England’s national football team manager Roy Hodgson plans to step away from watching Premier League football this coming weekend to honor victims of the Bradford City fire.
56 people died in a fire at Valley Parade in 1985, and the 30th anniversary of this incident is approaching.
Hodgson will visit Bradford City, who will be playing their final home game of the season against Barnsley close to the 30th anniversary of the fire.
The England manager will join Football Association chairman Greg Dyke in paying respects to the victims.
The FA has announced its plans for every match to have a moment of silence beforehand if it has been designated by the FA.
However, this match has not been scheduled in time for the actual anniversary of the fire, which occurred on May 11.
There will be a memorial service held on that day though, and Dyke will attend the service along with other FA officials.
