Bromley FC is encouraging fans to celebrate their historic promotion victory with an open-top bus procession through Bromley Town Centre.

On Sunday, May 5, the tense encounter ended in a 2-2 draw after extra time, but Bromley FC won 4-3 on penalties, securing their well-deserved promotion to League Two in the English Football League for next season.

On Saturday, May 11, the open-top bus will begin its run at Bromley FC’s grounds on Hayes Lane.

It will then proceed down Hayes Road, Westmoreland Road, High Street, past Bromley South Station, and terminate at the Elmfield Road entrance to The Glades.

The team is anticipated to gather at The Glades in the town centre around lunchtime, with the celebrations ending around 1.30pm.

After that, the players will head to Hayes Lane Stadium, where fans will gather at Broomfields to continue the festivities till late.

A representative for Bromley FC stated, “It is an amazing occasion for the club, and we have been astounded by the support we have received throughout the season, particularly Sunday’s success 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.”
