It is with regret that MQL announce the cancellation of the 2020-21 Leagues season. This was a unanimous decision made at last week’s meeting of the MQL Council. It means that there will be no face to face quizzing in the Liverpool, Ormskirk, Southport & Formby, Warrington or Wirral Leagues. Any question sets and membership fees that may have been submitted will be carried over to the 2021-22 season, which we hope will begin as normal next Autumn. As you are aware, three online league competitions are currently being operated by Southport & Formby, Ormskirk and by MQL. If any teams or individuals would like to get involved with these, please contact your league secretary.
The President’s Trophy competition is being played online and it is hoped that the Merseyside Challenge Cup and possibly the Mimir Individual competitions may run in some form of online version in the Spring. The President’s Shield, Feeny Cup and Rendon Cup competitions will not take place.
We plan to hold a Finals and Presentation Evening in May to conclude all 2019-20 and any 2020-21events.
The decision to cancel was made very reluctantly after months of uncertainty. However we had reached the stage that even if circumstances may have allowed venues to open and host, there would be insufficient time to complete a league programme. We hope that all players and their families stay safe and look forward to meeting up again in September.
