THOUSANDS of Albion fans will get the chance to cheer their Premier League-bound heroes in an end-of-season victory parade.
The club and Brighton and Hove City Council have confirmed that an open-top bus tour along the city seafront will take place on Sunday May 14.
Cllr Warren Morgan, council leader and life-long Albion fan, has invited the club’s players, coaching staff, chairman and board of directors to a civic reception and bus parade to mark promotion to the Premier League which was sealed with a 2-1 victory over Wigan on Monday.
The city council said the parade along the seafront is likely to start at around 5pm.
