Extra stadium info – Hillsborough Stadium
The stadium was one of the 1966 FIFA World Cup venues. It has been the home of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club since 1899. In 1903, Sheffield Wednesday were crowned English football champions for the first time in their history. They drew an average attendance of 14,000 in 17 home games in that domestic league season. In 1989, the venue was the scene of the Hillsborough disaster, in which 96 Liverpool FC fans were crushed to death at an FA Cup match. This led to new safety rules for stadiums.
