Hillsborough tributes to be held
The Football Association has announced plans to pay tribute to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster by delaying kick-off times on the 25th anniversary of the tragedy.
Fixtures across the Premier League, FA Cup, Football League and Conference between April 11-14 will begin seven minutes later than their scheduled start times as a mark of respect to the 96 Liverpool supporters who lost their lives at the 1989 FA Cup semifinal, the FA announced in a statement.
Liverpool's match against Nottingham Forest on April 15 of that year was halted after six minutes due to the deadly crush in the Leppings Lane end of Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough stadium.
The semifinals of this season's FA Cup will take place at Wembley on the anniversary weekend. Arsenal will now kick-off against Wigan at 17:07 local time on April 12, while Hull City will kick-off against Sheffield United at 16:07 the following day.
A minute's silence will also be observed before kick-off at all grounds.
