The Jim Crockett Sr. Memorial Cup Tag Team Tournament (commonly known simply as the Crockett Cup) is a tag team professional wrestling tournament first held in April 1986.┬áNational Wrestling Alliance (NWA) member Jim Crockett Promotions (JCP), headed by Jim Crockett Jr., hosted the Crockett Cup, held in honor of Crockett’s father, JCP founder Jim Crockett Sr. and saw participation of teams from various NWA territories. JCP held the tournament again in 1987 and 1988, before JCP was sold to Ted Turner later that year.

In July 2017, the Crockett Foundation, with Classic Pro Wrestling, held the “Crockett Foundation Cup Tag Team Tournament” in New Kent, Virginia, which was not affiliated with the NWA. Bobby Fulton, The Barbarian, and The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, all former Crockett Cup participants, took part in the event as a link to the original tournaments.

The original concept of the Crockett Cup was a single elimination tag team tournament, with the storyline prize of $1,000,000.00 given to the winning team along with a large trophy. The 1986 and 1987 tournaments featured 24 teams, while the 1988 version had 22 teams competing. Each tournament was split over 2 shows to encompass all 23 tournament matches as well as non-tournament matches, in 1986 JCP held a show in the afternoon and another in the evening, while the 1987 and 1988 the tournament was spread out over two days instead.

In October 2018, during the NWA 70th Anniversary Show, it was announced that the Crockett Cup would be returning in 2019. It was later revealed that the event would take place on April 27, 2019, at Cabarrus Arena in Concord, North Carolina. In the week leading up to it, the NWA announced the winners of the Crockett Cup would also become the new NWA World Tag Team Champions. The event was co-produced by the NWA and Ring of Honor (ROH), with other talent from CMLL and New Japan.
