Fifth edition of OptaPaolo Quiz held in Milan

“Frigoriferi Milanesi” hosted the fifth edition of the #OptaPaoloQuiz on 11th October 2017. It was a record-breaking edition of the quiz, which saw 20 teams and over 80 participants battling for glory. In the end, it was Milan TV who went on to lift the trophy, following a closely fought head-to-head with reigning champions Gazzetta dello Sport.

The contest featured nine rounds of questions (including audio and video rounds), a section focused on the World Cup, and one on Francesco Totti, who retired from professional football in May.

As ever, the #OptaPaoloQuiz was overseen with great enthusiasm from the various teams within Perform Italia, who all contributed to our guests’ satisfaction and enjoyment of the event.

This edition of the #OptaPaoloQuiz was sponsored by Carlsberg, with whom Perform has just launched an innovative project based on Opta data; providing exclusive insights on Serie A to players of fantasy football.
