Merseyside Quiz Leagues

The World's Largest Independent Quiz Leagues

The Merseyside Quiz Leagues, founded in 1959, are the largest independent quiz leagues in the world.

In the 2016/17 season there were over 100 teams competing. Teams take part in their own local leagues, so that travelling distances are kept to a minimum. There are, however, opportunities to enter Merseyside-wide competitions at either team or league representative levels - our equivalents of UEFA club competitions and International matches!

MQL AGM - Date Change 

The date set in 2016 for the 2017 Merseyside Quiz League AGM was Sunday 30 April.  This is of course the Sunday of the Bank Holiday weekend, so it has been decided to bring this forward by one week to Sunday 23 April.  Still at Old Swan Conservative Club, 73 Derby Lane, Liverpool L13 6QE at 8pm

Given this late change of date, the 28 day deadline for any written proposals to be received will still stand at the original date of 2 April.
