Irish Quiz League

Newsflash May 31st: IQL season 2 is now complete – congratulations to A Tribe Called Cheist, our new Irish Quiz League champions!

We plan to return in Autumn 2022 for season 3 – to stay in the loop for any announcements, email league (at) quizireland.ie and we’ll add you to our mailing list.

Launched in October 2021, the Irish Quiz League is a weekly online quiz tournament run by the Irish Quiz Organisation.

Season 1 was held between October and December 2021, with season 2 held during April and May 2022.

Below was the tournament structure for season 2:

  • The league consisted of 24 teams participating from across Ireland (and beyond)
  • The 24 teams were arranged into three divisions of 8 teams, with each team playing each other once during the season
  • The season ran for seven weeks between April 4th and May 31st 2022 (excluding April 18th and May 2nd due to those being Irish bank holidays)
  • Matches were held on Zoom every Monday, at a time of each team’s choosing
  • At the end of the season, division champions were decided entirely on league position (no need for playoffs or semi-finals this season)
  • There is a total prize fund of over €1,000 with cash prizes for the winner and runner-up in each division:
    • Div 1 champions: €300
    • Div 1 runners-up: €150
    • Div 2 champions: €200
    • Div 2 runners-up: €120
    • Div 3 champions: €150
    • Div 3 runners-up: €100
  • Promotion/relegation is in effect for top & bottom 2 teams in each division for the subsequent season later in 2022.
