Liverpool will hold an open-top bus parade through the city regardless of whether they collect any more trophies this season.
As confirmed by liverpoolfc.com, Liverpool have ‘officially accepted’ the council’s offer of a parade next Sunday May 29th.
The Liverpool trophy parade will begin at 4pm on the day after The Reds take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final. Fingers crossed that Jurgen Klopp’s side can add to the FA Cup and Carabao Cup already collected this season.
If not though, it’s great that the supporters will have a chance to thank the team for an unbelievable season.
For the first time, Liverpool FC Women will also join the men on the parade, having won the FA Women’s Championship this season.
Supporters say thank you
Having been robbed of the chance to celebrate the Premier League title win in 2020, this will be a big release for the fans.
It looks unlikely that Liverpool will have another league title to celebrate. But regardless of whether Liverpool do add the Premier League or Champions League to their collection, this team deserve a big send-off.
If they can add either one of those trophies, the let-off will be enormous. Few will have forgotten the scenes at the parade when Liverpool won the Champions League in 2019. Crowds reportedly reached three-quarters of a million as supporters rushed to see the team.
Conversely, spirits could be down if Real Madrid manage to get the better of Liverpool on the day before the parade. Madrid haven’t lost a European final since losing to The Reds in 1981, and they have some superb players. A win is by no means assured.
In that scenario, the crowds should serve to remind the players of just what an exceptional effort they have put in.
The relationship between team and supporters is currently potentially at an all-time high. After such a long time without feeling support in the stadium, the players must be looking forward to celebrating their successes with their adoring public.
