Manchester City to parade Premier League trophy in city centre

Record-breaking Premier League winners Manchester City are to mark their four-in-a-row achievement with a victory parade on Sunday.

The first team to win four successive league titles in English football’s top tier will begin the parade at 19:30 BST at The National Football Museum, finishing 90 minutes later on Deansgate.

Manchester City Council leader Bev Craig said the parade would be an “unmissable night to remember” for fans and players.

The parade is taking place later in the day to allow the streets to be reset following the Great Manchester Run, which takes place earlier in the day.

The “Sky Blues” recorded their unprecedented achievement on Sunday beating West Ham 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium to win the title by two points over Arsenal.

Manchester City Council said there would be several stopping points along the route for fans to take photographs.

Ms Craig said: “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.”

The council said people who want to join the party should note the city centre is already expected to be busy as tens of thousands of runners take part in the race, which is due to finish at 15:30 on Deansgate.

Fans planning to attend the parade are asked to travel light and not to bring big bags or glass bottles
