Biggest Ever A Question of West Yorkshire Sport Night

30th November 2014


Headingley Carnegie Stadium was the venue for BBC Radio Leeds' A Question of West Yorkshire Sport 2014 - Champions Special.

The quiz is the brain child of Gareth three years ago and this third addition of the annual event was the biggest so far in terms of venue and audience size. 150 free tickets being snapped up in under 10 hours!

The night saw BBC Radio Leeds pay tribute to the West Yorkshire athletes that became champions in 2014.

Quiz panellists included:

Yorkshire County Championship winning Captain Andrew Gale

Commonwealth Games Gold Medal winning Driver, City of Leeds Driver Rebecca Gallentree

Leeds Rhinos Challenge Cup victor Jamie Jones-Buchanan

Leeds' European, British & Commonwealth Featherweight Champion Boxer Josh Warrington.

Gareth said: "This was a truly great night for all involved, with a lovely mix of fun, banter and a battle of sporting wits. 

"We hold these annual events not just to provide a great night of entertainment for people; but it is a great chance for us to meet our wonderful listeners; and for them to meet us - put faces to names and us to tlak and get to know each other better.

"I really want to thank everyone for coming along to support the event and for our sporting stars for giving up their free time to take part. A special metion to Jake Katborg and Richard Biddulph, who organised and engineered the event respectively. 

"The Quiz has got bigger and better every year, so the next challenge is how we can top this in 2015."

*Hear A Question of West Yorkshire Sport 2014 - Champions special air for the first time on Thursday 4th December at 6pm on BBC Radio Leeds 92.4FM, 774AM, DAB & online at bbc.co.uk/leeds.
