(14 May 2012) An estimated 100,000 Manchester City Football Club supporters thronged the streets of Manchester for the Victory Parade to celebrate their team winning the Premier League Trophy. This sea of blue filled the limited space of Albert Square, where the Parade started, and the pavements along the route of the Parade taken by the open-top bus that carried the team and their trophy around the City. The team were left in no doubt about the appreciation felt by their fans as they passed along the streets in a cacophony of sounds and waving flags.
