Open top bus for champions

Open top bus for champions

There will be an open top bus parade after the match on Saturday. The bus will leave from Gigg Lane at about 5.45pm, although the exact time will depend on the celebrations inside the ground. The bus will drive down to the bottom of Gigg Lane, and then turn left up the Manchester Road. It’s short journey will terminate at the Swan & Cemetery pub - where the squad will disembark for a post-match celebration.


The Swan are putting on a post-match event, with food available and plenty of beer for the thirsty element of our support. Please line the route to give the Champions a suitable reception, and let’s all celebrate our first piece of silverware!


There will also be a brass band inside the ground at half time, playing popular United hits. Spread the word far and wide, it is the last game at Gigg Lane this season and it promises to be a real celebration.


Don’t forget that Under 18s are allowed entry free of charge, so let’s do everything we can to break our attendence record of 4,328.
