"....if this is what they do when they get into the semis, imagine what we’re facing if they reach the final. I’m thinking security trolls."
-- an ICWQC official after the USA win over Liechtenstein (Pm)

United States National Team

The national teams from the North American country of the United States.

Quidditch

Quidditch was slow to catch on in the United States, where the game of Quodpot reigns supreme. It has been steadily gaining in popularity (QA8Pm).

The US team had been captained twice by Seeker Maximus Brankovitch III at the time of the publication of Quidditch Through the Ages (QA8).

The US team were participants at the 2014 Quidditch World Cup in Argentina (Pm):

Quodpot

The most popular broom sport in the United States, Quodpot is played in the Americas. It is also played in other countries as a "minority sport", but has never eclipsed the worldwide popularity of Quidditch (QA8Pm).

Commentary

Notes

Perhaps fearing another mascot kidnapping, the Japanese team presented the US team with a Hoo-hoo chick after the third place play-off match at the 2014 Quidditch World Cup (Pm).

Quidditch is listed under "other recreational sports" on the US sports Wikipedia page (Wikipedia: Sports in the United States) and there are organised matches for this Muggle form of the game (US Quidditch).
