Plans are in place for a victory parade if Liverpool Football Club win the UEFA Champions League Final on Saturday 1st June.
If Liverpool triumph the City of Liverpool will formally invite the club to hold a victory parade on Sunday 2 June 2019.
The date has been requested by Liverpool Football Club.
Please see the following information about the planned route and take into account disruption that may be caused to your journeys to and from Liverpool Women’s Hospital as a result.
The team which lifts the trophy will not be confirmed until Saturday 1 June, however due to the major logistical challenges needed to arrange parades of this scale the announcement is being made in advance so residents and businesses in the city can prepare.
The Champions League parade would take place when Liverpool is already staging two major events – River Festival Liverpool and the Bordeaux Wine Festival - which are already expected to attract tens of thousands of people to the waterfront.
The parade (if Liverpool win on Saturday 1 June) will take place on 2 June 2019 and will start at 4pm. If they win, the parade will see the Liverpool FC team parade their newly acquired trophy on an open top bus, along Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage Waterfront.
The route starts at Allerton Maze and will travel north bound on Queens Drive towards the Fiveways roundabout and Rocket flyover. From there it will journey along:
- Queens Drive
- Mill Bank
- West Derby Road
- Leeds Street
- The Strand
- Route finishes at Blundell Street
The parade is expected to attract hundreds of thousands of people, so the city council and Merseytravel are issuing key advice for fans:
- Use the full length of the route. The open top bus won’t be stopping so take advantage of the full length of the route from Queens Drive all the way to The Strand.
- Decide which part of the route you want to wait at and arrive in plenty of time.
- Be patient – it is impossible to predict how long it will take the team bus to travel along the route.
- Due to the number of people coming in to and out of the city, there will be significant demands on public transport, with queuing likely.
It is expected there will be significant disruption around the parade route travel advice is available at www.merseytravel.gov.uk to help spectators, workers and residents plan their journeys in advance. ‘Live’ travel updates and alerts will be available from Merseytravel at www.merseytravel.gov.uk, or via the journey planner app, and on Twitter @Merseytravel, #LFCparade
