Gameplay Schedule

The gameplay schedule for our three MLQ Championship competitions will be released in August.

  • Saturday and Sunday - Benepe Cup: Witness the top 12 teams in MLQ duke it out for the main title.
  • Sunday - MLQ Next Gen Showcase: Get a sneak peek at the next generation of MLQ talent during our new MLQ Next Gen Showcase featuring MLQ's practice squad athletes from across the league.
  • Monday - Take Back the Pitch: Take Back the Pitch is a showcase that challenges the current understanding of gender in quidditch and opens opportunities for gender diverse athletes to play quidditch out from under the scrutiny of misogyny, transmisogyny, and misdirected misogyny. Through The Gender Diversity Initiative, MLQ seeks to address the very real ramifications of sexism and transphobia for cis and trans women, non-binary folk, and trans men. Through the open-access Take Back the Pitch tournament, MLQ aims to highlight and lift up athletes that are overlooked by their teams and in the community on account of sex and gender, and give them the leadership opportunities, playing time and diverse skill training they deserve all the time. Registration is open to any quidditch player who is not a cis male. All skill levels welcome.


The official hotels of the 2021 MLQ Championship are the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Columbia and Best Western Plus BWI Airport Hotel.
