TWITTER FOOTBALL QUIZ: New quiz format explained

FOOTBALL – Starting Monday, 10 September, we will reintroduce our Daily Quiz at our main Twitter account @InfostradaLive, which will feature a new question every day at 14:00 CET. The answer to that question will be published every day at 15:00 CET at this website. 

Rules and scoring

The first five to submit the correct answer by replying to our quiz question on Twitter (@InfostradaLive) will accumulate points for the weekly standings: 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 point(s). The five answers have something in common: the association for which bonus points can be accumulated. The faster you guess the association correctly, the more bonus points you receive. The player to score most points over the course of the week is our weekly winner. Should two players finish on equal points, the winner is the player who has submitted the fastest association answer. Below we have displayed an example so you will know what to expect.

September trial period, October official start

We will publish three trial rounds in September so that you can get accustomed to the game. From Monday, 1 October, we will be officially keeping score.
