Stagecoach East Midlands provide celebration bus for Lincoln City FC parade

02 May 2017

To celebrate the promotion of local football team Lincoln City FC, Stagecoach East Midlands will be providing the team with the Lincoln City Tour Bus to help with their celebrations.

The open top bus will take the players, managers and staff on a parade through the city allowing fans to celebrate with their team on their promotion to the Football League. 
Having spent a number of years in the non-league, the team, secured a return to the Football League with a 2-1 win against Macclesfield Town on Saturday. 
To mark the occasion the open-top bus parade will take place on Tuesday 2 May, giving people the chance to celebrate together.  

Michelle Hargreaves, Managing Director at Stagecoach East Midlands, said: “Stagecoach East Midlands would like to congratulate Lincoln City on this fantastic win, securing their return to the Football League. 
“We are delighted to lend an open-top bus for the parade on Tuesday. This will give the players a great platform and we hope that people from across Lincoln will come to watch the parade and celebrate with us and the team.” 

The celebrations will begin at 6:15pm with the bus picking up the players from the football ground on Sincil Bank. The open top bus will proceed to travel via South Park, arriving at South Park Roundabout and then via the High Street. The bus will stop regularly for photo opportunities when it joins the pedestrianised area at Tentercroft Street. It will then proceed up to the Guildhall where players and management will be greeted and congratulated by the Mayor of Lincoln, Cllr Yvonne Bodger and Leader of the city council, Cllr Ric Metcalfe.
