Fans have raised eyebrows at Tottenham Hotspur after the club confirmed plans for their Champions League victory parade.
Yes, Spurs mean business on this one. According to the Premier League side, the open-top bus parade would be held on 2nd June, which would come the day after the final against Liverpool.
As part of their plans, the Champions League finalists have also revealed that they want to build a stage outside of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the players to lift the trophy.
“The club is now able to confirm its plans for an open-top bus victory parade on Sunday 2nd June if we are successful in the previous night’s UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool in Madrid,” reads a statement on the club’s website.
“The open-top bus route will depart the stadium via Northumberland Park at approximately 2.30 p.m. and follow the below route:
- Northumberland Park (Eastbound)
- Willoughby Lane (Southbound)
- Lansdowne Road (Westbound)
- Tottenham High Road (Northbound)
“We expect the open-top bus parade to last approximately one hour, finishing where the High Road meets Park Lane.
“A temporary staging area will be erected on the High Road outside the stadium to receive the players and coaching staff for a presentation of the trophy for fans gathered in the area.
“Please note, there will be road closures in place along the parade route and associated side roads to maintain public safety — closures will be implemented early in the day and removed as crowds disperse.
“To support the road closures, TfL’s buses and general traffic will be diverted.”
Unsurprisingly, football fans feel that the club are being a bit too eager with announcing their plans, which will leave them a bit red-faced if they end up losing.
Liverpool will face Spurs on 1st June at the Wanda Metropolitano.
