Victory parade for Oxford United on Tuesday night

The open top bus parade route

Oxford United will hold an open top bus parade across the city tomorrow evening.

Fans be able to cheer on their newly-promoted team tomorrow at 5pm on Tuesday (10th May).

The bus will start the parade from Broad Street and finish at Oxford Town Hall around 5.30. There will be rolling d closures on the rest of the parade route through the city centre.

Oxford United sealed promotion to Sky Bet League One after beating Wycombe Wanderers 3-0 at the Kassam Stadium.
