Manchester City fans will not have long to wait to celebrate their side’s Premier League title.
The club has confirmed they will hold a victory parade in their home city tomorrow (Monday 23 May).
The Sky Blues made a dramatic comeback against Aston Villa to clinch the title with a 3-2 victory on Sunday at the Eithad stadium.
And the victorious 2021/22 side will celebrate with their fans when they tour Manchester on a open-top bus on Monday.
Pep Guardiola and his squad will set off from Exchange Square at around 6pm, travel to St Mary’s Gate and then south on Deansgate, before finishing their 1.5km route at the Beetham Tower about an hour later - where a live stage show will take place.
On-stage entertainment will start at 4.30pm with the players expected to arrive about 7pm.
The entrance to the parade stage viewing area is only accessible via Deansgate and the club warned all fans will be searched before entering.
You don’t need a ticket to gain access but people wanting to watch are advised to get there early.
There will also be screens along Deansgate to help more people see what’s happening on stage.
Road closures will be in place in parts of the city, and it’s recommended fans catch the tram if they want to attend. From 12pm trams will be diverted from using Exchange Square and will instead travel via Shudehill and Market Street. This will be until 8pm, TfGM said.
