Available for years

First transmitted in 1966, Arsenal and Nottingham Forest compete in a light-hearted battle of wits with the help of their celebrity supporters.

This is the first episode of the quiz, which ran from 1966 to 1972. Two teams, made up of players from a football club and a celebrity supporter, play a football match in the form of a general knowledge quiz. Teams choose whether to take four easy questions, three medium questions, two hard questions or one tough question to score a goal. The opposition can opt to take a tackle question in order to block the run, but a wrong answer results in an own goal. Whoever has the most goals at the end of the show is the winner. Show less
