Same day as the Great Manchester Run - town is going to be busyyyy.

The victorious Manchester City will be taking to the streets in the city centre once again to celebrate their historic four-in-a-row achievement.

Details of this year’s parade have just been announced, travelling from the National Football Museum and along Deansgate.

An open-top bus will carry the team and their winners’ silverware through town on Sunday, marking their unprecedented fourth Premier League victory in a row – even if they did miss out on an FA Cup win yesterday.

If previous years are anything to go by, thousands of fans will flood to the city centre to celebrate with Manchester City when they hit the streets on 26 May.

This also happens to be the same day as the Great Manchester Run, so Manchester is expected to be extremely busy.


After tens of thousands of runners cross the finish line on Deansgate, the space will be readied for the Manchester City Parade, which will take place from 7.30pm until around 9pm.

There’ll be a number of road closures in place on Sunday for both the race and the parade.


The Blues are the first ever male team since the inception of the Football League in 1888 to win four successive championships.

Councillor Bev Craig, Leader of Manchester City Council, said: “Congratulations to Manchester City. 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.

“We know how much this means to fans of the club young and old – not just in Manchester but around the globe – and the homecoming parade on Sunday promises to be an unmissable night to remember for fans and players alike as they celebrate this historic title win together.”


A list of road closures over the weekend in connection with the Great Manchester Run is already available online at manchester.gov.uk/roadclosures and will be added to ahead of the weekend with any further road closures deemed necessary in order to facilitate the Manchester City parade.
