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 2011/12 season there were approximately 150 teams competing. Teams compete 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.
