"That's not just a broomstick, Harry, it's a Nimbus 2000!"
Ron Weasley on Harry's new broom[src]

In 1991, Harry Potter received a Nimbus 2000 broomstick.[1]

History

This was arranged by Professor Minerva McGonagall after he made the Gryffindor Quidditch team.[1] He rode this broom in all school Quidditch matches until 1993, when, during a match against Hufflepuff, he was attacked by Dementors and fell off his broom. The broom crashed into the Whomping Willow and was broken beyond repair. His friends returned the remains to Harry in a bag, but he decided to keep them instead of throwing them away.[2]

This was Harry's only broom that was not a gift from his godfather, as his Firebolt and his toy broomstick were both given to him by Sirius.
