The 2016–17 Pro50 Championship was the fifteenth edition of the Pro50 Championship, a List A cricket tournament in Zimbabwe. The competition ran from 10 February to 6 June 2017. It was originally scheduled to start in May, but was brought forward to February in preparation for Zimbabwe's One Day International (ODI) series against Afghanistan.[1] The opening fixtures replaced the scheduled fixtures in the Logan Cup, which were rescheduled for later in the competition.[2][3] The Pro50 Championship restarted late in May 2017, following the conclusion of the Logan Cup.[4]

Matabeleland Tuskers won the tournament with one game to spare.[5]
