Sixty-four wizards and witches entered the arena, and now, there are only two competitors remaining in the Harry Potter World Cup: Severus Snape, the longtime Potions master at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and Ron Weasley, the Gryffindor hero who soldiered on through countless adventures with best friend Harry.
