The Stampede International Tag Team Championship is the main tag-team title in the Canadian professional wrestling promotion Stampede Wrestling.

When promoter Stu Hart resigned from the National Wrestling Alliance in 1984 the title was renamed the Stampede International Tag-Team Championship. When Stampede wrestling closed down in 1989 the titles were retired, but brought back in 2000 when Stampede Wrestling was restarted by Bruce Hart and Ross Hart and remains active to this day.[1][2]
