Ayr United Football Academy, in conjunction with Aberdeen Ayr United Supporters Club, are delighted to announce a quiz night in tribute to the legend that is Ally Macleod. 

This will take place in the Mercure Hotel, Ayr on Friday 28th September. All proceeds raised will go to the Academy to help fund its ‘Talented Young Footballers’ and ‘Football for Life’ programmes.

Since 2005 the Aberdeen AUSC have run a hugely successful Annual Quiz night in Aberdeen in tribute to Ally, with all proceeds split between the Academy and Alzheimer’s Scotland. In the 14 years to date, the event has raised a staggering £124,000. 

Dave Smith from Aberdeen AUSC commented “We love putting on this event every year and, in this year, the 40th Anniversary of the Argentina World Cup campaign, it seemed appropriate to work with the Academy to bring the quiz to Ayr for all Ayr United fans and the Ayrshire Community to enjoy.” 

Teams of 4 will be quizzed across broad range of footballing topics with questions, pictures, and video rounds. Questions in each round will become progressively more difficult with something for everyone. We can promise even the most diehard football fan a challenging evening!’ 

Davie White, Head of AUFA said “We are thrilled to be staging the quiz and working with the Aberdeen guys. We will be doing everything to make this a fantastic night which will hopefully become part of our annual calendar. Ally’s contribution to the Club and indeed Scottish football in general was breath-taking, one of the game’s greatest ever characters and we are delighted to have the opportunity to stage this event.” 

Entry costs £80 per team of 4 with a half time snack provided.
