NEWS 8th OptaJoe Quiz Round-Up & Questions

The 8th OptaJoe Quiz took place yesterday evening (8th November) at Under the Bridge, Stamford Bridge with a packed house of 150 contestants from just under 30 teams taking part.

Teams for this year’s record turnout included past champions BT Sports Stats, Sky Sports Stats and ESPN as well as debutants BBC and Penguin Random House.

In a hotly contested battle the Sky Sports Stats Team ran out eventual winners, regaining their crown after two years of heartache, exacting revenge on their BT counterparts. Sky Sports Stats team finished on 130 points, a quiz record 8 points ahead of their nearest challengers. 

Now a well-established evening in the football trivia calendar, a thank you must go to all who took part and to those who got involved on Twitter.

The full questions and answers are available to download here (see right-handside) complete with a link to the video rounds and you can read the live blog from the event below and the full list of teams and their scores is at the bottom.
