Started difficultly and got easier - couple of guesses in there but very confident. Like it though, mixed bag. One of the questions is sort of wrong though I thought?

Yeah, just Google'd it (after the quiz of course) to find that I've got that question wrong. The quiz is wrong though, as it's called something different now due to sponsorship reasons. 

No excuse for getting it wrong :P I knew what it was called then and now #geekin

I'm actually really pissed off. I went ''A play there, B play there, C play there - must be D then!''. 

I actually know where all of them play so if I'd just taken a second longer I'd have got it right xD.

 

 

xD Yeah that's what I thought - schoolboy

No idea on the Spanish Stadium. Had a toss up of two answers on Question 2. Went with my gut purely because I think I've heard it before. Could be wrong though.

Not as bad as I expected. As a kid I always liked these stats about biggest stadiums and all that, so that came in handy a few times. The Premier League-related questions were, as always, a gamble.

Yours came up weird - it said you had two our of ten but I checked your answers and there was a couple wrong, a few skipped and the last four correct. I thought you'd just skipped the ones that had no answer next to them - I don't know what's gone wrong there. :$

A couple of those were guesses, the Eibar one threw me and then with the maximum capacities I was stuck between the Azteca and the May Day in Pyongyang... I thought the Azteca sat around 110,000 unless it's been reduced recently but I'm glad I didn't go for it now.
