Behind the scenes states the first match should have been in 422. Is this a typo? Should this be 1422? Mafalda Hopkirk 14:44, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
- I believe it is, but it shouldn't be 1422. 422 world cups x 4 (years between them) = 1688 (years). 1994 (year on GoF) - 1688 = 306. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 14:48, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
- Yeah.... math isn't my strong suit. If you say so I'll just nod along. Mafalda Hopkirk 16:15, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
Like there are many computer games for Harry Potter, and one is about the quidditch world cup (me and a friend had it when we were little) and the teams were (we played it so many times i can still remember them): England, France, Spain, USA, Japan, Australia, Bulgaria, The Nordic Team and Germany —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Potterfan1997 (talk • contribs).
world cup 1993
the quidditch world cup harry attended is said to be in 1994 here, but I believe that if you calculate it, this is not true, you see, harry's parents died in 1980, which we read in the deathly hallows, when harry was 1 year old. so if he was one year old in 1980, when his parents died, and he was 14 (seeing it is the 4th book) when he attended the quidditch world cup, surely, we can all see the world cup was held in 1993, and NOT 1994 . just tought i'd let you all know...Hexecho134 14:53, August 1, 2011 (UTC) by hexecho134
- I think you have misread Deathly Hallows. Harry was born in 1980, Lily and James were murdered in 1981, when Harry was 1. The Quidditch World Cup took place the summer before his fourth year at Hogwarts, so it was the summer of '94. -- 15:21, August 1, 2011 (UTC)

- That's a good question; the Lexicon's timeline seems to think it was on the 25th, though I'm not always inclined to trust them either. ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:02, June 15, 2013 (UTC)
- Yes, but they don't have a source either. I think it was on 18 August - the narration states that the Dursleys would have been rid of Harry "two weeks earlier than anyone could have hoped" if they let him go on the day prior. Two weeks being fourteen days and the normal date for Harry to leave being 1 September, we therefore have only to subtract fourteen days from the 1st of September. There are 31 days in August, therefore 31-14=17. So Harry left the 17th, slept over and the next day (the 18th) was the World Cup match. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 21:09, June 15, 2013 (UTC)
