Referees

According to section 10.1 of the IQA Rulebook 2018-2020, for each game, there must be one Head Referee, at least two Assistant Referees, one Snitch Referee, one scorekeeper, and one snitch runner. There may additionally be up to two additional Assistant Referees, one timekeeper, and two goal judges.

Besides the IQA Rulebook, the IQA Casebook 2019-2020 also provides guidance to the referees.

One can become an internationally-certified and registered quidditch referee (a Head Referee, Assistant Referee, or Snitch Referee) by passing the assessment set by the International Quidditch Association. You can find all internationally-certified and registered quidditch referees here.

According to the IQA Membership Status System (last updated December 2019), a document released by the International Quidditch Association, Hong Kong has the most internationally-certified and registered referees among all Asian countries. Hong Kong is also the only Asian country with internationally-certified and registered Head Referees. Our Association strives to nurture more internationally-certified and registered quidditch referees in Hong Kong for the development and growth of the sport.
