Minecraft Championship 17 is just over a week away from commencing on 18 September 2021 at 8:00 pm BST.
The Minecraft Championships ("MCC") are an invite-only event held and created by Noxcrew. It features ten teams of four competitors that compete in eight different minigames chosen by the participants.
Minecraft Championship 17 has had audiences in active anticipation since the end of the previous month's tournament, Minecraft Championship 16.
On 18 August 2021, Noxcrew announced the creation of a special medal that would be presented to the first competitor to reach five total wins in the Minecraft Championships. Minecraft Championship 16 ended with an overwhelming victory from Team Pink Parrots (consisting of Dream, Seapeekay, BadBoyHalo, and F1NN5TER).
Clay "Dream" was a member of this winning team, and his victory brought the competitor up to four total wins. This would tie him with Liam "Hbomb94" Heneghan for four total victories in the Minecraft Championships.
Minecraft Championship 17 could very well be the tie-breaker for both these consistent competitors. Luckily, both competitors have been confirmed to be participating in the upcoming tournament.
In this article, we'll look at all the available information on Minecraft Championship 17.
