The Holo New Year Cup or 「ホロお正月CUP」 (formerly 「ホロライブ杯 」[1]) is an open game tournament held by Hololive members. The tournament features a growing roster of talents participating a series of races in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The tournament was first held in 2019, and has been a yearly occurrence since 2021.

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 Festhappening 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" and a "losers bracket". 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.
