In 2010, the Chinese National Quidditch team participated in the 2010 Quidditch World Cup. The final was between China and Moldova, with Moldova winning 750 to 640. The match lasted three days, and it was widely held to have produced some of the finest Quidditch seen this century.[2]

In 2019, members of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force accompanied a team of Magizoologists from the Calamity World Centre in England to China, where they spent several days in stillness trying to safely see and capture a Demiguise, which benefited them as a test of patience, perseverance, and focus.[4]
