25 years – Remembering the victims of the Bradford City fire.

25 years ago today, Saturday May 11th 1985, 56 people died in a fire at a football match in Bradford.

On what started as a day of celebration for newly-promoted Bradford City, joy turned to tragedy as the main stand caught fire at Valley Parade.

In memory of the victims, and to their families and the survivors, we understand your pain and you are in our thoughts and prayers.

You’ll Never Walk Alone.

In Memoriam.
