The IQA World Cup VI was the 2013 edition of the IQA World Cup (now the US Quidditch Cup), a quidditch club tournament then organized by the International Quidditch Association.[1][2][3][4] The tournament was hosted in Kissimmee, Florida from April 13–14, 2013.

The Cup featured 77 teams from four countries. 60 of the teams competed in the D1 division, and 17 teams competed in the D2 division. The D1 winner was University of Texas, who defeated UCLA in the championship match.[5][6][7][8][9] This marked the first time that Middlebury College did not win the Cup. The D2 division was won by Sam Houston State University who defeated Loyola University New Orleans, making the championships an all-Texas affair.[10][11][12]

Due to the increasingly large number of official member teams, Division 1 was not open to all comers and was limited to 60 teams who earned their spot in the World Cup by competing in regional tournaments.[13] Division 2 consisted of other official teams who did not earn their spot at regionals but still wanted to compete.

Format[edit]

The format of the Cup was pool play, followed by a 36-team bracket. The 60 teams were divided into 12 pools of five teams each. Each team played the four other teams in their pool, and the top three teams from each pool advanced to the 36-team bracket.
