The Phoenix Sol will forfeit their series on August 6 against the Los Angeles Guardians due to a lack of available players. All three matches will be considered 60*-0 victories for the Guardians in the league’s standings as outlined in the MLQ Forfeit Policy.
“We, regrettably, will be forced to forfeit our series against the Guardians due to an undersized roster,” said Phoenix Sol Manager Brentlee Cass. “We would like to apologize to the league and to any fans who were looking forward to this series. Although we’ve had trouble with the last couple series, you have our word we will be in attendance and ready to compete at Championship.”
No further penalties will be placed upon the team by the league. All referees and snitches scheduled for the series will be paid.
“We understand this has been an ongoing issue for the squad, but they did absolutely everything in their power to put together a roster for this series. We have faith the team will pull through for Championship,” said MLQ Co-Chair Amanda Dallas.
In place of the August 6 series, the Guardians will be scrimmaging at Whaley Park from 3 pm to 6 pm PDT against members of various US Quidditch West teams. Fans are encouraged to come out, watch the scrimmages and cheer on the Guardians.
