BY foxsports • May 14, 2011

The event will take place at lunchtime on the Bank Holiday Monday and the open-top bus parade will give fans the chance to join in the celebrations of a record-breaking 19th league title and also a potential Champions League success. United's chief executive David Gill has revealed the club has been inundated with pleas from fans for a parade and he feels that it is a perfect way to honour this season's achievements. "Breaking the record of league title wins is a big day in the club's illustrious history," he said. "We have received many letters and e-mails from fans encouraging us to hold a public celebration of that achievement and we believe this is a fitting way to mark it." Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council, said: "Manchester United winning their 19th top flight title is a remarkable and historic achievement. "We're sure fans will come out in their droves to celebrate and acclaim their heroes and that 30 May will be a memorable day for the whole city."
