The patch can be simply ironed on to existing shirts and costs just £2.

Liverpool players will wear the patch for the home match against Manchester City on April 13th – two days before the anniversary itself – and all home matches thereafter. It will also be worn in the Celebration of the 96 match at Anfield on Easter Monday and by LFC Ladies on their opening match of the season.

Margaret Aspinall, chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group (HFSG), commented: “The 25th anniversary of Hillsborough is an important milestone for the families.

“The ‘Patch for the 96’ is a special way for all football fans from across the world to come together in support and is a commemorative sign of unity.”
