Tens of thousands of Liverpool fans are expected to line the city’s streets on Sunday to give a heroes welcome to the team after their Champions League triumph.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will savour a victory parade after Liverpool were crowned champions of Europe for a sixth time in Madrid on Saturday night.

Thousands of fans watching on TV in Liverpool city centre spilled out of pubs and into the streets to begin a huge street party following the final whistle on their 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

Despite celebrating long into the night, fans will again take to the streets in homage to their heroes as the players show off their trophy on an open-top bus.

The parade, which starts at 4pm, will begin at Allerton Maze, south Liverpool, and travel northbound on Queens Drive towards the Fiveways roundabout and Rocket flyover.

From there it will journey along Queens Drive, Mill Bank, West Derby Road, Islington, Leeds Street and The Strand before finishing at Blundell Street, along the city’s UNESCO World Heritage waterfront.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson tweeted: “Make sure you get to your vantage points around the City on time to welcome home the victorious @LFC the Liverpool team bus parade route is below and starts at 4.00 pm. Have great day and well done Liverpool FC.”

The parade takes place when Liverpool is already staging two major events – River Festival Liverpool and the Bordeaux Wine Festival – which are already expected to attract tens of thousands of people to the city.

Liverpool City Council said significant travel disruption was expected around the parade route.
