What kind of questions do you really need? About players, about rules, about what exactly?

If you can use everything, than it's alway simple to ask questions about some players age of birth, age, etc...

Also about stadiums.
EX: What year was opened Giuseppe Meazza" - Answer is 1926. Or you can ask about the capacity.

About other sprts, you can ask, errrr, tennis.
EX: How high is the net at its center? - 36 inches.
Here, this is a quiz, you can find questions and answers here: http://tennis.about.com/od/faqandreference/l/aarulesquiz.htm

Here is quiz for NBA: http://library.thinkquest.org/J002516F/quiz.htm


I hope I was from help to you. Later, I will find something more, and I will post it.
