Merseyside Quiz Leagues

The World's Largest Independent Quiz Leagues

The Merseyside Quiz Leagues, the home of team quizzing here on Merseyside were founded in 1959 and are the largest independent quiz leagues in the world.

In the 2018/19 season there will be over 100 teams competing in one of five Leagues. Teams will usually take part in their own local league, 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!

If you are interested in finding out a little more about team quizzing on Merseyside, why not drop into a venue and watch a game taking place.  During the September to March season most games are played on Monday or Tuesday nights starting at 8.45pm.  The tab 'Leagues' will allow you to select your local area from where you can find a team playing near you.  You will be guaranteed a warm welcome and if you wish, a chance to take part in a friendly game after the main match.  If you need any advice please contact us.
