Harry Potter World Cup Launched

ON Monday MTV News Launched the Harry Potter World Cup, a month-long tournament that will have fans voting online to lay to rest, once-and-for-all, the question, "Who is the greatest Harry Potter character of all time?"

Will Harry, Ron and Hermione remain fan favorites or will Voldemort, Draco Malfoy or another villain slink through to victory? 64 will compete, but only one will emerge as the Wizarding World's Champion and it's up to you.

As announced by James and Oliver Phelps (the Weasley twins), the Harry Potter World Cup will launch on Monday, June 20th with an intensity and fierceness rivaled only by the most extreme Quidditch matches ever seen. Round by round, the single-elimination event will unfold online with fans championing, fighting and voting for the character they believe is the greatest in J.K. Rowling's epic fantasy series. The two finalists will be announced on Monday, July 11th, kicking off a championship round just days before the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2. The winner will be revealed during MTV News' livestream coverage of the film's red carpet premiere in New York City. In addition to voting online at, fans are also encouraged to utilize the official Twitter hashtag #mtvpottercup to spread the word about voting.

Each round will feature new videos and articles from Harry Potter stars, experts and fans handicapping the race.

The Harry Potter World Cup Tournament Voting Schedule is as follows:
Round 1 Monday, June 20th through Sunday, June 26th
Round 2 Monday, June 27th through Thursday, June 30th at Midnight
Sweet 16 Friday, July 1st through Tuesday, July 5th at Midnight
Elite 8 Wednesday, July 6th through Thursday, July 7th at Midnight
