 DCI World Champions

It started with the Kingsmen in 1972, and it stretches in an unbroken chain from then until this day. 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 last 49 years.
