HOGWARTS, UK – QUIFA announced today that the 2010 Quidditch World Cup would be played in Black Rock City. Sixteen teams will be competing throughout the week for the Golden Broom trophy. The English team is the favourite, assuming they can stop being such pussies about volcanic ash clouds.
The DPW is erecting a state-of-the-art Quidditch stadium for the tournament with a retractable roof and floor. Naming rights for the stadium have not been settled due to the lack of commerce within the city, but several camps including Bacon Without Borders and Flying Broom Camp are under serious consideration. The Death Guild was dropped from contention after pictures of the ‘Hot Topic’ incident surfaced on the internet.
Black Rock City was an underdog bid to host the games largely due to its lack of commerce and unpredictable weather, but beat out several other locations including Shangri-La, The Lost City of Gold, and a land called Honah Lee.
