A Question Of Sport announces all-new live tour

Sue Barker, Matt Dawson, Phil Tufnell and special guests will celebrate the show's 50th anniversary.

Celebrating 50 years on the BBC, A Question Of Sport will tour across the UK in April and May 2020 with an all-new live show.

Host Sue Barker will be joined by team captains Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell, as well as big names from across the world of sport.

A Question Of Sport Live will kick off in Glasgow on 17 April 2020, and run through Liverpool, Birmingham, Newcastle, Nottingham, Manchester, Sheffield, London, Plymouth and Southampton.

A Question of Sport launched on the BBC in January 1970, and has now broadcast more than 1,000 episodes welcoming over 2,000 of the most iconic names in British and international sport.

“2020 is a landmark year for A Question of Sport,” says host Sue Barker. “It’s the show’s 50th anniversary and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this Golden Anniversary than to take the show around the country. We had such a brilliant time on the last tour so I can’t wait to do it again!”

The live shows will follow the same format as the TV programme, including many of the rounds and challenges fans will recognise and love. Audience members will have the chance to actively get involved, asking questions to the teams and getting directly involved in some of the challenges.

It marks the first time A Question Of Sport has hit the road in nine years.

“The live shows are something really special,” says team captain Phil Tufnell. “It’s a thrill to be able to take A Question of Sport from people’s living rooms into arenas and theatres across the UK. The interaction with the crowd is brilliant and it’s always a really exciting, hilarious and fun night out.”

“The live shows are different each night and everyone involved, whether they are on stage or in audience, has an absolute ball,” Matt Dawson adds. “We all love it and can’t wait to get started!”
