2015 League Revamp

After 6 years of league play and a single-elimination playoff tournament it’s time to shake things up a bit. We locked our R&D department in a room for 19 minutes with no water or coffee or beer...
and this is what they came up with:

The Quizzo Cup Finals will now feature 14 teams!
You will have three different chances to secure your spot in the finals.

1st Chance - The regular season scoring will remain the same and the top four teams will secure an automatic berth in The Quizzo Cup Finals and also some cold, hard cash. Besides the top four teams the next 32 teams will also qualify for the Quizzo Cup Playoffs.

2nd Chance - The first week of the playoffs will feature a single match at a playoff venue close to you. Your venue will be determined by your home bar. The winner of each game instantly advances to The Quizzo Cup Finals and also wins cash based on the number of playoff teams inside that bar.

3rd Chance - The final two spots will be determined on Wild Card Weekend. Every eliminated playoff team will be invited back to choose from one of two bars to play at. The highest scoring league team at each of those two bars will advance to The Quizzo Cup Finals.

The Quizzo Cup Finals will feature an extra challenging game of Quizzo along with additional prize opportunities from our sponsors. We’ll be giving away cash, gift cards, random prizes, tickets to events, and beer. Lots of beer. The winner of The Quizzo Cup Finals will drive away with $1000.00 in warm, flaccid cash. The winners will also have their names forever engraved on the holy grail of trivia.

Register for the new and improved league by clicking on the “E-Register” tab on the Leagues page.

The league fee will continue to be just $3 per team per game and the regular season scoring system will remain the same. All of your league fees will go directly to the prize pool to be divided up at season’s end.

This new and improved league will require less travel, less playoff matches, more prizes, and a greater chance for everyone to compete in The Quizzo Cup Finals.

Good luck and have fun with it! Any complaints can be directed at

PLAYOFF RULES AND ELIGIBILITY

  • The top 36 teams will qualify for the playoffs. The top 4 regular season teams will earn an AUTOMATIC ENTRY into The Quizzo Cup Finals. In the event of a tie the team with the most “natural points” (excluding bonus points) will earn the bid into the playoffs.
  • Teams will be assigned a regional playoff venue and date based on their home bar. The league team that posts the highest score at that regional playoff match will earn a spot in the finals.
  • The remaining spots will be filled on Wild Card Weekend. Teams that show up at any designated Wild Card Bar and post the highest score will be the last entrants into The Quizzo Cup Finals.
  • The team captain MUST BE PRESENT at all playoff matches. You may file for an exception to this rule by emailing leagues@quizzousa.com  – Exceptions will only be made to this rule if the captain is sending another REGULAR PLAYER (verifiable by Quizmasters) in his / her place.
  • Team size is limited to 8 players during the Quizzo Cup Playoffs. Players are allowed to arrive late but may not enter the game until the current round is completed. NOTE: If you have additional team members on location but sitting apart from your team, you are taking a BIG risk. IF THE OTHER TEAMS COMPLAIN YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. 
  • Your team MAY NOT use a player from another team, whether in the league or not (verifiable by Quizmasters).  
  • If your team has a cell phone out during a round you will be penalized 5 pts without warning. Any team caught cheating will be removed from the playoffs.

The History of The Quizzo Cup

Before there were smart phones, before there were Snuggies, and before there was The Shake Weight … there was The Quizzo Cup. Making its debut in 2009, The Quizzo Cup marked the end of a series of anti-climactic regular seasons and the beginning of a unique era in pub trivia. Since a little team called Boatweiser first hoisted it in the air and drank PBR out of it on September 16th, 2009, The Quizzo Cup has become the most sought after championship for beer drinking thinkers this side of the Detroit River. Some play for the money, some for the fame, but most play Quizzo for The Cup and the right to have their name forever ingrained on the coveted trophy.

Winners of The Cup are free to do whatever they want with it for 10 weeks. Some cherish it, some drink from it, some travel with it, some defile it, and some treat it like family. The fact is that when your name is on The Cup, you can bring it to any Quizzo location and get it filled with free beer on behalf of the Quizmaster. So do with it what you will, for if you are in possession of The Cup, then you have earned that right. Kim Jong-IL’s name is on The Cup. Is yours?
