Championship of Champions VIII ran from 30 September to 8 October 1996, and was won by Chris Rogers. This Championship of Champions also acted as "Group 0" for the Supreme Championship, in that its winner was granted automatic entry into the latter championship's quarter-finals.

This was the first Championship of Champions in which neither of the grand final's contestants were past series winners: Kenneth Michie and Chris Rogers had been beaten in their series grand finals by David Acton and Darren Shacklady respectively.
