Where and when is the Manchester City parade and what time does it start?

Manchester City will hold a victory parade for the fourth year in a row as they celebrate the club’s historic Premier League title.

The Blues will take to the streets on Sunday (May 26) to show their silverware on a victory tour of the city after becoming the first team in English football history to win four consecutive league titles.

The parade is expected to last two hours, from 7.30pm to 9pm, as the Greater Manchester Run will take place earlier in the day and runners will finish the race along Deansgate.

Large crowds are expected to turn out to watch the four-time champions lift the Premier League trophy from an open-top bus which will travel from the National Football Museum through Cathedral Gardens and Deansgate, stopping at various points along the way. Supporters have been asked to travel light, without large bags or glass bottles.

Manchester City Council has warned that there will be a significant number of road closures and large bus diversions throughout the day due to the Great Manchester Run and parade.

The council has said the tram will be the best travel option on Sunday with many stops located near spectator points along the parade route, particularly Victoria, Shudehill, St Peter’s Square and Deansgate-Castlefield. On Sunday, services will run every 15 minutes on all lines.

The Exchange Square tram stop will close from 5pm, with trams diverted from Victoria to St Peter’s Square via Shudehill and Market Street.
