City's Triumphal March - Monday 14 May

A PARADE will be held on Monday 14 May, to mark Manchester City FC’s first Premier League title, after an epic last day.

There will be an open top bus tour with the team departing from Albert Square before taking a 1.8 mile route through the city centre.

Albert Square will be open to the public from 4pm on a non-ticketed, first come first served basis.

The parade bus is expected to leave from Albert Square at 6.30pm. All timings are estimates.

Sir Richard Leese, Leader of Manchester City Council, said: "Having the city’s two clubs contest the title has brought Manchester worldwide attention and helped boost tourism revenues. 

"It’s been a nail-biting finish to the season and the council stood ready to support a parade whichever club triumphed. 

"This parade is an opportunity for Man City fans, who have experienced countless ups and downs over the years, to celebrate a resounding success. 

"We expect tens of thousands to take to the streets and enjoy an historic moment.”

Just for the record Sir Richard Leese is a MASSIVE BLUE.
