Question: I have purchased tickets and will be staying in Manhattan for the weekend. How do i get to the island? I have no idea how to use the subways, buses or otherwise. I heard there are water taxis but I don't know where to get them or the fees associated. Do I need to reserve one? Can you help?
Answer: We will be posting information about the water taxi in the next two weeks. If you want to find out about buses etc., check out RISF's website: http://randallsisland.org/maps-directions/getting-to-randalls-island/
 
Question: can I camp overnight between saturday and sunday on the island?
Answer: Unfortunately not, the Parks Dept. does not permit people to camp on city property. Maybe some day when the World Cup is in the countryside somewhere....
 
Question: Will you be doing live streams of some of the matches for those who can't make it?
Answer: We will be doing live streams, but we recommend coming to the event if possible. There is nothing like seeing the World Cup in person.

Answer: Final tickets are currently called Championship tickets. We will adjust that on the welcome page to avoid future confusion. Thanks for pointing that out.
 
Question: Do you have a travel agency or planner to assist those who have never been to NYC and would like to coordinate overnight accommodations? How are ticket sales going?
Answer: Yes, we have a hotel package set up at a hotel close to LaGuardia airport and 10 minutes from the event site. Email Marie Sperling at marie@allaboutgrouptravel.com

Answer: Hi Guillaume, please email press@internationalquidditch.org and we will send you more information.
 
Question: Where will the Water Taxi be leaving Manhattan? I am staying at 77th and York, so I'm not too far from Randall's Island. I just need to know where to take the subway to.
Answer: We are about to post information about the water taxi, but as an advance, I can tell you that you are very lucky - the Water Taxi will depart from 90th and the east river. It will be $8 round trip.
 
Question: Will you guys stop selling tickets at any point? Is there a limit?
Answer: We will probably be selling general admission tickets up until the event, however, Championship tickets are limited and will probably sell out well-before the event. We will do our best to give people a heads up, but no guarantees.
 
Question: Can i upgrade to a VIP ticket later, after buying a weekend pass and Championship tix?
Answer: We can probably figure out a way to do that for you. Please email worldcup@internationalquidditch.org. Also please be aware that roughly half of the VIP tickets have already been sold, so we recommend you do this soon..
 
Question: Does the weekend kid's pass include admission to the Championship games?
Answer: We're sorry but the weekend kid's pass does not include admission to the championships. Because seats in the championships are limited and the event is very expensive, we unfortunately can't cut our prices there.
 
Question: I'm confused with the tickets. If I buy a weekend pass I have to leave at 5pm before finals? Or are finals another day?
Answer: Finals are on the same day. They are ticketed separately because they are in a stadium (right next to the main fields) that has only 5,000 seats, while the main event space for World Cup can hold up to 30,000 people. You do not HAVE to leave, but you won't really be able to see the finals unless you buy a ticket. And to clarify, that's sunday, nov 13.
 
Question: I paid $11.50 each for 5 tickets for Saturday's games at least two months ago - what did I pay for and what does that include? What do you mean by "reserved tickets?" Do I have to pay MORE now?!
Answer: To be honest, we're not really sure what you mean, but if you bought tickets, then you are all set. That is definitely the correct price for saturday tickets. If you have further questions, email worldcup@internationalquidditch.org
 
Question: If I don't want to pay that much for VIP access but still want to see everything, can I buy a Weekend Pass *and* a pass for the Championships? Or is it limited to one or the other?
Answer: Yes, you can absolutely buy both and should if you want to see everything.

Question: When will the schedule of the matches on both days be available? I want to be sure to see my university's team play!
Answer: The schedule will be posted as soon as final registration closes and playing pools are selected, which will take place by November 1st at the latest. Each team will have a guaranteed 3 games on Saturday and 1 game on Sunday, additional games will be based on whether or not they advance to single-elimination rounds.
 
Question: suggestions on where to stay if coming from out of town, like hotels and stuff close enough to use subway to get to ferry I have not ever stayed in or been in the city.
Answer: We have a fan hotel package that includes a bus ride to and from the fields. Check it out here: http://www.allaboutgrouptravel.com/iqasignupfans.html
 
Question: The water taxi tickets only state nov 12th, will they be good for sunday also?
Answer: The water taxi ticket is good for just one day, but it can be used for either day. If you want to use the water taxi both days, you need to buy two tickets.
 
Question: Can I buy tickets at the event or do I need to buy them in advance?
Answer: You can buy tickets day-of, but they will be slightly more expensive at the door.
 
Question: The time on the tickets for the Saturday pass says 10am. Does this mean I can't see the opening ceremony?
Answer: That's when the games start. You can definitely see the opening ceremony, in fact we hope that lots of people come! It will be in Icahn Stadium. More info will be published closer to the date.

Question: If we buy VIP passes, do we /have/ to sit in the reserved seating? I want to be able to sit with my friends who can't afford the VIP passes and won't be able to sit in that section, so I was just wondering. Also, can you give any details on the advantages of the 'VIP Areas' in case I won't be able to use the seats? Just want to know what I'm getting. Thanks. :)

Question: What's the difference between Division 1 and division 2?
Answer: In the IQA, teams self-select into divisions. Division 1 teams tend to be more experienced and more competitive, D2 teams are in it for the fun, but all of them are entertaining and often downright thrilling to watch.
 
Question: What day is the champion ship on and what are the times?
Answer: The championship match is on Sunday, November 13, in Icahn Stadium. It is part of the finals, which include an alumni all-star game, D1 semi-finals, D2 championships, and D1 championships. This will all last roughly three hours and starts at 6 PM, doors open at 5 PM (the stadium has a separate entrance from the rest of the event and is therefore ticketed separately).
 
Question: If I bring my dogs can they sit with us in the VIP section if those are the tickets we buy? Are there any limits to where the dogs can go?
Answer: It is a public park so dogs are allowed. We will put your VIP seat on an aisle so your dog can sit next to you. Just make sure they don't run on to the field and start chasing the snitch! FYI your dog might not be allowed in Icahn Stadium....we are looking into that right now.
 
Question: I plan to attend on Sunday and bought a Sunday pass and a Championships ticket. The tickets are labelled correctly, but both tickets say November 12 , 10 a.m.. Sunday is November 13. Will there be any problem using these tickets on Sunday?
Answer: No, you'll be fine, as long as it says "sunday" and/or lists the sunday price (we set all of the tickets to have unique prices).
 
Question: What's the refund policy?
Answer: You get a refund if the event is canceled. If you bought a ticket and do not wish to attend any longer, please email worldcup@internationalquidditch.org and an IQA rep will discuss the details with you.
 
Question: Is the site(s) Handicapped Accessible?
Answer: Yes. Including the stadium.
 
Question: When does the water taxi start running each day? Is the time on the ticket the time for the taxi we will be on?
Answer: We will need to assess ticket volume first, and then talk to the Water Taxi company over the next two weeks to set up a schedule. It will be posted on the World Cup website the week of the event, but rest assured that there will be at least several optional departure and arrival times each day.
 
Question: are we allowed to bring our own chairs
Answer: Yes, you may bring your own chair, but you should know that each of the nine fields on the main event site will have 300 chairs and 250 bleacher seats. VIPs can reserve seats on each field in advance once the schedule is posted. The stadium for finals of course seats 4,500.
