Are you missing the football during isolation and fancy putting your football wits against other likeminded quizzers online? With everything from Championship Manager to League 2 strugglers, the Premier League, Bundesliga and beyond, this is a quiz for real football lovers. We have written this and teamed up with quiz app ‘Speedquiz’ to make it a great interactive experience with no chance of cheating!
How it Works
We use the Speedquizzing Live app so it is played in real-time on phone or tablet. You will need to download this (make sure you get the LIVE version with the orange logo). Basically, you enter the quiz using a code, and then you use your phone/tablet as a keypad to enter your answers. The software creates a leaderboard which we will share after each round. There are 3 rounds, with 20 questions in each round. We will break after each so you can get yourself a beer. Or Two.
The quiz will be hosted and presented over Zoom, so you will likely need a laptop or desktop PC to play along. Once you have both bits of software, you can play every week! For this quiz, go to Zoom, join a meeting and then enter the meeting key. We will send you the meeting password via Facebook Messenger once you have signed up and paid your £2 entry fee (see below). When you join the Zoom meeting, we will tell you the code to join on Speedquiz…sounds complicated…but once we have done it the first time, you’ll love it!

All money will be received and sent via PayPal. This is our first time doing this, so the trust goes both ways! We mainly want people to have fun and join together for a great online footy quiz!
To note: PayPal charges us 36p for each payment…so some of the money just disappears, we will see if there’s a better way in future!
The rest of the money from each quiz we are investing in our website which we have created during lockdown; we want to create an amazing football-based site written by fans, for fans – with blogs, challenges, merchandise and more!
