Ah, Quidditch. Who doesn’t love it?! Who doesn’t dream they could play it? Sporty Potterheads certainly do, and while we haven’t worked functional flying brooms yet… we have the LEGO 4737 Harry Potter Quidditch set instead. Let’s check it out.
LEGO 4737 Harry Potter Quidditch Match Set
Playing Quidditch, much like visiting Diagon Alley and studying at Hogwarts, are part of the Wizarding world experience. Most of us, just like Harry, wished we played it or at least watched it. This sport plays on flying brooms and has the just-right amount of excitement and danger to please even the most demanding sportsman.
It’s no wonder it’s so popular in the Wizarding world, and fortunately, LEGO brought it to us as well. The LEGO 4737 Harry Potter Quidditch Match set brings with it four hoops, five minifigures and a spectator/referee tower. It also includes a trophy, which is a nice addition to the LEGO Harry Potter theme.
This set is fairly small, with only 153 pieces, and has a pretty straightforward building. Nonetheless, it looks good, includes unique minifigures, and has a lot of playability for Harry Potter and Quidditch fans everywhere. It might even be fun to join the whole family and play a match with the minifigures!
What’s in the box?
- 153 pieces, including metallic gold pieces for the hoops
- 5 minifigures: Harry Potter, Oliver Wood, Draco Malfoy, Marcus Flint and Madam Hooch
- Spectator stands
- 5 brooms, a Quaffle, Bludgers, Golden Snitch, a chest, three goal posts, catapults and a trophy and trophy stand with flags for Slytherin and Gryffindor
How much does it cost?
This set is sadly retired and thus, prices may vary according to availability in your region.

LEGO Quidditch Match Set Review
This relatively small LEGO Quidditch set is a major improvement over the 2002 LEGO Quidditch Practice set. This one has more pieces, better-looking goal posts, and more minifigures.
This is a very easy build, and thus, perfect for children to build and play with themselves.
Pros & Cons
All minifigures are exclusive to this set, except Harry Potter who also appears in magnet form. Oliver Wood and Marcus Flint, unfortunately, do not have double faces, but the other three minifigures do. This is, in fact, the only set where these minifigures appear in any form.
Harry and Draco wear their Quidditch uniforms for this set in the 2010 redesign, which is more put together and darker than the previous versions. Madame Hooch also appears for the second time, but this minifigure is the only one with a flesh-toned face. The previous version had a LEGO yellow face.
The LEGO 4737 set is relatively small and simple, which adds a lot of playability, brings lots of Quidditch accessories, and unique minifigures worthy of any LEGO Harry Potter Quidditch collection!
