In the event of AFC Bournemouth being crowned npower League 1 champions on Saturday, they will be presented with the trophy at the Goldsands Stadium on Sunday ahead of their open top bus parade to celebrate promotion to the npower Championship.

The presentation will commence at 12pm, entry to the Goldsands Stadium will be free of charge and the main stand will open at 11am.

Ordinarily, The Football League does not present trophies at away grounds unless a club makes a specific request for us to do so.

In this case, AFC Bournemouth did ask to The League to present the trophy on Saturday but after consultation with Tranmere Rovers and Merseyside Police it was decided not to grant the request.

Tranmere Rovers felt that they were not absolutely able to guarantee the safety of all players, match officials and supporters on the day.
