96 Remembered

12 April 2013

Royals and Reds come together

This Saturday, Reading Football Club and Liverpool Football Club will come together with our supporters to pay respects to the 96 victims of the Hillsborough tragedy.

A minute's silence will be held shortly before kick off, with our owner Anton Zingarevich and Liverpool's Managing Director Ian Ayre laying a floral tribute to the 96 in the centre circle.

Anton and Ian will also be accompanied onto the Madejski Stadium pitch by a supporter from each team, as Royals and Reds come together to remember those who tragically lost their lives that day. Both sets of players will wear black armbands. The floral tribute will then travel to Merseyside and form part of Monday's Hillsborough Memorial Service at Anfield.

Supporters may like to note that both the home and away turnstiles will not be in operation for 60 seconds, during the minute's silence, but will reopen immediately afterwards, so please take your seat as early as possible.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Liverpool Football Club, the Premier League and this weekend's match officials for their help in arranging Saturday's tribute.
