UPDATE:After just one short day of leaving us hanging, Pottermore announces that the cup will be awarded on July 5th!!
I’m a little surprised that it’s going out on a THURSDAY. But I am really excited they gave us a solid date. Listen to what the Insider had to say on the matter:
“Friday 22 June
Pottermore House Cup update:
The inaugural Pottermore House Cup will be awarded on the 5th of July. Join us then for the reveal. Good luck to all houses! “
The reveal makes it sound like they have something grand in store!!! Very excited. Looks like my 4th of July will be full of earning points.
Well, sort of…
This morning Pottermore updated the Insider anouncing the inaugural Pottermore House Cup!! Heres what they had to say:
Pottermore students have been working hard on their potion-making and duelling skills to earn house points for their respective houses.
Those points have been gathering and, with the numbers building up to impressive heights, we can now announce that the Pottermore House Cup will be awarded soon!
The house with the greatest number of points will win the Pottermore House Cup, so keep up the duelling and brewing!
We’ll be posting updates regarding the Pottermore House Cup both on the Insider and on the Pottermore Gateway, but also somewhere else…
We’re pleased to announce that each Pottermore house now has its own noticeboard. Your house noticeboard can be found in your house’s common room on Pottermore – make sure you visit to stay up to date with the latest house news as we begin the countdown to the announcement of the Pottermore House Cup winner. It’s an exciting time, so keep up with your brewing and duelling!
Good luck to all houses!
Unfortunately they still didn’t give us an exact date as to when this would occur, I’m not that surprised by that as Pottermore doesn’t seem to like to post exact dates. BUT according to help:
The awarding of the House Cup is the biggest event in the Pottermore calendar. You will be given a few weeks’ notice before this momentous end-of-year ceremony takes place so that you can try to earn as many points as possible in the run-up to it. On the day, the house with the most points will be awarded the House Cup.
To see which house currently has the most points, check out the leaderboards in the Great Hall. You can also see which individual in your house has earned the most points.
So this is our few weeks notice, and it seems this might just be lining up with the end of summer when we suspect that Chamber of Secrets will be launched.
