The 2002 Quidditch World Cup was an international Quidditch sporting event occurring in 2002.[1] It was the 424th edition of the World Cup.[1][2]

The final was between Bulgaria and Egypt, with Egypt winning 450 to 300.[1] This came as another crushing disappointment for Bulgaria, since the last time it had reached the final, in the 1994 World Cup, they had caught the Snitch but did not manage to secure a win. This time, outstanding Egyptian Seeker Rawya Zaghloul narrowly beat Viktor Krum to the Snitch. After the match, a tearful Krum announced his retirement.[1]
