We use 'euro' as a perfix for 'european'
We say Eurocup, or 'coupe de l'Euro'.
Eurodéputés, Eurosong festival. etc.
Euroquizz is perfect. Maybe without a space.

You may do that but we don't. Europa cup, Eurovisie/Eurovision song festival.

The currency has a small e.

No idea what the nickname of Antwerpen Centraal is.

Yes what is the local nickname of Antwerp Central Station?

Maybe not a fair question -that's why it was #11 - some Antwerp denizen here told me that - "The Railway Cathedral"- justly so -one of Europe's grandest train sheds- worth a good look over inside and out even if not taking trains.
