Event details

The entrance to the parade stage viewing area is only accessible via Deansgate and all fans will be searched before entering.

As this is a non-ticketed event, we suggest fans arrive early to get the best possible viewing experience. There will also be screens throughout Deansgate showing all the action from the stage.

There is an accessible viewing platform located on Great Bridgewater Street and members of the Club’s Access Team will be on hand to assist fans who require access.

Commenting on the parade, Councillor Bev Craig, Leader of Manchester City Council, said: “Winning back-to-back titles is a fantastic achievement which I’m sure City fans will be eager to celebrate, especially as the pandemic denied them the chance to do so last season.

The Council are happy to support the parade and expect a memorable occasion as tens of thousands of fans gather in the city centre to share the moment.”
