Sky’s just published a new Android app it calls Sky Sports Pub Challenge, which is a football trivia quiz designed to be played live on match days. Not only that, but it’s also supposed to only work when you’re checked-in inside pubs and clubs that are screening Sky Sports matches live, making it a sort of drunken, rowdy, location-aware quiz machine.
Better still, there are cash prizes on offer for players who answer questions correctly and come up with the best predictions, with payouts for those who end up topping the monthly and end-of-season leaderboards.
Quite a clever idea, if you like football. And go to pubs. And have friends. Three strikes and I’m out, but if you’re popular and not agoraphobic, Sky Sports Pub Challenge is on Google Play here.
