Club statement

18 October 2016


Both Sheffield Wednesday and Cardiff City will observe a minute’s silence and be wearing black armbands for tomorrow’s clash in the Welsh capital.

The tribute is a mark of respect to the victims of the Aberfan disaster as it approaches its 50th anniversary later this month.

The Aberfan disaster was a catastrophic collapse of a colliery spoil tip in the Welsh village of Aberfan, on 21 October 1966.

Both clubs will pay their respects to the 116 children and 28 adults who lost their lives and the families.
