THE FALKLANDS WITHDRAW WITH USA URGED TO FOLLOW SUIT
Following an ongoing international dispute, the USA has been urged to withdraw their bid from the 2030 Quidditch World Cup. Though politics has little to do with the 2030 World Cup bid, international pressure has increased on the USA to apologise for the rash actions following the 2027 International Summit that ended in fractured relationships across the globe. Whilst Florida certainly seems like a popular location, and a glossy opportunity, for the USA to sweep their international issues under the rug, it seems the wider wizarding community isn’t so quick to forgive and forget, even if it does involve ‘gators and the muggle favourite ‘Disneyworld.’
Brazil, Svalbard, and Greece are pipped to be the most likely candidates to play host to the 2030 World Cup with the Falklands already having withdrawn their bid due to Britain playing host in 2026.
Russia, Canada, Taiwan and Japan have committed to their bids with unsubstantiated claims stating that the number of galleons put forward is into the millions.
Russia’s last attempt to host a World Cup ended in embarrassment when their bid for the 2018 tournament generated just three votes in the first round of voting. Whereas Canada, previously a favourite, seems to have slipped to the sidelines with the more exotic locations pushing forward.
Voting for the Quidditch World Cup host nation is set to be on 25th April with the announcement of the successful host in the following days.
