European Quizzing Championships

The original international quiz tournament, the European Quizzing Championships are now the largest and most prestigious annual single-site quiz in the World. Held over a weekend in November in a major European city, the Championships comprise five main competitions together with a number of smaller quizzes and lots of informal and social quizzes.

The weekend opens on Friday evening with the qualifying rounds of the Nations Cup. The parallel Aspirational Cup allows everyone to face the challenge of the toughest team quiz around, with many countries fielding B and C teams in the event.

On Saturday, the Individual champion is crowned, with a written quiz followed by a special final round where the continent’s top ten quizzers go head-to-head, the destiny of the title being decided question-by-question. Saturday evening is the world’s hardest pub quiz, as Club Teams of all nations compete for the World Championship in their field.

Sunday opens with the Pairs championship, a chance for quizzers from different nations to combine their talents or for top pairs from one nation to take on the rest of the world. And the weekend finishes with the final knockout matches in the Nations Cup, representing the pinnacle of international team quizzing.

With plenty of opportunities for social quizzing or seeing the sights, it’s a great all-round event that welcomes all-comers. You can find full details at;
