There will be an open-top bus tour with Pep Guardiola’s title-winning squad departing the Town Hall at 6pm, before embarking on a route through the city centre and finishing at Manchester Cathedral.
Nick Cushing's side, who won the the FA Women's Cup and the Continental Cup, will also be parading their silverware on what looks set to be a special evening in Manchester.
The players will then appear on stage at the Cathedral at 7pm. Special guests on the night include Tom and Joe from Blossoms, Mike Joyce, Micah Richards, Shaun Goater, David White, Tommy Booth, Gary Owen, Dennis Tueart, Alex Williams, Mike Summerbee, Tony Book, Paul Dickov and Kevin Horlock.
For anyone wishing to watch, this is on a non-ticketed, first come first served basis.
Sir Richard Leese, Leader of Manchester City Council, said: “Huge congratulations to Manchester City on a remarkable season. Some things don't change with City - fans like me are still on a knife edge - but that win shows a brilliant team at their absolute best. The parade next week will be a fitting end to a nail biting campaign.
City fan or not, all Mancunians can be proud of the achievement that has brought the Premier League title back to Manchester for a second successive year - a feat rarely achieved outside of this city. Manchester is a name at the very top of world football and the city’s success spreads our name across the globe, helping to attract investment and supports the continued economic growth of our city."
A stage show at the Cathedral will kick things off at 5pm, with the parade itself beginning at 6pm and departing from the Town Hall. The bus will then make its way past Peter Street and travel down Deansgate before ending at the Cathedral at 6.45pm. The players will then be presented on stage at 7pm, with the event scheduled to finish at 7.30pm.
To enable the parade to take place, a number of road closures and parking suspensions will be in force along the route for part of Monday 20 May.
