Remembering the 96

14 April 2020

This Wednesday, 15 April, marks the 31st anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster in which 96 men, women and children lost their lives attending the FA Cup semi final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.

Given the current COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent government guidelines, the annual memorial service held at the club will sadly not take place this year.

However, anyone wishing to lay flowers or pay their respects at the memorial site adjacent to the South Stand bridge on Parkside Road is more than welcome to do so, with the guidelines in mind.

Everyone at Sheffield Wednesday FC, from chairman Dejphon Chansiri, manager Garry Monk, the players, supporters and every staff member, would like to express ongoing sympathies to the families and friends of the 96 and the wider Liverpool community affected so deeply by the events of 1989.
