33 years on - Never forgotten

Published 14th April 2022

Liverpool Football Club remembers the 97 supporters who died in the Hillsborough tragedy, on the 33rd anniversary of the disaster.

As a result of the events that unfolded on April 15, 1989, at the FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest, 97 children, women and men lost their lives.

In the past year, 96 sadly became 97 following the passing of lifelong Reds fan Andrew Stanley Devine, who died in July 2021 as a result of the life-changing injuries he sustained at Hillsborough.

For more than three decades, the bereaved families and survivors of the tragedy have demonstrated remarkable courage, dignity and resilience in search of truth and justice.

In April 2016, an inquest jury concluded that each of the Hillsborough victims had been unlawfully killed and that no role was played by the supporters in causing the disaster.

Our thoughts today, as always, are with all those affected by the tragedy at Hillsborough and the 97 fans who will never be forgotten.
