

Quidditch

Team mascot: augurey
Their team mascot in 2014, Hans the Augurey, has his own fan club (Pm).

Liechtenstein were participants at the 2014 Quidditch World Cup tournament held in Argentina’s Patagonian desert (Pm).

  • Known members of the 2014 team were: Willi Wenzel and Otmar Frick (Chasers) and Bruno Bruunhart (Seeker).
  • They played a gruelling three-day match against the Chad National Team, their exhausted Seeker Bruunhart catching the Snitch for a 470 to 330 points win.
  • They lost their quarter-finals match against the USA by 470 to 290. During the wild celebrations by US supporters after the match, Hans the Augurey was kidnapped, causing an international incident until he was returned. Their coach and manager Ferdinand Jägendorf did not find this incident to be very funny (Pm).

Commentary

Notes

In spite of Liechtenstein having participated in Quidditch World Cup matches, there are no wizarding sports - including Quidditch - mentioned on their Wikipedia page (Wikipedia).
