HUST Sports Quiz Nights – Enter NOW

Do you know your sport?

Throughout 2017 HUST will be out-and-about across the county as we endeavour to seek out the best Sport & General Knowledge QUIZ TEAM in the area.

So why not get together and raise a team, as you will not only have a chance to win the £100 top prize, and the ‘Adam Stansfield Trophy’, but you will be helping to raise funds for HUST and its community projects, United in the Community and the Adam Stansfield Foundation.

The First Round will be held at The Richmond Club, Edgar Street, Hereford on Wednesday, 15th February with an 8pm start. We welcome Hereford fans teams, but we hope to see quiz teams representing other sides within the Herefordshire Football Association, and from across the Herefordshire sporting scene. Maybe your cricket team, rugby team, or local pub quiz side could put a team together? Teams can consist of up to 4 players, and it will cost only £2 per person to enter.

Jamie Griffiths from Hereford Football Club has been tasked with putting at least one ‘club’ team together, although he may hope to draw on former players Jamie Willets and Nathan Summers who excelled in the clubs own Wembley Quiz last year!

The winners of each round will win £25 in vouchers, and will go through to the ‘Final’ of the competition which will be held later in the year.

We are very grateful to Shaun Parkin from the Adam Stansfield Foundation for their support.

Speaking yesterday Shaun said, “We would be very pleased and honoured if you named the trophy after Adam. I will get in touch with both Exeter and Yeovil and see if they would be interested in entering a team.

“We are always looking for excuses to visit Hereford so again would be honoured to come up meet everybody and be involved in the prize giving.

“Thank you again for thinking of us and we look forward to meeting you”.

Future venues for the event are expected to include Kington, Ledbury, Leominster and Ross-on-Wye.

A raffle draw and 50/50 draw will also be held at each venue.

Should any publican wish to add their venue to the schedule of quiz heats – completely free of charge – please get in touch with us.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available, and should you be able to donate raffle draw prizes we would be delighted to hear from you via our new lotto and fundraising email address:
