Green and white banners hung from the Great Hall on pottermore.com as Slytherin House was named champion of the seventh Pottermore House Cup competition on Friday.
The snakes’ first place standing is a leap from the previous competition, where they placed fourth. Slytherin succeeds Ravenclaw House, which won the previous two House Cups.
The final standings:
1st Place: Slytherin – 52,652,850 points
2nd Place: Hufflepuff – 50,109,456 points
3rd Place: Ravenclaw – 49,775,819 points
4th Place: Gryffindor – 49,335,378 points
In honor of Slytherin winning the Cup, Pottermore promoted a poster they created called, “Famous Slytherins Through the Ages,” for all Houses to enjoy; you can view it here. Also in the coming weeks, Pottermore is expected to release Moments from the final Harry Potter book, Deathly Hallows. Stay tuned!
Now, back to brewing and dueling! Good luck to all houses in the eighth House Cup competition…
