Merseyside Quiz Leagues

The World's Largest Independent Quiz Leagues

2021-22 Season

At the MQL Council Meeting on Sunday 18 July all Areas reported the responses of their teams to the question of resuming face to face (FTF) quizzing.  Just over 75% of all 104 teams asked were ready to restart FTF in the new season and their venues were confirmed.  This may increase to 86% after teams had had a period of trying out the experience.  After discussion it was agreed that we should go ahead and plan a complete season but starting slightly later in the week commencing 4 October.
As usual each Area will arrange their own league structure to best suit the length of the season and the number of teams.  It was expected that they would also plan a number of friendly matches in September in order to try out the arrangements that have been made in each of their venues.
It is accepted that we are still living in very uncertain times and League officials accept that these plans may need to be changed as the situation develops.  It is hoped to be able to give the final go ahead at a meeting scheduled for Sunday 19 September. 
The Minutes of the meeting containing further details are here.

2021-22 Season

Following HM Government's extension of restrictions, a further Council Meeting has been scheduled for Sunday 18 July to make plans for the 2021-22 season.  Teams have been asked about how their players and their venues feel about recommencing face to face quizzing and these views will be discussed at the meeting.
