  Kids to compete in Quidditch World Cup
Updated 26 September 2003, 16.36
You can play as a member of the Gryffindor team
Soon you could be playing Quidditch with kids all around the world, perhaps even competing in a special World Cup event.

But you won't actually be climbing on a broomstick to battle for the quaffle or golden snitch, because it's all a computer game.

Electronic Arts have made a new Potter game called Quidditch World Cup, and they've decided to have a global tournament to make it popular.

Kids from Europe, the US, Australia and Asia will all be able to take part, with a special grand final happening in the UK on 21 December.

In the game you'll be able to play in any of the seven positions, win the Quidditch Cup at Hogwarts and maybe even play in the Quidditch World Cup.

Details on how to take part aren't available just yet, but when they are, we'll let you know about them.
