With space for a performance stage area, vendors, and nine quidditch fields, the Harlem River Event site on Randall’s Island will hold up to 33,000 people over the two days of World Cup competition, from Nov. 12 to 13.
However, the adjacent stadium, where the semi-finals, all-star alumni game, and Division 2 and Division 1 championships will be held on Sunday night, is limited to 4,500 seats. While this is more than any field on the main event site, it still limits the amount of tickets available, and also increases the price of the event due to the stadium’s rental fee.
With over 2,000 players attending the 2011 World Cup, it is not possible for the IQA to give up half of its championship tickets for free. However, the IQA is still offering tickets for World Cup players that reduce the retail price by 33 per cent.

Players who wish to gain access to the discounted championship tickets should sign up on the QWC player registry, whether they are actually playing for their team or not. Any player who has not signed up yet should email their captain immediately to gain access to the player signup form.
The password to access discounted championship tickets online will be distributed to players ONLY later today.
Any players who purchased tickets in advance to any of the finals matches listed above will be reimbursed for the cost of the tickets.
The IQA is excited and honored to be hosting its most important matches of the year in a world-class sports venue like Icahn Stadium.
