"Regardless of whether you are a Red, Blue or not a football fan at all, an event like this has a hugely positive impact and will once again shine the international spotlight on the city," said Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson.

"We are all tremendously proud of LFC's achievement and you can already feel the buzz around the city ahead of the final.

"The club requested the parade takes place on the Sunday, and even though it's already a busy day for the city, we want to make sure we are ready to give them the heroes' welcome they deserve should they win.

"I understand there will be disappointment for those fans who are unable to get back from Kiev in time, but it was a similar situation in 2005 and we have to be guided by the club in terms of the date and time.

"We're keeping everything crossed for the final and hope the team and the fans do Liverpool proud in Kiev as they have throughout the competition."

Liverpool's potential Champions League parade route extended .
The potential victory parade route for Liverpool if they win the Champions League this weekend has been extended. After hearing feedback from Liverpool fans, Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson has made an agreement with Merseyside Police to lengthen the victory parade route from 3.5 miles to 5 miles. In the original plans, the route was intended to finish at the Liverpool Olympia, however, it will now end at the Green Lane roundabout, after it travels along Rocky Lane. If Klopp’s men can beat Real Madrid tomorrow night in Kiev, Liverpool City Council will formally invite Liverpool to hold the parade on the following day – Sunday 27thMay, as per the request of the club. The parade is scheduled to start at midday and is expected to last a couple of hours. It will see the Liverpool team parade the Champions League trophy on an open top bus. The Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta event that is schedules in Liverpool will take place later than advertised on Sunday to accommodate the parade, but obviously only if Liverpool can beat Madrid.
