  1. US Quidditch Cup 12 is coming up in just under two weeks, and the gameplay format was just announced, so naturally, I've been thinking a lot about quidditch lately. I wouldn't be here on this website if I didn't think about uniforms, and a lot of quidditch teams have pretty bad uniforms. You can probably see where this is heading. (If you read that paragraph and were like "back up. you play what???" then you should know that quidditch is hella fun and you should also check out these links.) Anyway, I'm planning to redesign the 84 teams participating in USQC12. Here are my guidelines: 1. The main thing I wanted to accomplish was to better align collegiate quidditch teams with the rest of their schools' athletic programs. I don't know if it will actually help, but I feel like people might take quidditch more seriously if their uniforms were a little less ridiculous and, more importantly, if they didn't have names like Wyverns and Narwhals. (You might argue that quidditch teams shouldn't take themselves seriously; I'd counter that we can manage to not take ourselves seriously no matter what we're wearing.) That said, I did try to base my designs at least a little bit on what teams have worn in the past. 2. Every team gets two, and exactly two, jerseys, a primary and a clash. A lot of quidditch teams don't have a ton of budget and can really only afford one jersey, which is fine for the most part, but can sometimes give you games that look like this one between Virginia Tech and South Carolina. Some teams already have two jerseys, so I figure this isn't too crazy. 3. Given that a lot of quidditch games occur at large tournaments, I wanted to make sure all sets were as mix-and-match-able as possible so that a full change wasn't necessary every time a team had to wear its clash uniform. Lots of teams will only get one pair of shorts and one pair of socks for this reason, or they'll have a pair that will be more of an alternate. I'm planning to run through the teams by division, then alphabetically by region, and then alphabetically by name. First, though, I wanted to show off my modified USQ logo: First off, that shield's awfully rough, so I picked a new one. I based it off the one used by Middlebury College, since they invented the sport and all. I also updated the player's equipment: brooms haven't had bristles since 2014, players haven't worn capes since 2011, and the snitch has never actually been able to fly (that ball is now either a quaffle or bludger depending on your viewpoint). I swapped the colors to make blue more dominant, brightened the red a little bit, and I added the "USQ" on the side both for better brand recognition and to try and fill up all that space left behind by the cape. I don't feel like I changed much but I wrote this whole paragraph about it, so maybe I did? I should have the first team up soon, but in the meantime, what do you think? If you have any questions about quidditch in general, I'm happy to answer them too.
  2. Hello all, As a fan of Harry Potter, I wish that there were more Quidditch concepts here on the boards. So here is my attempt to add some more concepts to the forum. I have created concepts for the Quidditch World Cup (QWC), which is extremely similar to the soccer World Cup. The QWC happens every four years, and according to the math of Harry Potter, 2018 is the next year for the QWC. So, I have in mind 32 different countries to create logos and Quidditch Kits for, and then to move to a professional quidditch league of some sort. We'll see where this project goes, but without further ado, I present to you all, the 2018 QWC logo. The 2018 QWC takes place in the United Kingdom, hence the blue and red . The snitch is featured because the snitch is the most important aspect of a quidditch game, not to mention the QWC trophy I designed has a snitch on it. As always, C&C appreciated! The first two team's logos and kits will be up sometime today!
  3. I was in the mood for some "nerdy" concepts this weekend, so I decided to cover the four houses of Hogwarts with new Quidditch uniforms. First up is Ravenclaw. I think the colour choices are pretty obvious. For some reason I felt stars would be a good look for that house.
