Qualifying Starts: 09/17/2023
NOTE: TOCXXIII will NOT be at Joe's! This time around we're returning to where it all started, The Cubby Bear!

The top teams at our Chicagoland venues(specifically regular trivia- not themes or music) will earn spots for the upcoming T.O.C! Each teams' top 6 scores from the qualifying period will be combined and then compared with scores for other teams at the same venue. Be sure to bring your A game, as unlike past tournaments, there won't be any wildcards(we don't have the room)!

Note: The number of teams that qualify for each bar is determined by the average team count during the qualifying period

The Whaddayaknow? Tournament Of Champions is Chicago's PREMIERE Pub Trivia Event! The first one was held on June 25, 2011 at The Cubby Bear in Wrigleyville. Since then, we've been at Joe's Bar on Weed Street, that is until our return to The Cubby Bear on February 3, 2024!.

The event is held twice a year - Summer & Winter - and your team must qualify to participate. Qualifying tournaments are held at ALL Chicagoland W? locations (during the Spring and Fall before, last 10 weeks, with the top 6 scores from each team being summed for a tourney score (ie. if a team attends all 10 weeks, its low 4 scores will be dropped). The top 2-5 teams from each location punch a ticket to the big event!

The W? TOC is unlike ANY team trivia event - it's an afternoon of the most wonderful type of energy and fun with loved ones and a great community, complete with friendly competition for trivia supremacy! W? gifts are given to all participants for every month. You have to experience it for yourself - pick one of our spots and qualify for the big event. Email support@freepubtrivia.comwith any questions. We hope to see you there!
