Location

Hogwarts Castle grounds, Scotland, Great Britain

"Hundreds of seats were raised in stands around the pitch so the spectators were high enough to see what was going on. At either end of the pitch were golden poles with hoops on the end."
—The Quidditch Pitch[src]

Hogwarts has its own Quidditch pitch where Quidditch teams could practice, hold try-outs and play matches against each other. Each year will see a total of six inter-house matches (each house competing for the Quidditch Cup), along with numerous training sessions by each house team [1].

Description

Quidditch Pitch

Hogwarts Quidditch pitch decorated for a Gryffindor vs. Slytherin match.

The stands surrounding the pitch are decorated differently for each Quidditch match at Hogwarts. Every second stand would be decorated with the colours of one team, and every other stand with the colours of the opposing team [2]. Spectators would sit in between these stands.

History

1995

"The Quidditch pitch was no longer smooth and flat. It looked as though somebody had been building long, low walls all over it, twisting and criss-crossing in every directions"
—The Hogwarts Quidditch pitch use in the Third Task[src]

In 1995, tall hedges were grown on it in order for it to be used as the location of the Triwizard Tournament's Third Task.

1998

In 1998 the Quidditch field is burnt down by the Snatchers in the Battle of Hogwarts.
