The likes of Erling Haaland and Jack Grealish will be paraded through the streets of Deansgate, alongside the Premier League trophy.

Manchester City Council have confirmed Manchester City FC’s plans to celebrate their historic 2023/24 Premier League title with a bus parade through the streets of the city centre.

Pep Guardiola’s side beat West Ham United 3-1 on Sunday to finish first ahead of Arsenal and became the first team in the history of English football to win four consecutive top-flight titles.

It’s an achievement worthy of celebration and, in conjunction with Manchester city council, the club have planned an open-top bus route to showcase the trophy. That will take place on Sunday 26 May between 7:30-9pm.

The parade has been arranged for later in the evening due to the Great Manchester Run which is set to be staged in Manchester earlier that afternoon, with the event finishing around 3:30pm. It will mean a quick turnaround before Erling Haaland, Jack Grealish et al take to the city-centre streets, with the bus route set to begin at the National Football Museum, before heading through Cathedral Gardens and along the length of Deansgate, with several stops planned en route.

By that point, Guardiola’s relentless winning machine could have hoovered up another trophy. City face Manchester United in FA Cup final on Saturday, meaning the Blues may return from Wembley with a second piece of silverware.

That would be another unique achievement given no side have ever won back-to-back league and cup doubles. City won both trophies last season - in addition to the Champions League - which was also celebrated with an open-top bus parade. In fact, these events have become commonplace for the Cityzens.

Manchester City council are advising those attending to use public transport with many road closers scheduled, and has confirmed fans should avoiding bringing large bags or glass bottles.
