Less than 30 hours left to help the NY Badassilisks!
The NY Badassilisks Indiegogo fundraiser has been a FANTASTIC success, with the team raising nearly 3x their original goal. There is still time to support the team and make a donation and get some of the donation items that are available. Including their incredible new jersey’s.
These funds are used to help cover the large financial costs of transporting and housing the team at the Quidditch World Cup 7 going on this weekend at North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Badassilisks Fans Are Amazing
The NY Badassilisks are going to The Quidditch World Cup VII!
The NY Badassilisks are thrilled to be competing in another consecutive world cup. But getting to the cup can be expensive. Please check out our fund raiser at IndieGoGo and help us offset our travel costs. We have some really cool rewards for donators.
The New York Badassilisks formed about a month before Quidditch World Cup IV (in the Fall of 2010), becoming one of the first community quidditch teams ever to compete in an official IQA tournament. We have competed in every World Cup since and are looking to add World Cup VII to our list this April. We almost missed our chance to compete this year, but a few unexpected circumstances offered us a last-minute chance to join the cup, and of course we were thrilled to be able to accept!
Our team takes pride in the fact that we are a community team. We are as varied and diverse as the city we call home. We were founded by the Harry Potter meetup group, The Group That Shall Not Be Named, and have grown to include athletes, college grads, and an endless assortment of unique and talented individuals. As a community team, we follow the philosophy of “once a Badassilisk, always a Badassilisk.”
Badassilisks Mission Statement:
The Badassilisks are a community team whose goal is to compete with division 1 IQA Quidditch teams around the country and the world.
It is the responsibility of any one Badassilisk to create an inclusive, fun and competitive environment to enjoy the sport of Quidditch for their fellow teammates, potential teammates and fans and friends. Without the first two the last one is not possible.
