Manchester City to celebrate epic four-in-a-row achievement with parade

Premier League champions Manchester City will celebrate their historic and unprecedented four-in-a-row achievement this Sunday.

Fans will be able to get a glimpse of the team and the all-important winners’ silverware as the team make their way in an open top bus from the National Football Museum, through Cathedral Gardens and along the length of Deansgate.

They will stop at several points along the route to give everyone the chance to spy their heroes and grab that all important snap.

It is the first time a male team has won four successive championships since the start of the Football League in 1888.

Fans who want to join in the celebrations should note that the city centre is already expected to be busy on Sunday as the Great Manchester Run is also taking place that day. Tens of thousands of runners will take to the city’s streets, with the final stretch of the race finishing on Deansgate.

In order to allow enough time for Deansgate to be reset once all Great Manchester Run activities end at 3.30 pm on Sunday, the Manchester City celebratory parade will be an evening parade starting at 7.30 pm and expected to finish around 9.00 pm.

Drivers should note that there will be a number of road closures in place on Sunday in order to facilitate both the Great Manchester Run and the football parade. Public transport is being strongly recommended by the city council.

Fans planning to attend Sunday’s parade are asked to travel light – no big bags – and not to bring glass bottles in with them.

Bev Craig, leader of Manchester City Council, said: “Congratulations to Manchester City. Being crowned premier league champions once again and for an astonishing fourth year in a row is an incredible achievement by the club and its players, showing once again that Manchester’s world class sporting credentials really are second to none.

“We know how much this means to fans of the club young and old – not just in Manchester but around the globe – and the homecoming parade on Sunday promises to be an unmissable night to remember for fans and players alike as they celebrate this historic title win together.”

A list of road closures over the weekend in connection with the Great Manchester Run is already available online at manchester.gov.uk/roadclosures
