Manchester City will celebrate the club’s historic fourth consecutive Premier League title win with a victory parade through the city this weekend.

Pep Guardiola’s side became the first-ever male team since the inception of the Football League in 1888 to win the league four times on the bounce.

When will the parade be held?

Manchester City’s title-winning parade will be taking place on Sun 26 May.

What time will Manchester City’s parade start?

In order to allow enough time for Deansgate to be reset once all Great Manchester Run activities end at 3.30pm on Sunday, the Manchester City celebratory parade will begin in the evening at 7.30pm and is expected to finish around 9pm.

What route will the parade take?

The open-top bus will start its route from the National Football Museum, through Cathedral Gardens and along the length of Deansgate, stopping at several points along the route to allow fans to catch a glimpse of the team and Premier League trophy.

With the Great Manchester Run and trophy parade taking place on the same day, Manchester city centre is expected to be extremely busy. Multiple road closures will be in place, with those planning on travelling into town urged to consider using public transport.

A list of road closures over the weekend in connection with the Great Manchester Run is already available online at and will be added to ahead of the weekend.

Fans planning to attend Sunday’s parade are asked to travel light – no big bags – and not to bring glass bottles in with them.
