The Mega Drive Championships

For over 15-years Mega Drive competitions have been held on Sega's classic console the Sega Mega Drive. Over an array of retro games, the hopeful members meet to battle and determine which one of them is worthy of being admitted to the elite and crowned Champion. Pride, passion and Pete Sampras Tennis... To be this good takes AGES!

Established in 2001, The Mega Drive Championships captivated the minds and ambitions of its participants. The tournaments expanded across the globe to become an International series of events, which, at their peak, saw competitions held on three different continents! History was made in 2007 when, in a monumental moment, a team from Ireland travelled to face a team in England in the awesome Anglo-Irish Mega Drive Tournament. European Mega Drive Championships were held for the following 3-years, as teams from different European nations met to determine which country boasted the most elite Mega Drive athletes.

On the finest video games produced in the 16-bit era the battles are fought: the treacherous platforms of the epic Sonic the Hedgehog 2, the mean arenas in Streets of Rage, the bitter and gruelling duels of Golden Axe, the colourful confusion of Columns, the perilous drops of Micro Machines and the heavy button bashing of Street Fighter 2, where the wrong move is the difference between life and death. To master them all is to be the Champion.

Pick up that controller, climb up the league table, eliminate your opponent in a knockout, perform a speed-run, grab just one more victory and secure an additional point. The competitions are wide and the challenge is immense. Enjoy 16-bit retro gaming at its most extreme. Be the Mega Drive Champion!
