Manchester Arena attack: Chelsea cancel Premier League victory parade

Chelsea have cancelled their Premier League victory parade, which was due to take place on Sunday, in the wake of the Manchester Arena attack.

The club say it would be “inappropriate” with the UK terror threat at its highest level after Monday’s bombing killed 22 people.

Chelsea planned an open-top bus tour with the trophy and hoped to add the FA Cup in Saturday’s final with Arsenal.


Players will make a donation to a fund supporting victims of the attack.

They will also wear black armbands during the final at Wembley.

“Everyone associated with Chelsea Football Club offers our heartfelt condolences to those affected by Monday’s terror attack in Manchester,” said a club statement.

“Our thoughts go out to all the victims and their families and friends.”
