NGBs that are considered Full Members or Developing Regions by the IQA are guaranteed at least one spot for one of their teams at EQC. Those considered Emerging Areas by the IQA do not have that guarantee. However, having a certain amount of spots at EQC set aside for teams Emerging Areas is an important tradition of the tournament, and will continue to be a cornerstone of EQC.
To find out more about the process of applying for one of these Emerging Area spots, as well as the guidelines Quidditch Europe uses to choose the teams that will be invited to participate in the tournament, please see the Emerging Area Spot Allocation Process document below.
