Late Kick-Off

11 April 2014

The Hillsborough 96 remembered

Saturday's Championship encounter between Millwall and Watford will kick-off at 3.07pm along with every other match in the four divisions.

Twenty five years ago, 96 Liverpool fans lost their lives during an FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough. The match was stopped at 3.06pm, and as a mark of respect, a minute's silence will be held up and down the country, with each game then kicking off at 3.07pm.

Following the Hillsborough disaster came the Taylor report which made recommendations about future ground safety, and Millwall's 'new' Den was the first stadium to be constructed following that report.

BBC1's regional football magazine show 'Late Kick-Off', broadcast on Monday evenings, will be filming at The Den on Saturday for a feature contrasting the old and new stadiums.

In addition, Millwall Lionesses, who are about to embark on their Women's Super League campaign later this month, will be out in force raising cash to help them compete at this exciting new level with some of the big hitters in the women's game like Arsenal and Liverpool.
