The Progress Tag Team Championship is a professional wrestling championship created and promoted by the British professional wrestling promotion Progress Wrestling. Introduced on 24 November 2013, the inaugural championship team was FSU (Mark Andrews and Eddie Dennis). The current champions are Sanity (Big Damo and Axel Tischer), who are in their first reign.

History

It was announced at Chapter 9 that beginning in November 2013 there would begin a series of matches to determine the first Progress Tag Team champions. The champions were crowned at Chapter 12, the second anniversary show, in March 2014. As with the Progress Championship not being a conventional championship belt, the Progress Tag Team Championship was originally represented by a shield with the Progress eagle on the front. The shield splits into two, one for each championship holder.

At Chapter 46 the Tag Team shields were replaced with traditional strap title belts, with the design on the front plate of each belt representing the defunct Tag shields.

Reigns

As of April 22, 2024, there have been a total of 28 reigns shared between 20 different teams composed of 40 distinctive individual champions. The inaugural champions were the FSU (Mark Andrews and Eddie Dennis).

The current champions are SAnitY (Big Damo and Axel Tischer), who are in their first reign as a team as well as individually. They defeated previous champions Cheeky Little Buggers (Charles Crowley and Alexxis Falcon) on 5 April 2024 at Chapter 166: Freedom Walks Again in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
