Liverpool Football Club today remembers the 39 football fans who lost their lives at Heysel Stadium in Belgium on this day 29 years ago.

As a mark of respect to those who died, club flags will be flown at half-mast all day, while a floral tribute was placed at the foot of the Heysel Memorial Plaque in the Centenary Stand at Anfield this morning.

The tragedy unfolded on May 29, 1985, at the European Cup final between Liverpool and Juventus, when what should have been one of the greatest nights in the club's history turned into a nightmare.

Instead of leaving Brussels having seen our team lift a fifth European Cup, Reds fans travelled back to England having witnessed the deaths of 39 football supporters - including 32 Italian fans of Juventus, four Belgians, two from France and one man from Northern Ireland - following the collapse of a wall.


At the placing of the floral tribute this morning, Andrew Parkinson, Liverpool's operations director, said: "Today is an important day in the calendar of Liverpool Football Club.

"It marks the 29th year since the tragedy at Heysel Stadium. It is a day when all of those connected with Liverpool Football Club pay their respects to those who lost their lives at the disaster at that stadium.

"Our thoughts go to all those that were impacted on that day."
