When is Liverpool's victory parade after FA Cup final win over Chelsea

Liverpool are one step closer to a historic quadruple after claiming a dramatic penalty shootout win over Chelsea in Saturday's FA Cup final.

Having already lifted the Carabao Cup at Wembley, the Reds have already picked up two trophies, and are still in the mix for the Premier League title, and indeed the Champions League.

Liverpool take on Real Madrid in Paris on May 28 in what will be their final game of an already hugely successful season. They will then pay tribute to their fans with a parade through the city the following day.

That's the plan, anyway, with Liverpool Council confirming that a victory parade will only take place if the club claim the Premier League or Champions League titles. The red half of Merseyside will no doubt be hoping they claim both.

Confirming the plans, 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.”
