Soccer Leagues as Hogwarts Houses

So, with lots of very serious matters going on (very important, might I add), I decided to take a break and do something fun. This took some time to think about, but I think I’ve gotten an accurate pick going on. Here is my pick for soccer leagues as Hogwarts houses.

Premier League

This one seemed like an obvious answer. Premier League appears to continually get the most publicity. Between that and the amount of talent that is bred in the UK, I figured Premier League would be Gryffindor.

There is a large competition pool that happens within the league. If you ask people to name soccer teams, most tend to know Premier League teams over any others.

Also, Premier League’s logo is literally a lion. How much closer could they get?

La Liga

So, this is where things started to get tricky. Premier League was an easy one to choose. For La Liga I think that they would most likely be Ravenclaw. This is a personal favorite of mine, as I am a Ravenclaw myself.

Although Premier League has many competitions and rivals, there is arguably one more important in La Liga. Of course, I am talking about the El Classico between Barcelona FC and Real Madrid C.F. This classic rivalry reminds me of how competitive Ravenclaws can be. Their fight for intelligence matches that of the competition in El Classico.

Bundesliga

I really wanted to make Bundesliga be Slytherin. Bundesliga competes with La Liga on how popular it is. But I think there are more characteristics that Bundesliga matches.

They seem to be slightly more physical and get more cards than La Liga. There is also a large portion of talent that is born through them. Think of all of the craziness being made through Timo Werner’s transfer rumors.

Many Slytherins have potential with how ambitious they are, however, they just have to stay away from the evil stereotype.

Serie A

So, this leaves us with Serie A to be Hufflepuff. They are a league that shouldn’t be forgotten, but they aren’t as talked about as the rest of them are.

They don’t play as aggressive either. Many players are kind and humble as long as they aren’t agitated. Which is why I think they’d be the best fitted popular league for Hufflepuff.

This was harder than I thought it was going to be, but I think I did a good job placing the soccer leagues as Hogwarts houses.
