Category : News
Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund supporters have won the first FIFA Fan Award for their act of solidarity when signing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” to remember those that lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster.
During their Europa League quarter-final second leg in April 2016 “You’ll Never Walk Alone” was sung loud and proud by both the home and away ends at Anfield as an act of solidarity to remember those that lost their life at the 1989 FA cup semi-final.
Liverpool’s director of communications, Susan Black, said: “Thank you for the award. It’s great that supporters are being recognised at such a prestigious award.
The other two nominees were Iceland fans at Euro 2016, and supporters of Dutch club ADO Den Haag, who brought soft toys to children supporting rival team feyenoord.
