We Remember The 96

12 April 2014

Kick off today is at 3.07 after one-minute silence to remember the victims of Hillsborough

As a mark of respect and remembrance for those who lost their lives as a result of the Hillsborough stadium disaster in April 1989, all Premier League, Football League, Football Conference and FA Cup matches taking place this weekend will kick-off seven minutes later than originally scheduled.

 

The match at which the disaster took place, the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on 15 April 1989, was ended six minutes after kick-off, at 3:06pm.

 

In the Premier League, Football League, and Football Conference, matches due to kick-off at 3pm on Saturday 12 April will now kick off at 3:07pm, with the minute before kick-off (3:06pm to 3:07pm) seeing a period of silence observed at all stadia.

 


Fixtures kicking-off at other times on Saturday, Sunday and Monday 14 April will observe the same etiquette with matches starting seven minutes later than originally scheduled.
