On Monday afternoon there will be an open top bus tour with Pep Guardiola’s back to back title-winning squad and also Nick Cushing’s double domestic cup winners, departing at approximately 6pm from Manchester Town Hall, before taking a 1.5km route through Manchester city centre, finishing at Manchester Cathedral.
There will be six trophies on show with Guardiola's squad having secured the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Community Shield after an historic season while Cushing's side secured both the Women's FA Cup and Contintental Cup after their own magnificent campaign.
Players will be presented on stage at the end of the parade route, at Manchester Cathedral, from approximately 7pm. The entertainment on the main stage, located at the Cathedral, will start from 4pm. We suggest you arrive early for the best viewing experience although there will be relay screens around Deansgate to show all the action.
The parade route is starting at St. Peter’s Square, Mount Street, Peter Street, Deansgate, Greengate Square ending at Manchester Cathedral.
For anyone wishing to watch, this is on a non-ticketed, first come first served basis.
