JK Rowling releases 'A History Of The Quidditch World Cup' Part One
JK Rowling has published an in-depth, humorous look at the wizarding sport of Quidditch.
The billionaire writer posted 'History of the Quidditch World Cup' Part One on Pottermore, her interactive website for Harry Potter fans.
Since the site's inception in 2011, Rowling has used it as a platform for developing the world of 'Harry Potter,' publishing original writing which gives readers a glimpse into the backstories of characters and explains minutiae about the wizarding world, the Huffington Post reported.
Part one, which consists of 2,400 words, can be viewed by Pottermore members at 'The Campfire' Moment of Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, which also includes an explanation of the basic structure and rules of the tournament.
The piece also tells a number of "Infamous Tournaments," like the 1974 tourney that featured a failed attempt at banning all wands within the stadium.
