For questions generally relating to small, specific facts regarding a player, team, or game that are not common knowledge and can be answered with fact-based answers. Questions should also be tagged with the sport referenced.

Mark the questions with this tag if they are relating to small, specific facts regarding a player, team, or game that are not common knowledge.

The network consensus states that sports trivia should be allowed on the following conditions:

  • They allow for a factual answer (does not have to have a single answer, but it should be facts based)
  • They go beyond general reference. If you can get a great answer within a click or two of a Google search it probably isn't a great fit.

See "Should we allow sports trivia?" on meta for further information.

Questions should also be tagged with the sport referenced.
