For the season starting on January 1 2015 and ending December 31 2015, The AQA will use the US Quidditch Rulebook: Eighth Edition, as its rules of play. The only exception to this rulebook are the rules relating to off-pitch seeking. Australian official play retains off-pitch seeking. Because USQ Rulebook 8 has been updated to reflect different rules, the AQA will consider IQA Rulebook 7 sections relating to off-pitch seeking (particularly sections,, 7.6.3., and 8.3.3.) to supersede any conflicting information in Rulebook 8.
