Leeds Kick-Off Change

31 March 2014

3:07PM Start

Blackpool’s game with Leeds United next month will kick-off at 3:07PM to mark the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

All matches across England on Saturday 12 April will kick-off seven minutes later, as a mark of respect for the supporters who lost their lives in 1989.

At 3:06PM a minute’s silence will take place at Elland Road, and other stadiums around the country.

Liverpool and Nottingham Forest’s FA Cup tie back in 1989 was ended six minutes in at Hillsborough, as the tragedy occurred.
