Victory parade to take place
News Tue 16 May 2017
After securing the Premier League title, and with agreement from all relevant local agencies, we can confirm a victory parade will be held on Sunday 28 May, commencing at midday.
Antonio Conte and his squad, who will contest the FA Cup final the day before the parade, will be accompanied on the route by the Academy, which has enjoyed another unprecedented year of success. The youth team completed a Double of their own, adding the Under-18 Premier League title to a sixth FA Youth Cup in eight years.
The parade will start at midday on Sunday 28 May and finish at around 1pm. The procession will depart Stamford Bridge (west entrance) before travelling east along Fulham Road, turning right onto Hortensia Road, then right onto King’s Road and onto New King’s Road. There will be a short stop at Eel Brook Common, where the procession will end. The buses will then leave the parade route via Parsons Green.
A map of the parade route is available here.
We have been continuing to work closely with all relevant local agencies to ensure that the parade takes place in a peaceful and safe manner, with the least possible inconvenience caused to local residents.
To this end, for public safety reasons, some roads will be closed and access to other roads restricted from 7am on 28 May.
Roads will be re-opened in the afternoon once crowds have dispersed, the clean-up operation has been completed and as soon as it is safe and practicable to do so. Every effort will also be made to re-open the Fulham Road as soon after the parade as possible.
Significant planning has taken place with the local authorities and emergency services to ensure all services from official local authority vehicles and doctors to those responding to emergency calls can meet their obligations.
Following the parade, a full clean-up of the parade route and Eel Brook Common will be carried out to return the area to normal as quickly as possible.
