Quiz Liverpool

Home of the Liverpool Quiz League

Welcome to the website of the Liverpool Quiz League, part of the Merseyside Quiz Leagues, the world's longest running independent quiz league organisation.

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

In the 2019/20 season there were 31 teams in the LQL and over 100 teams competing in the MQL. 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.

In line with the MQL decision, the League was suspended in March 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.  Some Liverpool teams took part in the MQLOnline quiz league.  The League recommenced face to face quizzing in October 2021 with 27 teams playing in 3 divisions.

Semi Finals will be played on Monday 30th May 2022, at Aigburth People’s Hall, L17 0DG.

Doors open at 7.30

The draw will take place at 7.50pm so that we can get a prompt 8pm start.

Liverpool Mimir Heats

I would like to thank everyone who participated in the first round and semi-finals of the LQL Mimir competition at Aigburth People's Hall on Wednesday.

As usual, the event was held in the true spirit of the Quiz League, competitive but friendly, and our sincere thanks go to Paul Davitt and his team for once again organising such a successful and enjoyable event.

We now wish good luck to all of the LQL players who go forward to the Merseyside Quiz League Mimir competition starting next Wednesday.

Best wishes, Danny.

Website Problems - An Apology

I would like to apologise for the website being down for such a long time.  The hosting provider was upgrading their systems and it did not go as planned!  I have since migrated it to a new provider and hopefully things will get back to normal.

Thanks for your patience

Frank McFarlane

It is with great sadness that we must inform you that MQL Chairman, Frank McFarlane, passed away on Saturday 12 February at the Royal Hospital in Liverpool.  As you may have known, he was taken seriously ill just before Christmas and in spite of fighting hard, was unable to overcome the complications that arose from the emergency surgery.

Frank played for the Centre Club, Old Swan Conservatives and Leyfield Crown and never let his blindness prevent him from taking a full active part in team quizzing.  He was a Divisional Secretary in the LQL for over 20 years and organised the President's Shield competition for many of those.  At nearly 16 years Frank was the longest serving Chairman of the MQL and we will miss his calm and wise leadership.

We offer our sincere condolences to his wife Julia and the rest of the family and also to Karen and the team at Leyfield Crown.
