London (AFP) – Leicester will hold their Premier League title parade on May 16, the newly crowned champions announced on Friday.
Foxes manager Claudio Ranieri and his players will travel on an open-top bus through the city before finishing at Victoria Park, where the squad will take to a stage in front of thousands of their adoring fans.
The team will be on stage at around 1800 GMT for an hour before the celebrations carry on around the city.
Leicester, one of the most unlikely champions in the history of English football, clinched the first top-flight title in their 132-year history on Monday after second placed Tottenham’s draw at Chelsea.
Captain Wes Morgan will be presented with the Premier League trophy following Leicester’s final home game of the season against Everton on Saturday and the midlands club conclude their fairytale season at Chelsea on May 15.
