It may seem like something straight out of the world of Harry Potter, but Ireland will be represented at the European Quidditch Games in Oslo this week.
The second edition of the biennial tournament is divided into three groups of five teams with the Irish grouped alongside Slovakia, The Netherlands, Poland and Sweden.
For anyone unfamiliar with the sport made famous by Harry and his pals, take a look at the video below.
Of course, there are no magic broomsticks involved in the real-life version. That would just be ridiculous.
The tournament takes place from Friday to Sunday and was won in 2015 by France. If you're interested in following the boys and girls in green, check out the link in the tweet below which provides a live stream for each match.
