ARSENAL AND HULL HONOUR THE 56 DURING F.A CUP FINAL

18 May 2014

Supporters of Arsenal and Hull City united during this Saturday's F.A Cup with Budweiser Cup Final at Wembley Stadium to remember the 56 victims of the Valley Parade fire disaster.

Although no official mark of remembrance was scheduled for the final, fans of both Hull and Arsenal held a minute's applause in the 56th minute after interest in the idea grew rapidly in recent days across social media.

Last Sunday saw the city of Bradford and Lincoln join together to mark the 29th anniversary of the disaster and to remember the 54 Bradford fans and 2 Lincoln fans who tragically lost their lives in the fire.

The football club would like to thank the Arsenal and Hull fans who took part in the applause at Wembley on Saturday for their kind show of support.
