Details of the route for Manchester City's FA Cup victory parade have been confirmed.

Tens of thousands of supporters will line the streets on Monday as the parade travels from Albert Square to the City of Manchester stadium.

The city centre celebration is a free, non-ticketed event but supporters are advised to arrive early.

It follows Manchester City's victory over Stoke City in the FA Cup final, the club's first trophy in 35 years.

Parade organisers said City manager Roberto Mancini and his team would parade the cup from an open-top bus, starting at 1800 BST.

Mancini and the players will address an expected crowd of 10,000 people in front of the Town Hall before the bus winds its way to the club's home ground at Eastlands.

The parade will travel along Princess Street, Portland Street and Newton Street, before heading east along Great Ancoats Street.

The route (approximate times)

Albert Square: 1800 - 1815 BST

Princess St: 1815 - 1830 BST

Portland St: 1830 - 1900 BST

Newton St: 1900 - 1915 BST

Great Ancoats St: 1915 - 1930 BST

Every Street: 1930 - 1945 BST

Ashton New Rd: 1945 - 2030 BST

City of Manchester Stadium: finish

The bus will then turn up Every Street before beginning its final approach to the stadium to arrive at approximately 2030 BST.

Greater Manchester Police have confirmed that Albert Square will be closed from 0930 BST, Princess Street from 1400 BST and Portland Street from 1600 BST.

The rest of the route will close depending on the number of people along the route.

Transport for Greater Manchester, the organisation in charge of public transport, has warned passengers and motorists to expect significant disruption.

Diversions will be in place with the huge crowds expected to affect services including the Metrolink.

Meanwhile, Manchester City has said a ticketed firework celebration party for fans at the stadium after the victory parade has sold out.
