A Tight Finish to the Football Fan Quiz

Hi my name is Deano and I'm mad about soccer! Liverpool FC is my team. I'm the current captain of CRC United Football Team.

Read my blog about the recent Football Fan Quiz.

Here we are in the Breakout Room for the Football Fan Quiz. All the CRC went into one room.
Heading into the quiz, we knew it was going to be tough. St. Michael’s House had challenged the CRC to a Virtual Football Fan Quiz. Like ourselves, they too had done their homework and were in pretty good shape!

They’ve a weekly sports talk on Zoom so I knew they would be a good opposition. I tried making sure that all my own mates knew about the challenge. So I phoned them up and told them: “Get yourselves bleedin’ ready; we’ve a tough quiz coming up!”

So anyhow, the Zoom Quiz started with everyone saying hello to each other. They were loads of new faces that I hadn’t seen before. Some of the St Michael’s House crew had Manchester United virtual backgrounds which I taught was gas.

Lisa and Nuala from Dublin City Sports Inclusion then introduced the referees to us.

This question was very tricky and we had to come together as a group to pick the right answer. You weren't allowed to Google the answer.
CRC went into one Breakout Room and St. Michael’s House went into another one. Nuala asked the questions and Mitch was there acting like our assistant manager, giving us advise along the way. Oh my God, some of those questions were rock-hard. But I knew the answers to most of them so it didn’t matter too much.

My mates in the Killester Hub kept laughing their heads off. As the captain of CRC United, I’m very proud of everyone as we nearly won the quiz. I thought that it was going to end with a tie-breaker but the CRC got the last question wrong. I couldn’t believe it, but I’m a good sportsperson so the best team won on the day.

All I have to say now is, well done St Michael’s House in winning the first ever Football Fan Quiz.
