With Liverpool one trophy closer to a monumental quadruple, fans may get the chance to celebrate their successful season with a victory parade through the city. But an Liverpool victory parade depends on how the rest of the season pans out.
Liverpool city council has confirmed that there will be a victory parade only if Liverpool win the Premier League or Champions League final.
Having already won the Carabao Cup and FA Cup with wins over Chelsea each time at Wembley, Liverpool are half way towards their goal.
With Manchester City dropping points against West Ham today (Sunday 15 May), the Premier League title race is still alive.
Liverpool face Real Madrid in Paris on 28 May in the final game of massive season for the reds. The Liverpool Victory Parade is pencilled in for the following day (29 May), if they’re successful with either the Champions League or Premier League.
Mayor of Liverpool, Joanne Anderson, said: “We all remember those iconic images from 2019 as hundreds of thousands of people lined the parade route to celebrate this incredible footballing achievement.
“Staging an event of this scale does not happen overnight – our events team is among the best in the world at what they do, and they have done all they can behind the scenes and are now at the point where they need to start communicating with residents and businesses about the plans in place
“The team working on it will have less than 24 hours’ notice once that final whistle blows so we need as much time as possible to prepare in advance to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
“We are working in partnership with LFC, Merseyside Police and travel partners to ensure any parade runs smoothly and safely, and if the Reds do bring home the silverware, we can make sure we give them the heroes’ homecoming they deserve.”
In 2019, around 750,000 people watched the Liverpool victory parade after their European Cup win over Tottenham in the Champions League final.
