All games between April 11-14 in the FA Cup, Premier League, Football League and Conference will begin seven minutes later than scheduled as a mark of respect to the 96 Liverpool supporters who died at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final.

Liverpool's game against Nottingham Forest that day was halted six minutes after kick-off as players became aware of the tragedy unfolding in Sheffield.

This season's FA Cup semi-finals take place at Wembley on the anniversary weekend.

Arsenal's tie with Wigan will now begin at 5.07pm on April 12, while Hull's game against Sheffield United will kick off at 4.07pm the following day.

A minute's silence will be observed before kick-off at all grounds.
