Sheffield Wednesday FC respond to the conclusions in the renewed inquests of the 96 Liverpool supporters who lost their lives attending the FA Cup semi final at Hillsborough on 15th April, 1989.
First and foremost, we recognise the tireless dedication of the families who have remained dignified throughout this process despite the enormously difficult evidence that had to be heard in detail over the course of the inquests.
Since the disaster, football has evolved immeasurably, with all stadia and associated safety procedures changing beyond recognition in the intervening years.
Both the ownership and leadership of Sheffield Wednesday has also changed in this time and we reiterate that the sincere condolences of the current chairman, board of directors and everyone at the club remain with the families of the 96 and our thoughts are with all those affected by the tragic events of 1989.
Sheffield Wednesday will be making no further comment at this time.
