    Founded in 2015, MLQ is the equivalent of the NFL or the MLB for quadball. The league is home to 16 franchises across North America that compete in three geographic divisions during the regular season for qualification spots at the MLQ Championship. The regular season runs from June to August.

    Originally adapted from the Harry Potter series, quadball is a mixed-gender, full-contact sport invented in 2005 by students at Middlebury College in Vermont. It is now played by 600 teams in 40 countries. The rules incorporate a mix of elements from basketball, rugby and dodgeball.

    The MLQ Championship is the league’s signature event and features three competitions in one weekend: the Benepe Cup, the Next Gen Showcase and Take Back the Pitch.
