The dates for this year’s NJPW G1 Climax have been revealed, first beginning in July and running through August 18, 2022.

The tournament returns to its usual Summertime slot this year, with the first twenty shows occurring in Hokkaido. The final three events will then happen at Budokan Hall in Tokyo, Japan. Due to the Olympic Games, the past two years saw the G1 Climax take place in the Fall instead of in the Summer.

The finals of last year’s tournament saw Kazuchika Okada defeat Kota Ibushi by referee stoppage after Ibushi injured his shoulder during the match. Okada would then go on to become IWGP World Heavyweight Champion in January at Wrestle Kingdom 16.
