The game of Quidditch was introduced to New Zealand in the seventeenth century and Australia in the eighteenth century (QA8).

In the Far East and Asia, flying carpets have been more popular than brooms, so broom sports like Quidditch were slow to catch on (QA8). The exception is Japan, where it is believed that some Hogwarts students attempting a ill-judged round the world trip on brooms brought Quidditch into the country, when they were rescued by teachers from the Mahoutokoro Wizarding School (Pm).

Known Quidditch teams in these areas are:

Asia

Oceania (the "Antipodes")

Commentary

Notes

It is likely that schools in the Asia and Oceania also field Quidditch teams as the training is mentioned, although there are no specific references to school teams or tournaments:

Although the date printed on the Daily Prophet Newsletter DP3 is 1 June 1999, the timeframe for that event is 1992-1993.
