World Quizzing Championships 2020 & Brain of Dublin final

Saturday December 5th 2020 @ 11:30am 4:00pm


Like so many events this year, the 2020 World Quizzing Championships fell victim to COVID-19. Public health concerns meant the event could not take place on its traditional date, the first Saturday in June. Six months on, the event will finally be held on Saturday next, December 5th.

Unsurprisingly this year’s event will be a little different as it will be carried out online. The IQO is one of the organisations hosting an online heat for the event.

11.30 Zoom room opens
12.00 Paper 1
13.00 Break, with answers to Paper 1
13.30 Paper 2
14.30 Answers to Paper 2
15.00 ‘Brain of Dublin’ Grand Final (all are welcome to watch)
16.00 Announcement of winners for the Irish heat (overall and in categories)

If you would like to take part, the entrance fee is just €5, which you can pay at https://paypal.me/IrishQuiz before 11.30 on Saturday. (Please don’t tick the option for “paying for goods and services” so that we avoid being charged PayPal fees)

We will send the Zoom room details to the email address you’ve registered with PayPal.

If this timetable does not suit you, the International Quiz Association is running three sessions at 11:00, 15:00 and 19:00 – see bottom of https://quest.quizzing.com/enter/season/100016/quiz/100323 for details
