Hillsborough Stadium

Hillsborough Stadium is a football stadium in Sheffield, United Kingdom. It was inaugurated on 2 September 1899 and has been the home ground for Sheffield Wednesday Football Club ever since. Today, having a 39,812 capacity all-seater, it is the largest stadium in the city. The vast majority of the seats are covered and it is located in the Sheffield suburb of Owlerton, but takes its name from the parliamentary constituency in which it lies. It has two large separate stands and two large single tiered stands, all of which are covered. All four stands are of a similar size in terms of capacity, but the South stand is the largest. Only one corner of the ground is filled, between the West and North Stands and it is only used for visiting supporters when the West stand upper and lower tiers are full.
One of the worst sporting tragedies happened on 15 April 1989 when 96 Liverpool fans were crushed to death in an FA Cup semi-final in the infamous Hillsborough disaster. This prompted a series of safety improvements so the terraced stands were converted to all seated accommodation over the following four years, and the fences around the pitch were replaced with low safety-barricades to allow incursion onto the playing surface in case of emergency. Outside the ground, near the main entrance on Parkside Road, is a memorial monument to the 96 fans that lost their lives at Hillsborough in 1989, during the FA Cup Semi Final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.
After the renovation, it was a venue for Euro 1996.
Hilton Sheffield Hotel is a four star hotel that provides excellent accommodation at prices starting from 60 euro.
