Spring’s greatest tournament kicks off March 5.
It is considered the second most prominent tournament in the NJPW, after the G1 Climax, which follows a round-robin format. Since 2006, the winner, like with the G1 Climax, receives a shot at the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.
However, unlike with the G1 Climax, the reigning IWGP Heavyweight Champion does not participate in the tournament (in the case of the G1 Climax, he would, in case of win, get to pick the next challenger for his title).
The opening game will be held on March 5th (Friday) at Korakuen Hall, After that, battle in Ota Ward, Yamanashi, Okayama, Kyoto, Ehime, Aichi, Hyogo, and Shizuoka.
And the victory deciding match will be held for the first time in New Japan Pro-Wrestling! Two consecutive battles at Miyagi / Xebio Arena Sendai.

It’s the biggest single elimination tournament of the NJPW calendar, and after 2020 saw New Japan Cup pushed to the summer, 2021 sees the tournament return to its spring slot. Just one day after NJPW celebrates its 49th anniversary in the fabled Budokan Hall, action will begin in Korakuen Hall on Friday March 5, before we head to Ota-ku on March 6, and then around the country, with events culminating on March 20 and 21. These final matches will see New Japan Pro-Wrestling action hit Miyagi’s Xebio Arena Sendai for the very first time!
