Ministry of Magic and the Wizard's Council Muggles Quidditch

The Wizards’ Council bans all Quidditch matches within 50 miles of a town or village

The Wizard’s Council is concerned about anti-Muggle precautions and issues this decree to try to curtail the exuberance of fans and players. The rule proves ineffective and further rulings over the next decades demonstrate the Council’s frustration over the issue.

Commentary

Notes

This regulation effectively makes it impossible to play Quidditch anywhere in Britain.
