* {{Crossover}}: The series crossed over with its more raucous comedy counterpart, ''Series/TheyThinkItsAllOver'', in 2002 and 2004 for Sport Relief. Sue Barker captained the ''Question of Sport'' team for both specials, accompanied by Ally [=McCoist=] and John Parrott in 2002 and by Ally again and Frankie Dettori in 2004. Rounds imported from ''A Question of Sport'' for both specials included the Picture Board, "What Happened Next?", and the One-Minute Round.

Follows the format you'd expect of panel shows, with a host, two teams (consisting of two guests and a captain) and various quiz rounds.

!!!Rounds
The rounds generally played are:
* '''Picture Board''' - Contestants pick a square from a numbered grid which will correspond to a photo of an obscured sports personality, of whom they have to guess the identity.
* '''What Happened Next?''' - Sporting footage is played and contestants will have to figure out what [[HilarityEnsues hilarity ensued]].
* '''Mystery Guest''' - A montage is shown of a sports star dressed in disguise, who has to be identified. This round can be quite funny, as when [[=Ally McCoist=]] failed to recognise his own boss.
* '''Observation''' - A montage of sporting action, followed by detail-based questions ("How many football players were seen wearing yellow shorts?").
* '''Home Or Away''' - Standard quiz questions. Contestants can choose "Home" questions, which are easier (usually about their own sports) but worth less, or "Away" questions, which are harder but worth more.
* '''Captain's Challenge''' - A newer round, where team captains engage in some sort of wacky challenge.

* ThePointsMeanNothing: Averted, with competitive sportsmen as panellists. Less of a thing as the show has got more comedic in recent years, but the Bill Beaumont / Ian Botham era was ''very'' competitive.
