Here’s a great source of NFL and NBA team names …plus team and players’ names for baseball, hockey and soccer leagues too.
Make your own sports trivia and quiz questions!
I’ve found a website that has all the major American league team names and top 25 players in one handy location. It also has international soccer club team names.
Check out FansEdge.com.
I don’t think you’ll find anywhere else on the web with all the major hockey, soccer, MBL, NFL and NBA team names in such easy drop down lists.
It’s possible to pay for quiz questions and answers in an easy downloadable format.
However, if you want to do it yourself, here’s a few ideas on using team names for sports quiz questions. There are a lot of sports fanatics out there who really enjoy this type of quiz.
My website is global, so I’ve tried to provide universal ideas that will work with American NFL, MLB and NBA team names, and any other international team names lists of your choice.
The FansEdge website I referred to above has predominantly American league teams … if you want an easy source of team names and player lists for international football/soccer, take a look at WorldSoccerShop.com.
Examples here include:
If you enjoy testing your creativity when making your own quiz, you could also come up with a ‘team name origins’ quiz. For example, you could create clues to come up with quiz questions and answers like these:
These are great for printable quiz questions.
The idea here is to assemble a page of photos of teams and players. Quiz teams have to name the team, player or both.
You can make this a bit easier if you provide the answers on a separate sheet, and trivia teams just have to match the photo with the player/team.
A variation on this could be to buy an autographed photo ( FansEdge.com has some fabulous ones from as low as $25). Ask trivia teams to name the player, and answer as many factual questions as they can about that player.
At the end of the night, the team with the most right answers could win the framed photo as a prize.
Or if your trivia night is a fundraising event, you could auction off the photo or other memorabilia at the end of the evening.
Team names often lend themselves to anagrams and other word puzzles. Putting together this type of quiz question requires a little more creativity.
To give you the idea, here’s a few anagrams of NFL Team Names for you to un-jumble:
BULLS OFF BAIL – Buffalo Bills
BIG COACH EARS – Chicago Bears
BLOOD WAS SCALY
DIPLOMAS IN HIM
TENSE TENNIS SEAT
WEAKEST HAT SALES
ALL TAN TACO FANS
RAGGED CHASE IRONS
To make it fun, we haven’t provided all the answers! You get to solve the remaining anagrams by matching them with these NFL team names:
Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, San Diego Chargers, Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these suggestions for sports quiz questions using team names. I wish you every success with your quiz or trivia event!
