2011 marks the first year that many founding quidditch players have graduated — meaning that for many people, World Cup IV was their last collegiate World Cup. To pay homage to those first players and teams who helped the sport become what it is today, the IQA will host a special alumni all-star game at World Cup 2011.
The IQA is requesting that players, captains, and fans nominate alumni players for the game, which will be played at the beginning of the finals games in Icahn Stadium on Sunday, Nov. 13.
Requirements for nominations
- Be college graduates or club team players at least 22 years of age
- Have at least two years of intercollegiate playing experience
- Have the ability to independently transport themselves to the World Cup
- Not playing on a team in World Cup V
Sending your nomination
Nominees should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Name, age, gender
- Former/current team
- Experience (number of intercollegiate games, tournaments, previous World Cups, total points scored, snitches snatches, heads bludgered, team founding/organizing abilities, etc.)
- Mugshot/photo portrait
- Basic contact information (email, cell, home town)
- Recognition (Is this player known among other teams and players in the world, nation, or region?)
- Anecdotes (any stories of general awesomeness and badassery)
- Photos of action shots from games
- Video footage
Nominees will be screened by a panel comprising IQA Regional Directors and other executive staff. Any entries that meet the basic criteria will be put up to a vote by the league at a later date.
Up to 28 players will be selected, and divided equally on to two teams, based on preferred positions. Selected players will be provided with uniforms – one team will wear blue, the other gray, in honor of the first intercollegiate game between Middlebury and Vassar.
