Four-in-a-row Premier League champions Manchester City

Newly crowned Premier League champions Manchester City have been invited to celebrate their historic and completely unprecedented four-in-a-row achievement with fans this Sunday 26 May in a celebration event in Manchester that will see them parade from the National Football Museum and along Deansgate in the city centre.

As the first ever male team since the inception of the Football League in 1888 to win four successive championships, civic leaders were keen to put an invite out to the club for them to celebrate their historic achievement with their fans in the city. 

Manchester City fans will be able to get a glimpse of the team and the all-important winners' silverware as the team make their way in an open top bus from the National Football Museum, through Cathedral Gardens and along the length of Deansgate, stopping at several points along the way to give everyone plenty of time to see their heroes and grab a picture. 

Members of the public who want to join in the celebrations should note that the city centre is already expected to be busy on Sunday as the Great Manchester Run is also taking place that day and will see tens of thousands of runners take to the city's streets, with the final stretch of the race finishing on Deansgate. 

In order to allow enough time for Deansgate to be reset once all Great Manchester Run activities end at 3:30 pm on Sunday, the Manchester City celebratory parade will be an evening parade starting at 7:30 pm and expected to finish around 9:00 pm.  Football fans who are coming into town just for the parade should bear these timings in mind when making their plans.

Drivers should also note that there will be a number of road closures in place on Sunday in order to facilitate both the Great Manchester Run and the football parade.  The use of public transport is therefore strongly recommended.

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

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 and will be added to ahead of the weekend with any further road closures deemed necessary in order to facilitate the Manchester City parade.
