 DCI World Champions

With the new decade upon us, what are we going to see and/or hear? Who's going to dominate, and will there ever be another three-peat?


Every summer, the top corps in the country gather in one place to vie for the title of DCI World Champions. From DCIs Hall of Fame, I'm pleased to salute the latest winner and honor all those who have come before.


To be listed here is no small achievement. The following corps names reflect the efforts of many individuals. Who have worked hard. Struggled long, and achieved much during the 2020s.

* Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020, the DCI Summer Tour was Canceled*

* Still recovering from 2020, 2021 was a summer of exhibition for a few corps*
