Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed its plan to have an open-top bus victory parade on June 2nd should they defeat Liverpool in the Champions League final on June 1st.

A Culture Liverpool statement read: "The City of Liverpool will formally invite the club to hold a victory parade. A parade for a Champions League final victory would take place on Sunday 2 June."
Spurs have now joined their fellow finalists in producing a plan of what could happen if Mauricio Pochettino's team win the European Cup next month.
"The club is now able to confirm its plans for an open-top bus victory parade on Sunday 2 June if we are successful in the previous night's UEFA Champions League Final against Liverpool in Madrid," a statement read.
