Liverpool Premier League title parade: When will Liverpool celebrate winning the title?

Liverpool have won the Premier League and ended their 30-year wait for a top-flight title. The Reds were running away in the title race before the season was halted by the coronavirus pandemic in March.

The Premier League returned three months later with the Reds needing just six points to clinch the trophy.

A draw at Everton and victory over Crystal Palace in their first two games after the restart moved Jurgen Klopp’s side to within two points of glory.

But with Manchester City dropping points at Chelsea tonight, Liverpool’s fate was sealed.

Liverpool last won the league in the 1989/90 season and this marks their first Premier League success since the competition’s inception in 1992.

When will the Liverpool title parade take place?

After winning a major trophy clubs will traditionally stage a title parade around their city in a celebration with the fans.

Following their Champions League win last year, around 750,000 supporters lined the city streets of Liverpool to welcome the squad back from Madrid.

Grander scenes would have been expected for winning their maiden Premier League title but fans will have to wait a while for a potential parade.

Due to the coronavirus crisis, the UK government has banned large gatherings until further notice.

Speaking to Sky Germany earlier this month, Klopp said he shared the fans’ frustrations over the absence of a title-winning parade.

But the Reds boss assured supporters the club will look to plan a celebratory event when it has been deemed safe to do so.

“That you can’t celebrate in the way you’ve always dreamed of, that’s not nice, I totally understand that,” Klopp said.

“I feel the same way. It’s not that my ideal is to celebrate alone in the stadium, then just drive home.

“It wasn’t like that when you thought about it. But that cannot be changed now.

“Why should we now make a big deal about something that can’t be changed?

“There comes a day when life will get back to normal. When someone has found the vaccine, when someone has found a solution to the problem, when infection rates are zero or below – that day will come eventually.

“Then we have the right to celebrate what we want to celebrate on that day.”

Klopp added that it will still be a special occasion for everyone involved even if they have to celebrate it midway through next season.

“If this is the 12th or 13th matchday of next season and we want to celebrate it – who is going to stop it?” he said.

“Then we still have the trophy and then we can drive it around town and stand on the bus.

“If other people then think that we are completely crazy, I honestly don’t care.

“Can it then still be a special celebration? No question. It’s different, but different is sometimes absolutely OK.”
