New Spain National Team

New Spain National Team

The New Spain National Teams come from the North American country of New Spain. This is an old name for the country of Mexico.

Quidditch

New Spain’s Quidditch team were finalists in the 1809 Quidditch World Cup, a disaster more commonly referred to as “The Attack of the Killer Forest“. While New Spain were ahead of them on points, Niko Nenad, a member of the Romanian team, hit a Bludger into the nearby Siberian forest, which he had enchanted to rise up and march against the players and crowd (Pm).

Commentary

Notes

While New Spain, the core of which became Mexico after 1821, fielded a Quidditch team in the 1809 Quidditch World Cup final, there are no Quidditch or other wizarding sports teams listed in its Wikipedia entry (Wikipedia) or in the entry for its successor, Mexico (Wikipedia).

It is not specified whether the modern teams have also renamed themselves to the Mexican National Teams.
