The Hololive New Year Cup (Japanese: ホロお正月CUP, horo oshōgatsu kappu), is an annual Mario Kart tournament held by Hololive members. Participation in the tournament is voluntary; however, nearly all members try to participate, thus the roster of participants grows each year as new members join Hololive. The tournament was first held in November 2019 as the Hololive Cup (Japanese: ホロライブ杯, hororaibu hai)[1]. After this, the tournaments were moved to coincide with New Year's celebrations and rebranded as the "Hololive New Year Cup".

Overview[edit source]

The New Year Cup has undergone a few changes from its debut in order to accommodate a growing number of participating talents. In its first edition for 2019, the tournament was held with 21 members, and consisted of 4 preliminary races, 4 final races, and 7 "Extra" races that did not factor into the main tournament. There was no tournament in 2020, as this was a busy year for every member in Holopro with Hololive 1st Fest happening in January, Hololive Indonesia debuting in Spring, Hololive English debuting in September, and Hololive 2nd Fest being held in December. The tournament would return once again in 2021 as the Hololive New Year Cup, which is now its current branding. The 2021 edition of the tournament saw the participation increase from 21 to 25 members. The tournament was now a double-elimination format, with a "winners bracket" (Tsuyo Cup) and a "losers bracket" (Zako Cup). The tournament also separated all participants into 3 groups "A", "B", and "C", with a final set of races held for both "loser bracket" and "winners bracket" at the end. Additionally, this new format allowed Tokoyami Towa to serve as a co-host with A-chan to provide commentary throughout, and interview some of the members. The 2022 edition of the tournament saw the least amount of changes to the format, as the grouping system made a return once again, but saw the largest number of participants thus far. A total of 44 members from all the Hololive branches took part in the tournament, with Hololive Indonesia and Hololive English making their debut appearances.
