FA Cup final fans in Bradford City fire tribute

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: The FA Cup final will feature a minute's applause as a tribute to the Bradford City fire victims The FA Cup final will feature a minute's applause as a tribute to the Bradford City fire victims

Fans from both FA Cup finalists will pay tribute to the Valley Parade fire victims at Wembley on Saturday.

Supporters from Arsenal and Hull will join together after 56 minutes to remember those who lost their lives in the tragedy 29 years ago. The anniversary was marked last Sunday.

The minute’s applause has been planned through social media and is backed by both clubs.

Former City striker Jon Hawley, who played for both Hull and Arsenal, helped to rescue fans on that fateful day.

“Occasions like the Bradford fire really put football in perspective,” he said.

“I think it is fantastic of both sets of supporters to honour the memory of the 56 fans at the FA Cup final.”
