We are FOCAL — the unofficial Countdown tournament circuit.
Join us at one of our events across the UK and Ireland in 2019!

Whether you’re a viewer of Channel 4’s Countdown, a board game enthusiast, or just curious to try something new, you’ll meet new friends and learn new words at our fun and welcoming events.

There are no membership fees — you can come to as many events as you want, whenever you want. Details for every event are published on separate pages (see the menu bar at the top), and there’s usually a pub trip or group meal to look forward to afterwards.

Want to come along? Our next events are:

Saturday 7th September – Dublin
Saturday 21st September – Liverpool – new event!
Saturday 12th October – Blackpool
Saturday 2nd November – Braintree, Essexnew event!
Saturday 23rd November –
Wolverhampton
 – Molineux Open & 2019 Finals.

Details for how to sign up are set out on each page – alternatively, email us: focalcountdown@gmail.com. And if you want an idea of what these events look like, you can read up on reports, stats and other bits on our blog!


How does FOCAL work?

Everyone who plays at one of our events scores FOCAL Points — the better you do, and the more people that attend, the more points you get. At the end of the year, the eight highest scorers are invited back for the Finals! For more details, head to our FAQs page.

All of our events run at weekends, mostly on Saturdays, but each one offers something different — such as a Pointless-style quiz, a fun magazine, or a darts competition — and we pride ourselves on bringing a wide range of formats and ideas under one banner.

We have 13 events planned for 2019 and are already planning our 2020 circuit.
For details, head to the Upcoming Events menu and take a look through the ones you’re interested in!

Is FOCAL endorsed by Countdown?

No — it’s run by a band of hardy volunteers, led by a chair and a treasurer who pull together our accounts. It is completely unofficial, not televised and not-for-profit. No copyright infringement is intended.
