Hillsborough Memorial Service Screening

The Hillsborough memorial service will be screened at Goodison.

Hillsborough Memorial Service Screening

Everton will open the doors of Goodison Park to screen the memorial service to mark the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.  

The Park End stand will be open on the afternoon of 15 April so that the Club and Everton fans can pay their respects to the 96 Liverpool fans who tragically lost their lives in 1989.

In a display of continued support for the Hillsborough Family Support Group, Chairman Bill Kenwright will be in attendance at Goodison Park, along with the first-team squad, to watch the memorial service live from Anfield. Roberto Martinez will be among those speaking at Anfield.

Mr Kenwright said: "Our city is home to almost half a million people known around the world for their compassion, humour and love of the great game. We are brought together by two much admired, world famous football clubs who have stood shoulder to shoulder since the unimaginable tragedy, at Hillsborough, some 25 years ago.

"Everton will continue to provide support whenever we can to the remarkable Hillsborough Familiy Support Group. We are proud of them, and for them. We also know that the compassion and fraternity that transcends our City would have been there, unswerving and unconditional, if the balls had simply come out of the bag differently, prior to that fateful day."

After the screening, Everton will hold a short memorial of their own after which a group of local school children will lead a procession from Goodison Park to Anfield, holding 96 linked football scarves to represent the unity of Everton and Liverpool since the disaster in 1989.  

To attend the live screening, supporters will require a ticket and they are now available from the Club's tickets outlets, including the Park End box office, Everton Two, Everton One and the Ticket Quarter in Queen Square. Please call 0871 663 1878* for more information.

Seating will be unreserved and is limited to the Park End only. Limited car parking spaces will be available in the Park End and at Gwladys Street School.

Last month, Everton announced that the Club would erect a memorial plaque to pay tribute to the 96 fans who lost their lives at Hillsborough.

Everton will also hold a period of remembrance ahead of the Premier League game against Crystal Palace to remember the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.
