Arsenal are reportedly planning for a trophy parade, with the possibility that the team could win the Premier League title
With the Premier League title still within reach, Arsenal are gearing up for a potential trophy parade, despite facing stiff competition from Manchester City, who currently hold a game advantage.

Since Arsene Wenger led Arsenal to a memorable 4-0 victory over Aston Villa in the FA Cup final in 2015, the club has been unable to celebrate with a trophy parade, despite clinching two more FA Cup titles. Now, as the title race intensifies nearly a decade later, Arsenal are in contention once again, with the possibility of another triumphant procession through the streets looming.

While the club remains focused on the challenges ahead, preparations for a potential parade are underway, acknowledging the logistical intricacies involved in orchestrating such an event. Previous parades have necessitated the closure of residential areas and attracted large crowds of supporters.

If Arsenal do end up winning the Premier League title this season, there will be a title parade on Monday 20th May at 5pm – the day after the final day where Mikel Arteta’s side host Everton at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal’s last major trophy under manager Mikel Arteta came in 2020 when they lifted the FA Cup. However, celebrations were subdued due to the COVID-19 pandemic, preventing fans from joining in stadium festivities and hindering plans for a traditional parade in Highbury.

Reflecting on past experiences, Arsenal’s 2017 FA Cup victory over Chelsea, which also lacked a celebratory parade, serves as a reminder of external factors that can impact such events. At that time, heightened security concerns prompted the cancellation of planned celebrations even before the final whistle had blown.

Recalling the 2015 parade, which saw Arsenal players and coaching staff embark on a three-hour procession through Islington, provides insight into what a potential future parade might entail. Starting at the Emirates Stadium and winding through various local landmarks, the parade culminated in a reception at Islington Town Hall before returning to the stadium for further celebrations.

With just two games before the end of the season, Arsenal remain hopeful of securing the league title, paving the way for a long-awaited parade. However, achieving this feat will require flawless performances from the Gunners and perhaps a stumble from Manchester City to realise their dreams of celebrating league success on the streets of North London once again.
