Following Bromley FC’s incredible promotion final victory at Wembley, fans are being invited to join for their open-top bus parade in Bromley Town Centre on Saturday, 11 May.

Residents and fans will come together on Saturday as the team are expected to arrive at midday at The Glades in the town centre, travelling from their ground in Hayes Lane where they will depart around 11:50am. The club’s historic win means they will enter the English Football League for the first time in their history next season.

A spokesperson at Bromley FC said: “It is an incredible time for the club and we have been overwhelmed by the support we have received throughout the whole season, including Sunday’s win at Wembley. It is so great to have this opportunity to bring these celebrations back to Bromley and we thank everyone all those who have supported us over the years leading to this remarkable time in the club’s history.”

Leader of the council, Councillor Colin Smith said: “This has been a seismic achievement for the club and an unforgettable experience for everybody who attended the match which will forever live in our memories."

“I know that many residents will be eager to take this opportunity to share in the club’s celebrations and salute the team for their amazing victory."

“To that end, I would warmly invite as many people as possible, whether you are football fans or not, to come along on Saturday, soak in the atmosphere and show your support as well."

“Bromley FC continues to go from strength to strength and we look forward to seeing their success grow further over the coming seasons.”

Sarah Goldsmith, Assistant Centre Director from The Glades said: "Huge congratulations to everyone at Bromley FC. We are delighted to help the team celebrate on Saturday at The Glades and give their fans the chance to show their appreciation for the club. We are excited to be a sponsor of Bromley FC Community Trust and we are happy to be part of this key moment in the club's history. We are exceptionally proud of what they have achieved."

The open-top bus will begin at the Bromley FC grounds on Hayes Lane, then leave via Hayes Road, turn right onto Westmoreland Road, before travelling up the High Street past Bromley South Station and finishing at the Elmfield Road entrance to The Glades. 

The celebratory event at The Glades will end around 1:30pm and following this the team will return to Hayes Lane Stadium where supporters are joining the team back in Broomfields to celebrate until late.
