The Quidditch uniform is a specialised type of wizarding clothing that must be worn by every player in an official Quidditch match.


When playing a game, players have to wear standard equipment and uniform. They have a cape and jersey with shin and arm guards. They also wear gloves, with fingerless gloves being permitted.

Players have their own position which may have their own equipment. For example, Beaters carry bats and Keepers wear protective head and chestgear.


Professional Quidditch teams

Each team's robes have their own colours and either logos or insignia. They have a special meaning to the team and their fans.

Hogwarts Quidditch teams

At Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, every team play in the colours of their house.

The Gryffindor Quidditch team's uniform is red and gold, the Slytherin's is green and silver, the Hufflepuff Quidditch team's is yellow and black, and the Ravenclaw's is blue and bronze.

However, they have changed their general appearance several times. The colours of the team have changed shade.

From 1991 to 1993, the robes had shorter sleeves and tie fastenings on the front, while the trousers were white. From the 1993-1994 school year, the robes had jersey numbers with the players' last name on the back.

In the 1996-1997 school year, during the try-outs, they had a jersey with the player's number on the front and back, but no longer had the player's last name. The back of the jersey went all the way down to the players ankles, and the front stopped at the players waist, making it look like there was a cape attached to the back of the jersey that started at the waist. The Keeper started to wear protective shields on their chest, arms and legs. They also started wearing a helmet.

It is unknown whether the jersey numbers have a specific one given to a certain position. Harry wore the jersey with the number seven often as Seeker. In the 1994 Quidditch World Cup, Seeker Viktor Krum wore the jersey number seven. However, someone else was seen wearing it at try-outs for the Gryffindor Quidditch team in 1996.
