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 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 were a Quidditch team from New Zealand. Their team mascot was a Phoenix named Sparky.[1]

The New Zealand National Quidditch team competed in the 2014 Quidditch World Cup. They lost to Bulgaria 410 to 170 during the sixth match on 20 May 2014.[2][3]
