TICKETS for the final of the World Pipe Band Championships have sold out weeks before the event on Glasgow Green.
More than 30,000 spectators are expected at the competition which earns £10million for the city's economy.
This year 230 bands featuring 8000 pipers and drummers will battle it out for the top prize in a day-long contest. Although tickets for the final have gone, general admission tickets are still available.
They give access to Glasgow Green for the Glasgow World Highland Games, Highland dancing competition and kids' zone.
General admission tickets also give access to unreserved seating for the morning qualifier sessions.
Full-price tickets are £10, with concessions at £6 and family tickets for two adults and three children £24.
The Championships, which are organised by Glasgow Life on behalf of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association and the city council, begin at 9am on Saturday August 11.
Archie Graham, chairman of Glasgow Life, said: "The Worlds are quite simply unique. The noise and colour on show on Glasgow's oldest common ground provide a spectacular backdrop to the most hotly contested prize in world piping.
"Even though grade one tickets are now sold out, there is still plenty of opportunity to come and enjoy some amazing performances at this most Scottish event."
The event has been operating regularly since 1930. The present world champion is the Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band of Northern Ireland.
In the juvenile categories, band members must be under eighteen, with the exception of one adult player.
The remaining categories have no age restriction, but are based on proficiency.
The highly coveted grade one title remained in Scotland until 1987, when the Canadian 78th Fraser Highlanders Pipe Band became the first overseas band to win the award.
