Clubs To Mark Bradford Fire Disaster Anniversary

22 April 2015

Minute's Silence Ahead of All Weekend Fixtures

All matches in the Sky Bet Football League taking place this weekend will be preceded by a minute’s silence to mark the 30th Anniversary of the Bradford Fire Disaster, in which 56 supporters lost their lives and hundreds more were injured.

The date coincides with Bradford City’s last home match of the season, when the club traditionally marks the anniversary of the disaster which occurred on 11 May 1985.

The Football League’s Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said: “This period of silence will give fans across the country the opportunity to remember the terrible events that occurred at Valley Parade back in 1985 and, in particular, the supporters of Bradford City and Lincoln City that lost their lives. The disaster’s impact continues to resonate within the Bradford community and within football and we must ensure that the lessons learned from it are never forgotten.”
