Welcome to the Metro Cup 2014


Our Main Sponsor

On Saturday, February 15th, 2014 the Metro Branch of the EUSPBA will be holding the annual Metro Cup Solo Piping Competition at the Ramada Inn ( formerly the Holiday Inn North) in Newark, NJ starting at 8:00 am. The address is 160A Frontage Rd, Newark, NJ 07114

Once again we will have the Pipe Major George M. Bell amateur grade one contest featuring the top player from each of the six branches of the EUSPBA as well as the top players from, the Midwest Pipe Band Association, the Southern United States Pipe Band Association, The Western United States Pipe Band Association, the Pipers and Pipe Band Society of Ontario in Canada, and the winner of the CLASP competition that was held in Glasgow this past summer.

The Metro Cup was held on February 16th 2013 and as we promised it was a full day of the best bagpipers in the land duking it out to win in one of the most lucrative bagping contests in the world. Angus MacColl of Benderloch, Scotland won the Medley selection and took 2nd prize in the Piobaireachd contest and was the overall winner of the 2013 Metro Cup. Bruce Gandy of Halifax took 1st place in the Piobaireachd contest.
