Department of Magical Games and Sports History

The Department of Magical Games and Sports was established under Minister Grogan Stump between 1811 and 1819. Over the years the department created various regulations to maintain secrecy and safety. In 1894, the department banned shooting arrows into the air at Quidditch matches as was tradition at Appleby Arrows games when they scored a goal after referee Nugent Potts was pierced through the nose at a game. The majority of what the department does currently is deal with organizing events, such as the Quidditch World Cup. A few famous heads of the department include former Montrose Magipies player Hamish MacFarlan, and Ludovic Bagman, until he fled due to his gambling debts with Goblin creditors.
