Following Monday night terror attack in Manchester, Premier League champion Chelsea has called off its victory parade.
The club announced that it would be inappropriate to hold a parade in London this weekend following Monday’s bombing at a concert in Manchester.
Sports Village Square gathered that the club remarked that “given the heightened security threat announced by the government, and recognizing that this is a developing situation, we have given this careful consideration.”
Chelsea also says it does not want to divert emergency services. English champions traditionally celebrate by driving through the city streets on an open top bus, with players holding trophies and waving to fans.
Victorious Manchester United in the Europa League may also not be able to hold a victory parade, given that the tragedy took place in their home city.
