More than 40 broomstick-riding teams are competing in the two-day Quidditch world cup tournament in New York City.

Long a fictional fixture of the Harry Potter novels and movies about teenage wizards, the sport features players who fly on broomsticks. But in real life, the rules have been adapted to a ground game for “muggles” — humans without magical powers.

Teams from around the world that competed in a Manhattan park Saturday with rules similar to the sport created by J.K. Rowling in her books. The matches call for chasers, beaters, keepers, seekers and a snitch. Goals must be score and the snitch caught.

The tournament continues Sunday.
