The Chauncey Cup
Quidditch is a wizarding sport played on broomsticks. It is the most popular game and most well-known among wizards and witches. The object of the game is to score more points than your opponents. Each goal is worth 10 points and catching the Snitch is worth one-hundred fifty points. The game ends when the Snitch is caught or an agreement is reached between the captains of both teams.
The game got its popularity among college students from the Harry Potter series.
While Quidditch was the first (and so far, only) broomstick-based game to attain near-worldwide popularity amongst the wizarding people, it was certainly not the first broomstick game. Quidditch probably owes a debt to a number of its forerunners in making it what it is today. All of these archaic broom games were popular in localized areas, but none had the vast appeal that Quidditch has today.
