Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. APOEL FC; Olympiakos Nicosia; AC Omonia

Answer: Cyprus

All of these teams have, historically, been part of the Cypriot First Division, a league of the top twelve teams in the island nation of Cyprus. Teams not making the cut shuffle down to the Second Division, the Third Division, and then the STOK Elite Division.

The Cyprus Football Association, who organize the teams across the island, was created in 1934 and has seen hundreds of teams join and become defunct. APOEL FC (or the Athletic Football Club of Greeks of Nicosia) was formed in Nicosia in 1924; Olympiakos Nicosia and AC Omonia, playing out of the same stadium, were formed in 1931 and 1948, respectively.
2. Zimbru Chisinau; FC Sheriff Tiraspol; FC Milsami Orhei

Answer: Moldova

The Divizia Nationala is the overseeing league for this one as it's the top tier of teams governed by the Moldovan Football Federation. The giveaway here might have been Zimbru Chisinau if only because Chisinau is the Moldavian capital city. Formed in 1947 it was, for most of the 1990s, the top team in the nation at a time when it split off from the Soviet Union (in 1992). Generally this division of football contains eight teams while lower divisions contain significantly more. Because of the size of the country, most of the teams are situated in Chisinau.
3. FCI Levadia; Parnu JK Vaprus; Paide Linnameeskond

Answer: Estonia

All of these have been part of the Meistriliiga, also known as the Premium Liiga of Estonia, and it's one of several divisions in their national system (followed by Esiliiga, Esiliiga B, II liiga, III liiga, and IV liiga) formed in 1992 (as it was yet another one of the nations that formed after the collapse of the Soviet Union).

The Meistriliiga is quite interesting since it allows amateurs to play with professionally-ranked teams provided they're able to score high enough to reach the echelon. FCI Levadia moved in 2004 to the nation's capital Tallinn (from Maardu) and continued to compete at this high rank for more than two decades, winning more than half a dozen Estonian Supercups over those years.
4. Naxxar Lions FC; Sliema Wanderers FC; Tarxien Rainbows FC

Answer: Malta

A little bit different from the other football clubs of Europe, eh? In Malta, a number of professional and amateur football clubs elaborate a bit on their traditional names in the same way that North American sports teams do with animals or mascots. Of the options here, all three have been part of the Maltese Premier League at some point of their runs with Sliema having had a fairly illustrious history.

The league has varied in size since its formation in 1909 but Malta played under a federation as far back as 1863.
5. FC Torpedo Kutaisi; FC Dila Gori; FC Samgurali Tsqaltubo

Answer: Georgia

Historically part of the Erovnuli Liga, the top tier of the Georgian Football Federation, these teams were all formed in the 1940s and have stood toe-to-toe with a handful of teams who all based themselves in the Georgian capital city of Tbilisi. All of these teams predate Georgian independence and, because of this, competed for the Soviet Cup along with other nations that would reform after 1992.

After this year, they would battle for the Georgian Cup.
6. Jeunesse d'Esch; F91 Dudelange; CS Fola Esch

Answer: Luxembourg

Luxembourg isn't a big country, so you might be surprised that it has a large enough amount of players and clubs to justify a Luxembourg National Division of fourteen teams (though originally twelve for most of its first century). Created in 1910, the league has, historically, been overtaken by appearances of Jeunesse Esch and F91 Dudelange, the former of which appeared in more than forty Luxembourg Cup finals in that first century-or-so of games (winning twenty-eight of them).
7. Stjarnan; FH; Fylkir

Answer: Iceland

The top league in Iceland is known as the the Urvalsdeild Karla, and since its creation in 1912 it's typically contained a dozen teams vying for the main prizes in Icelandic football. Though most clubs are situated around the capital city of Reykjavik (as does the majority of the country's population), players are divided out between a handful of stadiums and there's a consistent amount of turnover in the championship. FH might be a bit of a trickier one to identify, but it's the commonly-used abbreviation of Fimleikafelag Hafnarfjardar. Yup -- FH is easier.
8. FK Ventspils; Skonto FC; FK Tukums 2000

Answer: Latvia

One of the top sports in Latvia, football officially became an organized event in the country in 1921 when the then-Latvian Football Union was formed. The Soviet Union exercised its grip on Latvia during the early days of World War II and dissolved the association, but they reconvened upon gaining independence in 1990. During the years between, a Soviet Latvian organization filled the space.

The teams provided for this question have all been clubs featured in Virsliga, the highest level of play in the national league system. FK Ventspils went defunct in 2021 while Skonto FC dissolved after bankruptcy in 2016.
9. Borussia Dortmund; 1. FC Köln; Bayer 04 Leverkusen

Answer: Germany

The primary football league at the top of the German system is Bundesliga and, historically, it's contained sixteen to twenty of the nation's top teams. Amongst the roster over the years are names that might be recognizable outside of the football world; Bayern Munich, for instance, has been considered one of the top football clubs on the continent having won multiple championships and multiple UEFA Champions League titles.
10. FC Krasnodar; Spartak Vladikavkaz; FC Ufa

Answer: Russia

All of these are teams from the Russian Premier League though there are a number of Russian teams that are significantly older than its formation in 1992. Spartak Vladikavkaz, for instance, was a carry-over from the country's Soviet League (though it was dissolved in 2020). On the other side of things, however, what was the Soviet region lost a significant number of teams due to countries gaining their independence.
