About UK Quiz Bowl

UK Quiz Bowl was set up in 2018 as the official governing body of the fast-growing game of Quiz Bowl in the UK. Quiz Bowl has been around for a number of years in this country and has been increasing its popularity, partly as a result of the success of people who play Quiz Bowl on the TV show "University Challenge" which was first put on the screen in 1962. Once launched, it has attracted a lot of attention, and many of the competitors have achieved success in their future career.

In 2020, UKQB and Asdan China have reached a strategic cooperation in order to jointly promote Quiz Bowl in China. And the most experienced team in the UK Quiz Bowl will operate regional and national competitions with Asdan China.
