Congratulations Hufflepuff on winning the fourth Pottermore House Cup!

On Thursday September 12th, yellow shone through the Great Hall as Hufflepuff won the fourth Pottermore House Cup. Members of Hufflepuff were seen in high spirits in the Great Hall under their house banners, surrounded by loud cheers. Members of Slytherin, Gryffindor and Ravenclaw brought pride to their houses by graciously accepting defeat and congratulating the winners.

It was a hard fought competition and during the past four months each one of the four houses held the lead at one point or another, but it was the hard-working Hufflepuffs that managed to reach the award ceremony on top. It is the first Pottermore House Cup victory for Hufflepuff house, which we’re sure makes it all the more special for them.

In case you missed the Pottermore House Cup award ceremony, you can find it below.

As a reward for winning the House Cup, members of Hufflepuff house will receive 24 hours early access to the first instalment of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Hufflepuffs will receive a Owl Notification to let them know when the early access begins.

We know that Hufflepuff house worked hard to win, but for the first time we’re bringing you some insights about what else members of the four houses got up to on between this House Cup Championship and the last.

The Pottermore team would like to congratulate all Hufflepuff members on this well deserved victory, and commiserate Ravenclaw, Gryffindor and Slytherin. Now that the fourth Pottermore House Cup has been awarded, it's time to turn your attention to the next Pottermore House Cup and help your house achieve victory by winning duels and correctly brewing potions.
