Leicester have announced they will hold their Premier League title parade on Monday, May 16.

The Foxes will travel on an open-top bus through the city before finishing at Victoria Park, where the squad will take to a stage in front of fans.

Leicester beat odds of 5,000-1 to clinch their first top-flight title in their 132-year history this week and will be presented with the trophy following Saturday's final home game of the season against Everton.

The parade will be played out across big screens in Victoria Park, with a helicopter following the squad as they make their way through the city.

The park will open at 3pm with a family-friendly activity zone while big screens will start showing the highlights of the Foxes' title-winning season at 4.30pm.

Claudio Ranieri's squad will start their bus tour in Jubilee Square in the city before making its way through Leicester and finishing at Victoria Park an hour later.

The team will be on stage at around 7pm for an hour before the park closes at 9pm. There will be no activities taking place at the King Power Stadium.

Opera singer Andrea Bocelli will perform at the stadium on Saturday before Leicester's game against Everton while the club are giving free pizza and beers to fans.

Leicester won the title on Monday after Tottenham drew 2-2 at Chelsea, sparking week-long celebrations, and manager Ranieri has thanked the club's fans.

He said: "It is difficult to give a message to these fantastic people. They dream, I say 'dilly-ding, dilly-dong', and they wake up and it is a reality.

"I say 'thank you' because everywhere I hear them."
