According to Pottermore, Quidditch is a sport that has been played in the wizarding world for almost 1,000 years. The game is a mixed gender sport played on broomsticks where the objective is to score as many points as possible and end when the golden snitch is caught.
The game is made up of four different types of players. The first type is the keeper (like Oliver Wood and Ron Weasley), whose job it is to guard the three large goal posts from the three chasers. Their job is to send the quaffle (ball) into the opposing team's goal posts.
Next, there are two beaters whose job it is to keep the bludger (an iron ball) from hitting their teammates and directing it to the other team's players. Lastly, there is a seeker, whose job is to catch the snitch to earn 150 points and end the game.
Much like other world cups and Olympic Games, the Quidditch World Cup is held every four years where the final two teams compete for the trophy and the title of being the best in the world.
