When the country went into a nationwide lockdown at the end of March 2020, it left many people isolated, unable to leave their home.
Football, the one thing that brings us all together, was also suspended.
For many people, going down The Arsenal is their escape. Their chance to go out on a Saturday, have a few beers with their friends, to relax away from the stresses of real life. COVID19 took this away from us.
A few Arsenal fans decided to host a quiz night on the 2nd Friday of lockdown.
The hope was this would bring Arsenal fans together, taking everyone’s mind off the pandemic for 2 hours, and raise some money for NHS Charities Together.
Beers were had, music was played, and questions about The Arsenal were asked and answered. There was no winner. This was all about the taking part.
As soon as the quiz ended, the questions was asked. ‘Are you doing the same next Friday?’. There was no plan to, but the decision was made. New questions, new answers and a 2nd quiz the next Friday.
10 quizzes were held in total. Over 30,000 people joined in.
Halfway through the weeks, the conversation turned to “what next?” and the decision was made to organise the questions into a book to be released for Christmas – with profits to be donated to NHS Charities Together.
This is that book.
500 questions ranging from historical general knowledge, transfers, goal scorers and managers. Questions on the greatest moments in Arsenal history – 1971 Double, Anfield 89, 1998 Double, 2002 Double and the Invincibles of 2004, as well as the now famous “I also played for…” category.
Whether you test your knowledge against yourself, or use the book to host your own Arsenal Quiz Night over Christmas, this book will make a brilliant addition to your Arsenal collection.
Pre-sale is now live on on the She Wore Shop.
All profits from The Arsenal Quiz Book will be donated to NHS Charities Together.
