This will be the 75th anniversary of Glasgow hosting the renowned event for the first time in 1948, and the city has staged the Worlds ever since 1986.
Last year’s Championships saw 40,000 spectators descend on Glasgow Green to watch and hear 146 bands from Scotland and as far afield as the USA, Canada, Austria and Australia battling to be crowned the winners.
The title of 2022 world champions went to Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band, with Inveraray and District Pipe Band finishing runners-up.
Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association Chief Executive, Colin Mulhearn, said: “The huge attendance last year’s spectacular event attracted, and numbers of the bands competing, is testimony to how much these iconic Championships mean to the international piping community and to fans of traditional Scottish music.
“I’ve no doubt that this year’s special 75th anniversary of the Worlds coming to Glasgow will be an unforgettable event. We’re expecting a tremendous turn-out, so I would urge everyone planning to attend not to delay in booking so they ensure they secure their tickets in advance.”
