    • As mentioned: the quiz is at 9pm on the 29th of December. So you won’t be able to do it before that. You’ll receive an e-mail the latest half an hour before the quiz starts with the details. Will see you tonight.

    • Everyone who registered before today got a confirmation e-mail. Today everyone, including who registered today, will receive an e-mail with all details half an hour before the quiz the latest. You can always go to tonight and follow the live stream there.


    • You get Laws of the Game Quizzes later on in January on a weekly basis again. So that hopefully fulfils your wishes.

    • Haha. Quite early for you guys then. Will notice Sat if you could make it. Kudos for you if you set the alarm for it!

    25. (only 12% got this correct in the original quiz). A defender stops a promising attack. Before you start the disciplinary sanction procedure, the attacker takes the free kick quickly and creates a clear goal-scoring opportunity for his team-mate. What do you decide?

    Allow play to continue and don’t show the defender a yellow card
