The Quidditch Premier League is seeking a broadcast partner for its second season.

It wants to broadcast all seven of its summer 2018 fixtures, including the end of season Championship.

The League features 300 players in ten teams and runs from June to August.

The year the QPL hosted eight teams who competed across the UK, and then fought in the Championship in Hull on the 26 August.

Inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, quidditch has developed into its own sport, with 20,000 competing international players, 25 competing countries, and an international rulebook. A quidditch team consists of 21 athletes with 7 players per team on the field at any one time.

Jack Lennard, director of the Quidditch Premier League, said, "Since our launch, the Quidditch Premier League has inspired hugely diverse audiences around the world. We're thrilled to be able to offer broadcasters access to the excitement of quidditch, and cannot wait to spread the word around the globe about one of the most exclusive and fastest-growing sports in history."
