County are back!
After the Club secured the National League title this afternoon, and with it promotion back to the Football League after an 11 year absence, we are delighted to announce plans for an open-top bus parade to take place tomorrow afternoon to celebrate what has been an unforgettable season.
The event will give fans and players alike the opportunity to celebrate together the Club’s historic promotion, with the trophy to be paraded through the streets of Stockport before returning to Edgeley Park.
The players and management team will first attend a private civic ceremony at Stockport Town Hall, to commemorate their incredible success this year, before all boarding our open-top bus which is set to start its route at 4.30pm.
The bus will then make its way down Greek Street and onto Mercian Way before turning onto Hardcastle Road and back to our beloved Edgeley Park for around 4.50pm, and we welcome all fans to line the streets to celebrate our promotion heroes.
We would then like to invite supporters to join us inside the ground one last time this season for a trophy presentation. This is expected to start at 5.45pm, once all supporters are safely inside the ground, as one by one players and staff are invited out to lift the trophy in front of the Cheadle End.
The players will also at this point be presented with the 2021/22 end of season awards, before leaving the pitch at approximately 7pm.
In order for us to monitor numbers inside Edgeley Park on the day, we are asking supporters to purchase tickets for the presentation event, for a nominal fee of £1 – with all proceeds going towards the County Community Trust. Click here to purchase yours today.
Please note the ticket office will not be taking bookings over the phone, tickets can only be purchased online or from the ticket office from 12pm tomorrow.
We’ll be selling tickets in the Cheadle End first, once sold out, tickets in the Together then Railway will be available to buy. Please note, The Danny Bergara stand will not be open for general sale.
Turnstiles will be open from 4:30pm, kiosks will only be selling drinks on the day, there will be no food offerings.
We can’t wait to celebrate this season of success with you tomorrow, and hope you can all make it down to Edgeley Park to be part of this special and emotional day.
