Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - Wrong Date.
In Quidditch Through the Ages, it says that the first ever World Cup was in 1473, with a match being held every 4 years. Yet the World Cup in 1994 is number 422. There can't be 422 world cups in 521 years with a four-year gap in between. Calculated correctly, the World Cup that the Weasleys, Hermione, and Harry attend is actually the 131st, and it should have been held in 1993.

me, the reason we know it's 1994 is because Harry was born 7/31/80. He arrived at Hogwarts in 1991, and that means GoF is set in 1994. ultimate slip up finder, you are correct about the dates. I do believe JKR has talked about how she realized she messed this up, but I can't recall where I've read it. Nice catch!
