Chelsea Football Club, in anticipation of winning the Barclays Premier League, are planning to hold a victory parade in Fulham on Monday 25th May.
Jose Mourinho’s team, who still have to face Arsenal this Sunday, are at this point nine points clear at the top of the table, although they still have six games left in the season.
The parade is due to start at 12 noon at Stamford Bridge and finish roughly an hour after, fans are recommended to get there an hour early.
The letter released to the public read, “I am writing to give you early notice of a Victory Parade that will take place in Fulham if Chelsea Football Club wins the Premier League.”
Adding, “If Chelsea win, a Victory Parade will take place on Monday, May 25. This would be wholly funded by the football club, as would the clean-up operation. The parade would start around 12pm and should finish around 1pm.”
If all goes well the team’s buses will depart from the Stamford Bridge’s west entrance before travelling east along Fulham Road, turning right onto Hortensia Road and then onto Kings Road. You can expect plenty of chanting, drinking and loud whistling as the convoy takes a small break at Eel Brook Common, where the procession will end.
There will be a National Rail strike in action on the 25th so it’s advised to plan accordingly, you will most likely need to take public transport as parking suspensions will be implemented anywhere along the route, baring local residents. If you are a local resident, expect traffic as the parade is expected to bring a lot of visitors and will most likely cause slowdowns and possibly traffic jams.
