Liverpool FC victory parade confirmed – find out more

by Guy Murphy

Liverpool City Council has confirmed that a victory parade for Liverpool FC to celebrate the club’s achievements this season will take place on Sunday 29 May, starting at 4pm.

The parade does not enter Knowsley. However, it is likely to impact residents looking to attend or travel around the City Region on that day.

The Mayor of Liverpool, Joanne Anderson had already invited the club to take part in a victory parade in preparation for the potential outcome of the season, but following last Saturday’s Wembley win, this has been extended to include the FA Cup

The parade will take place the day after Liverpool play Real Madrid in the Champions League Final in Paris. This is the only time all players are available due to the majority of them traveling on international duty to represent their respective countries immediately after this date.

The parade will celebrate the Reds victorious FA Cup and EFL- Carabao Cup campaigns; and with the club still fighting for the Premier League title and in the final of the Champions League, there is a chance Liverpool FC could be celebrating an unprecedented QUADRUPLE winning season!

For the first time, the parade will also include Liverpool FC Women who clinched the FA Women’s Championship trophy last month.

As the date of the victory parade falls on the anniversary of the Heysel Stadium disaster, throughout the morning of the anniversary Liverpool Football Club, supported by Liverpool City Council, will pay tribute to the 39 supporters who lost their lives on that day. Liverpool City Council and the Club are working together on those plans.
