Trivia: Guess the 92 English football mascots
So you think you know your clubs? Do you reckon you could recognise Arsenal’s famous mascot with just a glance? What about the one for Partick Thistle? If so, we’re bringing you a quiz that comes courtesy of Betfair Football betting, where we test your knowledge to see how well you know the mascots for your favourite clubs in the Football League.
With almost every club in the country having some sort of mascot, it can be difficult to keep track of what they look like let alone remember their names. With the players always taking centre stage at football matches, other people such as ball boys, fourth officials, and even mascots go unnoticed. For most match visitors, mascots are the last things that they keep an eye on.
However, there are a number of mascots that are very ‘unqiue’ and are almost impossible to ignore due to their appearance. One of the most unique mascots in the Premier League is Arsenal’s “Gunnersaurus Rex”. Gunnersaurus Rex is a green, friendly rendition of a Tyrannosaurus rex and has become of the most recognised mascots in the world. He’s even regularly used in the clubs marketing campaigns. Throughout the Football League pyramid there are many mascots like Gunnersaurus, all with unique names and designs.
As mentioned earlier there’s a lot of teams out there, and a lot of mascots to go with them. This means it can be difficult to keep track on which fuzzy suit goes with which club and it can be even harder to remember what the name is. Due to this, we’ve kept this quiz nice and simple by only asking you to guess the club and not the name of the mascot. How well do you think you’re going to do, are you going to smash it into the back of the net or are we looking at a red card here?
