Tournament HistoryEdit

In 2010 Pro Wrestling NOAH announced a new "Global League Tournament" comprising and showcase twelve of Noah's top heavyweight stars and have them compete in round robin matches where the winners of the two divisions would then square off in the tournament finals. The Global League Tournament tournament has often been used as a platform for NOAH to push their rising stars. Wins by young up-and-comers over Japanese legends would usually take their respective careers to new heights.

Past winners include Takeshi Morishima, KENTA, Takashi Sugiura and Naomichi Marufuji. The winner of the tournament, assuming they are not already the champion, has traditionally earned a shot at the GHC Heavyweight Championship. The first tournament was held on March 28 to May 2, 2010. The winner of block A Jun Akiyama faced the winner of block B Yoshihiro Takayama at finals where Takayama won. Yoshihiro Takayama would then receive his shot for the GHC Heavyweight Championship against Takashi Sugiura. However Takayama would fail to win the championship.

Usually the winner of the tournament gets his GHC Heavyweight Championship in December. Yuji Nagata was the only wrestler to win the Noah's Global League Tournament the AJPW's Champion Carnival and NJPW's G1 Climax. In 2011 and 2013 until now the number of participants as increased. Naomichi Marufuji was the only wrestler to successfully win his opportunity and become the new GHC Heavyweight Champion.
