Hillsborough Memorial Plans


Everton are planning to erect a permanent memorial at Goodison Park to the memory of the 96 supporters who died at Hillsborough in 1989.

The Club has been in discussions for a number of months with an Everton supporter whose brother was one of the fans tragically killed ahead of the FA Cup semi-final encounter between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.

Everton's Head of Media and Communications Mark Rowan said: "Plans at this moment are in the early stages. But we have a commitment to unveil a memorial to coincide with the 25th anniversary of that tragic day.

"Evertonians and the Club have always stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the families of the Hillsborough victims during their long fight for justice and we feel it is fitting that our home should have a permanent tribute to the 96."