  4. Hello, I play real-world Quidditch, a version of the magical sport from the Harry Potter universe. Real-life Quidditch is a full-contact, co-ed sport that involves four balls and a mix of basketball, rugby, handball, dodgeball, et cetera, all with a broom between your legs. If you haven't seen it played, this is what it looks like at the collegiate level. Now that you've finished laughing... Two years ago Major League Quidditch was founded as a "professional" league in the US. Professional in quotations as the players aren't paid, it mostly functions as an off-season league for the top collegiate and club players. There are currently 16 teams, and there is talk of further expansion, especially in Florida (The nearest teams are in DC and Louisiana). I've talked with MLQ people and I'm determined to be a part of this team, at least on the organizational level. This is my concept for a possible Orlando team, design-wise. I recently learned that "Juice" was one of the possible names for the Orlando Magic, and I really liked the citrus imagery for a Central Florida team. It's a bit out of the ordinary but given the other unique team names (Cleveland Riff, New Orleans Curse) I think it will fit in with the league. I also included "Squeeze" as a possible team name. If you'd like to see some current MLQ jerseys and designs, click here and here. Quidditch uniform designs are somewhere between soccer and baseball. My design concept is attached, it's mostly a rough sketch of a team identity. I'm not an expert in Illustrator so I'd prefer a professional to do the final design, but I wanted to see what y'all think of my idea. Thanks!
  5. Hi guys, I'm working on a new logo, this time for a team called the Thundercats. Here's what I'm thinking will be the primary: I like it a lot, but something feels off. I think it's the eyes? I have a wordmark and a secondary logo planned as well.
  6. Now, obviously Quidditch is the fictional sport from Harry Potter, is played on flying broomsticks, etc. Buuuuut… Muggle Quidditch is not played on flying brooms, and holds a lot of popularity on some college campuses. What it really needs, I thought, is to be brought to the masses. Make it a sport that everybody can play and everybody can love, and that can fill up some empty arena dates in the spring/summer/fall when there is no basketball or hockey. Make it something everyone will want to watch. I worked out an indoor ‘pitch’ for the game, and the rules. I’m not much of an artist but I do plan to do some team concepts nonetheless, and what I hope for is a group project where anyone who wants to could submit their own ‘Arena Quidditch’ team. A community project, basically. As far as rules go, many are taken straight from the International Quidditch Association. They have the idea, but what I’ve done is moved the game indoors, and turned the game from a campus lark to something that could become a major sport. *please suspend your disbelief* Now, the Arena Quidditch Association is an international sport structure that maintains the rules of the indoor game, and organizes the game into levels and leagues, much like FIFA would for association football (soccer). There are two major top-flight leagues, one in North America and one in Europe. Like soccer, there are lower leagues and a promotion-relegation system, so that any group can attempt to become the best in the world. Each year, there would be an international tournament of the top teams from each league (including lower leagues), so that even squads who haven’t made it to the apex of the sport can still get some face time with an international audience. Arena Quidditch Association rules: The pitch: Attacking Zone Goal Hoops (centres are 36", 54" and 72" off the pitch, inner diameter of 42" each) Summary: Because the game of Muggle Quidditch first began on college campuses in the United States and Canada, the sport is most popular in college towns and among the younger demographic. However, due to the game’s associations to British literature and JK Rowling’s descriptions of Wizard Quidditch teams in the books, many (but certainly not all) teams will follow soccer naming traditions (United, City, QC, or simply a location name). The general uniform worn by Muggle Quidditch players is shorts, a short-sleeved shirt and a cape. The full robes seem overkill if you’re not able to have them trailing in the wind while flying, but if anyone has any suggestions for whether that should be considered the standard apparel for Arena Quidditch, I’d love to hear your input. That is one thing I certainly haven’t decided. Teams could be placed in any small- medium- or large-sized city or borough, as long as there is an appropriate arena available. Team names can be local, regional, etc, derived from something magical or not, a Potter reference or not, etc. Think original!
  7. Come the year 2026, while in the Muggle world wars seem to have finally come to an end, in the wizarding world, Quidditch live their golden years, with Brazil surprising everyone and winning 3 of the last five World Cups. The country of South America will host the edition of this year. Let's see what we can expect from the 20 participants this year.
  8. Hi guys! Well, my name is Lucas Carvalho, but my friends call me Elece. I am passionate about sports, mainly football. I'm a fan of Flamengo since I was born, I live in Rio de Janeiro. I hope to improve a lot here in the forum. Well, I had the idea of ​​Quidditch uniforms, for some time, while watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and decided to put into practice now. Brought these uniforms and logo of Heildelberg Hawks, to give you an idea of ​​what I want to do. I would also like to hear suggestions on what to improve, and maybe I'll start a series with a Quidditch World Cup.
