Manchester City parade route revealed

Here's the first look at Manchester City’s FA Cup victory parade route, which is taking place on Monday night.

An open-top bus containing Roberto Mancini and his squad will be leaving Albert Square at 6pm, and Greater Manchester Police is expecting around 100,000 people to line the route from the city centre to Eastlands.

Albert Square, which has a standing capacity of around 10,000 people, will be open to the public from 4pm on Monday, on a non-ticketed, first come, first served basis, but the police said there will be a booze ban along the parade route.

The parade will culminate in a celebration at the City of Manchester Stadium that will last until 9.45pm.

Here’s the route in full:

Albert Square – 6pm
Princess Street – 6.15-6.30pm
Portland Street – 6.30-7pm
Newton Street – 7pm-7.15pm
Great Ancoats Street – 7.15-7.30pm
Every Street – 7.30-7.45pm
Ashton New Road – 7.45-8.30pm

The parade will involve two buses and 400 police officers. Ian Hopkins, of Greater Manchester Police, said they would have officers at all entry points into the city, although there was no indication of an influx of fans from outside the city, despite the Blues’ growing international profile.

Hopkins also said people breaking the booze ban would be ‘dealt with appropriately.’

Confidential will be there, so tune in on Tuesday morning for exclusive reports and pictures.
