LFC marks 37th anniversary of Heysel Stadium disaster

Published 29th May 2022

Liverpool FC remembers the 39 football fans who lost their lives at Heysel Stadium in Belgium on this day 37 years ago.

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 at Anfield’s Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand on Sunday afternoon. The men’s team will observe a period of reflection at the AXA Training Centre to pay their respects following their return from Paris after the Champions League final. Flags across all club sites will be flown at half-mast throughout the day.

Sir Kenny Dalglish also laid a wreath at Stade de France ahead of kick-off in the Champions League final on Saturday evening.

Billy Hogan, LFC CEO, said: “We come together as a club to pay our respects to the 39 people 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.”
