Liverpool FC will remember the 39 football fans who lost their lives at Heysel Stadium in Belgium this Sunday, 37 years to the day since the tragedy.

The disaster occurred before the European Cup final between Liverpool and Juventus on May 29, 1985, when events in Block Z of the stadium tragically led to the deaths of 39 people and left hundreds more injured. As a mark of respect to those who died, floral tributes will be placed beside the Heysel memorial plaque on the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. The men’s

team will observe a period of reflection at AXA training ground to pay their respects following their return from Paris after the UEFA Champions League final. Flags across all club sites will be flown at half-mast throughout the day.

Billy Hogan, CEO, Liverpool FC, said: “We come together today as a club to pay our respects to the 39 who lost their lives at Heysel and remember all those affected by this tragedy.

“Our Club has a rich history, which includes both times of joy and sorrow and it’s important that we respectfully remember and reflect on the past whilst also celebrating our successes in the present and future.”
