The tribute will take place in all games in the Premier League, Football League, Football Conference and FA Cup. There will be a minute's silence before each match kicks off.

It has been organised as "a mark of respect and remembrance" for the 96 people who lost their lives in the disaster on April 15, 1989.

That match, the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, was ended six minutes after kick-off, at 3:06pm.
