Nineteen years ago on this very date, 25,000 Liverpool fans traveled to Sheffield for the FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest. In one of the darkest days in football, 96 Liverpool fans died at Hillsborough.
Please feel free to pay tribute to those lost souls in a minute’s silence at 3:06pm GMT/10:06am ET.
To learn more about that fateful day and how you can help the cause, listen to EPL Talk’s interview with a representative from the Hillsborough Justice Campaign — which was recorded November, 2007.
You can also watch the following videos from Match of The Day, which were aired on the day that the tragedy occurred, April 15, 1989. Note that the quality of the videos is poor, but it’s one of the few videos that features footage of what happened.
Editor’s note: Unfortunately the BBC have removed the videos from YouTube. There is a video, though, which shows the events from the day (without audio) which can be viewed here.
