Liverpool to Change Hillsborough 96 To 97 On Kits
Following the death of the 97th Hillsborough victim Andrew Devine, Liverpool have renamed a walkway outside Liverpool's Anfield Stadium.
The Hillsborough disaster was a fatal human crush during a football match at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, on 15 April 1989. It occurred during the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in the two standing-only central pens in the Leppings Lane stand allocated to Liverpool supporters.
Andrew Devine, 55, died in July 2021, 32 years after suffering life-changing injuries in the 1989 terrace crush. He became the 97th victim of the Hillsborough disaster.
