Quidditch is a full-contact, gender-integrated sport created in the popular Harry Potter series. The league was founded in 2015.

“Howard County is known across the region for its exceptional recreation facilities, which attract a variety of tournaments, league games and practices,” Ball said in a news release. “The 2020 Major League Quidditch Championship will bring yet another unique sporting event to our community.”

In 2018, Troy Park at Elkridge hosted the United States Quidditch Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship.

“Every last detail of the Troy Park complex, from the press boxes to the support structures, was so carefully designed that I know we will be able to run our most successful championship yet,” MLQ Commissioner Ethan Sturm said.
