Jack Worsley is our FOCAL CHAMPION for 2016!

Want to be our FOCAL champion for 2017? Our next events are in LINCOLN on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th January and BRISTOL on Saturday 18th February. SIGN UP NOW!

Channel 4’s iconic gameshow Countdown is in its 34th year, and it’s won legions of fans from all ages and backgrounds. Now you can join in the fun at any of 12 unofficial tournaments in the UK and Ireland in 2016!

From Glasgow to Bristol, and King’s Lynn to Dublin, there’s always a FOCAL tournament nearby.

Bring along your friends and family to meet and play former and future Countdown champions and fans of the show – the standard can be high, but the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Just read these attendees’ experiences of FOCAL – you’ll make friends before you know it!  And if the tournament doesn’t go so well in the day, there’s usually a tasty meal or a pub trip afterwards to look forward to.


How does FOCAL work?

12 events are being held throughout this year, independently run by anagram-loving organisers in their local area.

Earn points throughout the year based on how many events you attend and how well you do at them, and the top 8 in the standings will receive free entry into our FOCAL grand finals tournament, held in Birmingham in December! This will run alongside a regular tournament, so that everyone can enjoy what promises to be a high standard finale.

Is FOCAL endorsed by Countdown?

No – it’s run by a band of hardy volunteers, and is completely unofficial, not-for-profit and not televised. No copyright infringement is intended.
