Arsenal have announced their FA Cup trophy victory parade six days ahead of the final against Hull City at Wembley.
This Sunday’s planned parade would start at 11am from the Emirates Stadium before going through Drayton Park, Aubert Park, Highbury Park, Highbury Grove, St Paul’s Road and into Upper Street and a reception at Islington Assembly Hall.
The parade would conclude with a team appearance on the Emirates podium.
Traffic notices have already been served in Islington with the Gunners planning an open-top bus parade, the day after the Wembley showdown with the Tigers.
The North London club made similar plans in 2006 before their Champions League final against Barcelona in Paris, where they were beaten 2-1 by the Spanish club and their parade was duly scrapped.
The club’s last bus celebration came in 2004 following ‘The Invincibles’ unbeaten Premier League season. They did not parade in the wake of their 2005 FA Cup victory over Manchester United, incidentally, this was the last time Arsene Wenger’s side won a trophy.
