The New Zealand National Quidditch team is the national Quidditch team of New Zealand. The team are nicknamed the Kiwis.[1]


Their flag is a defaced Blue Ensign with the Union Flag in the canton, and four red stars with white borders to the right. The stars represent the constellation of Crux, the Southern Cross.



The team partook in the 2014 Quidditch World Cup held in Argentina. The team was managed by Charlie Baverstock.

They were knocked out in the first round on May 20th against Bulgaria. Their Chaser Dennis Moon was sent off in controversial circumstances, after colliding with Bulgarian Chaser Bogomil Levski in the 106th minute, in an incident which looked accidental to many spectators, but the referee Georgios Xenakis ruled had been caused by Moon. Bulgarian Seeker Viktor Krum beat Ngapo Ponika to the Snitch.
