Could you accept Milan for AC Milan and Lyon for Olympique Lyonnais? And also I was trying Dinamo Kiev, Dynamo Kiev, Dinamo Kiyv and I couldn't get it so I gave up. Could you add type ins like that as well?

They will work now
Level 52

I wrote Benfica and Porto - and it accepted them, but they didn't appear anywhere?
Level 95
Oct 16, 2016
Sorry, for some reason, I added that match in later, and for some reason, they didn't save in the final edition of the quiz, but were still considered answers, that has been fixed

Can you change the name Kaiser City to Kaizer City?

The spelling with z is correct.

Level 70
Apr 23, 2021
Think just New York City and America should work for New York City FC and Club America respectively
Level 71

Revierderby would be a better fit for Germany (Dortmund-Schalke). Good choices otherwise, lots of variety
Level 78

Revierderby is surely more of a classic than the so-called "Klassiker" but the latter is more internationally known so I guess its inclusion makes some sense.
Level 67

Even though you left out El Gran Derbi, Flu-Fla and the Revierderby, this is a really good quiz. Thanks.
Level 62
Jul 6, 2021
Aye, good one. The Edinburgh derby, Hearts v Hibs, is another possibility.
Level 95
Jul 6, 2021
Thanks for the suggestions, I've expended the quiz to add most of these matches!
Level 78
Jul 6, 2021
A few suggestions for type-ins: Boca for Boca Juniors, America for Club America, Olympique Lyon/Marseille for Olympique de Lyon/Marseille, BVB for Borussia Dortmund, Spartak for Spartak Moscow. On the other hand, accepting 'LA' for LA Galaxy probably doesn't make much sense, especially given that the other team is also from LA. I also expected something from Istanbul but it's okay since the list doesn't claim to be comprehensive.
Level 95

Fixed, thanks for the suggestions!

Does'nt Derby County have a derby?
Level 50
Oct 12, 2021
Yes their main one is Nottingham Forest in which whenever the two teams play one another a trophy is contested called "The Brian Clough Trophy" due to Brian Clough managing both teams during his career.

Another is Leicester City, in which both rivalries with Forest and Leicester are dubbed the "East Midlands Derby". They also share a 'friendly' rivalry with Burton Albion due to both teams having shared fanbases as well as Nigel Clough (the son of Brian) being the manager of both teams :)

Leeds are another rival of Derby but is considered lesser known than the other rivalries but did get worse in 2019 when the spygate accusations and trials were held against Leeds. Stoke and Aston Villa are similar notations to Leeds just without all the spying malarkey

Good quiz. How about the Old Farm Derby?
Level 65

Well done, Great work. Thanks
Level 19

Great quiz!

Somel suggestions:

Derby Rhone-Alpes: OL vs St. Etienne

North East Derby: Newcastle United vs Sunderland

Eternal Derby (Croatia): Hajduk Split vs Dinamo Zagreb

Prague Derby: Sparta Prague vs Slavia Prague

Eternal Derby (Serbia): Red Star vs Partizan

Level 64

Cool quiz. Suggested addition: "Le Classique", i.e. PSG vs Olympique de Marseille. (Granted, Marseille is already featured in this quiz, but their rivalry with PSG is generally considered more intense than the one with Lyon.)
Level 72
Apr 10, 2022
Recent events would suggest the one with Nice is a strong rivalry as well
Level 95
Apr 10, 2022
Thank you for your suggestions! I want to try to keep it to one derby per team. I think that I should probably split this up into several quizzes in order to include the any derby's of the more storied clubs.
Level 72
Apr 10, 2022
I'm going to second other people's suggestion and recommend the Belgrade derby. Also the Krakow derby (aka the Holy War) and the Tehran derby are worth including
Level 53

Nice quiz! Actually, in Germany the most prestigious derby is the "Revierderby" or "Ruhrderby" between Dortmund and Schalke. Of course Schalke is less important than Bayern, but I was expecting that one
Level 74
Feb 12, 2023
There are a lot of more relevant derbies than Dortmund vs Bayern in Germany, and if I see the words "Der Klassiker" I want to cry. But I understand that this is a quiz site, not a site for football fans.
Level 95
Feb 12, 2023
I have chosen that one due to Schalke's recent struggles in the Bundesliga. I understand the importance of the Rivierderby due to geographic proximity, but I am currently prioritizing the heavyweight clashes so to speak. I will likely need to make this a series in order to account for those.
Level 67
Feb 12, 2023
Some more for you to consider: The Prague Derby between Slavia and Sparta; the Eternal Derby(Croatia) between Dinamo Zagreb and Hajduk Split; the Derby du Nord between Lens and Lille; and the Basque Derby between Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad.
Level 95
Feb 12, 2023
Thanks for the suggestions. I think I am going to have to split this one up into a series of shorter quizzes.

How is it one derby per team when flamengo has two?

An oversight on my part :/
