Soccer Club Geography Quiz

I put together this tricky quiz to test your knowledge of world club locations. It consists of four short multiple choice questions and only takes about a minute to complete. This is the first Best Eleven quiz and I'm using it to gauge the interest in this type of post. I can create a quiz about any soccer subject that comes to mind. Good idea? Terrible idea? Please let me know if there is interest by taking the quiz or leaving a quick comment.

3/23@1:10PM - This is proving to be a tricky quiz. So far "ram" from Barcelona has the best score with 2 out of 4 right in 1 min 11 sec. I'm not sure why but it seems to work for some people and not others.

3/23@8:30PM - Top score so far is 50% in 39 seconds by Chalky from the UK

3/23@11:30PM - Last update for today, Jacob from South Carolina had the best score, 3 out of 4 in 43 seconds. Nice one Jacob.

  2. Interesting, I tried it on three different computers and it worked. Nothing can ever be easy....I'll have to look into it. Thanks ü75.

  3. Very good idea ! Please keep blogging, you are my favorite football blog.

  4. I'm not sure the answers are correct, especially the northern one.

  5. Some of them do SEEM wrong, but I'm pretty sure they are all correct, I used the geographic coordinates system. I made the post a while ago but I just checked the northernmost answer and it appears to be correct.

    Glasgow - 55°51′28.8″N
