Minecraft Championship 17 is just around the corner, only a week away from commencing, leaving ample room to look back and review the history of the beloved Minecraft Championship.

The Minecraft Championship ("MCC") are an invite-only event held and created through the Noxcrew. It features ten teams of four competitors who compete in eight different minigames chosen by the participants.

Contrary to popular belief, these tournaments have been held for far longer than their recent boom in popularity suggests. The first championship was held on November 17, 2019. This would start the first season of tournaments until season one's finale on December 12, 2020.

The Minecraft Championship then took a five-month hiatus until finally returning for an official second season of tournaments on May 29, 2021.

The second season of championship is underway, with the next event commencing in the coming week, on September 18, 2021, at 8.00 pm BST.


Who has won the previous Minecraft Championship?

The Noxcrew & Smajor have held a total of eighteen championships, with no shortage of reigning teams taking home the crown at the end of the day.

What makes the tournaments so highly anticipated and enjoyable to watch is their equal playing field. There often isn't a clear projected winner when teams are announced, as they're evened out not to be too blatantly overpowered. All teams are challenged on the day of the tournament with the random minigame selection and coin-based point system that the championships run on.
