This Monday, MTV will launch the "Harry Potter World Cup," where you can vote for your favorite character to win each prospective round. James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) present the "Harry Potter World Cup" in a video you can see here or below.

The official information and schedule for the World Cup is as follows:

As announced by James and Oliver Phelps, the real-life counterparts of the prank-happy Weasley Twins, the Harry Potter World Cup officially launches with first round voting opening on June 20. From there, it'll be round after round of single elimination duels between your favorite wizards and the villains you love to hate, and you'll be there every step of the way voting on which competitor deserves the grand title. The two finalists will be revealed on Monday, July 11, kicking off an intense final duel that'll play out just days before the theatrical release of "Deathly Hallows Part 2" — and the winning wizard will be revealed during MTV News' livestream coverage of the film's red carpet premiere in New York City.
So, what are you waiting for? Get to know the contestants by studying the official bracket, start spreading the word on Twitter using the official #mtvpottercup hashtag, and get those wands at the ready — only one wizard can be named the champion, and it's all up to you.
The Harry Potter World Cup Tournament Voting Schedule is as follows:
Round 1 – Monday, June 20th through Sunday, June 26th
Round 2 – Monday, June 27th through Thursday, June 30th at Midnight
Sweet 16 – Friday, July 1st through Tuesday, July 5th at Midnight
Elite 8 – Wednesday, July 6th through Thursday, July 7th at Midnight
Final 4 – Friday, July 8th through Sunday, July 10th at Midnight
Championship Round – Final 2 announced Monday, July 11th. Voting will continue up until the New York City premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2."

I already cast my vote for this week’s duels. This thing is pretty awesome and funny… some duels are amongs family members such as Percy and Mr. Weasley… I bet Mr. W, wins that one.
