Mandela tribute

6 December 2013


The Football League has asked its clubs to hold a minute’s applause ahead of matches this weekend to celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela, who died yesterday at the age of 95.


Consequently, Sheffield Wednesday are making supporters aware of this tribute ahead of the Sky Bet Championship game against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.


Football League chief executive Shaun Harvey, said: “Nelson Mandela was an inspiration to millions and his determination, courage and forgiveness marked him out as a truly great man.


“We are delighted to give clubs and their supporters the opportunity to pay their own tributes to Nelson Mandela and recognise his extraordinary legacy.”
