Quidditch was introduced to New Zealand some time in the seventeenth century by a group of European herbologists. After a long day collecting samples, the wizards would relax by playing Quidditch. The New Zealand Ministry of Magic has spent a lot of effort in trying to keep early Maori art depicting white wizards playing the game away from Muggles.[1]

The Moutohora Macaws are a Quidditch team from New Zealand, with the team mascot being a Phoenix named Sparky.[1]
