The Football Number Plate Quiz

September, 14 2023 | Peter Jepson

Do you know your foxes from your owls and rams? Find out with our football number plate quiz.


The Football Number Plate Quiz

September is here and although the players have barely arrived home from their Summer siesta, the football season has arrived with all the stealth and surprise of an Iniesta through ball.

A quiz for football loving number plate enthusiasts

We take lots of calls from fans wanting to personalise their number plates to the side they support, and we’re always amazed by their inventiveness and willingness to go the extra digit for their team.

So, why not grab a cup of oxo and a wagon wheel and try our footy quiz?

Let’s begin!

The following use the last three letters on a number plate to celebrate a football team. This could be a name, nickname, or signature song. For instance, WHU = West Ham United.


Take a deep breath and away we go but don’t forget the honour of your team is at stake. So, no pressure!
