FIFA has been forced to cancel its 2022 World Cup in Canada because of safety concerns.
The decision comes as officials in Canada continue to investigate a deadly accident involving a Quidditched World Cup bid that killed a British woman.
The announcement was made Wednesday by the FIFA office in Zurich.
The UConn student who died was an avid Quiddich player who loved to play.
The soccer team played the 2022 World Series at the University of Connecticut, the school’s home since 2002.
The NCAA announced it would host the 2019 World Cup there next year.
Quidditch was popular at Uconn.
The team played three World Cup games in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
In 2012, the Quidditchers were awarded the inaugural UConn Soccer Bowl, the first time the UConn football team had been awarded a national championship.
The university has hosted other major events in the past.
In 2015, the U.S. won the women’s national soccer team’s first ever World Cup qualifying tournament.
