The World Pipe Band Championships have been operating regularly since 1930, when the Scottish Pipe Band Association (today known as the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association) was formed. For competitive bands, the title of World Champion is highly coveted, and this event is seen as the culmination of a year's worth of preparation, rehearsal and practice.

Saturday 11th August 2007 saw 286 bands descending upon Glasgow Green to decide who would be the next World Champions over 8 Grades. The rain couldn't dampen the spirits of the bands or the fantastic Glasgow crowd in what was yet another exciting competition.

The six winning bands from the previous year's championships get an automatic entry into the final, so on the morning of the big event the other entrants play off for the final six places.
