Triwizard Tournament[]

First task[]

The champions had to get past a dragon, collecting the golden egg it was guarding. The champions chose different approaches:

Both Diggory and Delacour suffered injuries during their attempts.[10]

Yule Ball[]


The Great Hall, decorated for the Yule Ball

As a tradition, the Yule Ball took place on Christmas Day. Only fourth-years and above were allowed. Younger students were allowed if their partner was a fourth-year or above. The music was provided by the Weird Sisters and was opened by a dance of the champions and their partners:[11]

Second task[]

Second Task Lake

The Black Lake set up for the Second Task of the tournament

A person close to each of the champions had been taken from them and hidden (petrified) in the lake. The task for the champions was to retrieve their friends within an hour:[12]

Third task[]

On the Hogwarts Quidditch pitch, a large maze made of 20 feet high hedges was installed. The champion who reached the centre and the Tournament Cup first was to win the Tournament and the 1000 Galleon prize. The champions started according to the points they had earned so far: First Harry Potter and Cedric Diggory, then Viktor Krum and last Fleur Delacour.[13] In the end Harry Potter and the dead Cedric Diggory were found there. At the end of year feast Dumbledore gave a brief story of what had happened to Cedric Diggory and about the return of Lord Voldemort, starting the Second Wizarding War, Voldemort's Death Eater impersonator, Bartemius Crouch Jnr was captured, his soul was then destroyed by Dementor's Kiss.[14] The story of Voldemort's return was widely disbelieved, though.[15]

Rita Skeeter[]


Journalist Rita Skeeter covering the Triwizard Tournament

  • Throughout the year, Rita Skeeter wrote several articles in the Daily Prophet and Witch Weekly. All articles had in common that they mainly focused on Harry Potter and that they did not stick to the truth but were full of fabricated suggestions and misinformation.[16][17] Despite being banned from Hogwarts by Dumbledore, she secretly got interviews from several Slytherin students whose quotations were used in these articles.[14]
  • After the article in Witch Weekly which stated that Hermione Granger had betrayed Harry Potter to Viktor Krum, she received many hate mails including Howlers.[18]


The Quidditch Cup was suspended due to the school's hosting of the Triwizard Tournament.[6] No official Quidditch games were held during the year, and the pitch was used as the site of the third task.[13]

House Cup[]

The result of the House Cup is unknown, as the end of year feast was decorated in black in memory of Cedric Diggory.[15]
