Official Programme. 28 pages.



The official teamsheet.

The programme has been reproduced. It is almost impossible to identify the reproduction without having the original programme to compare it against. The reproduction is on slightly thicker and less glossy paper. The photographs – including the two squads – are darker and less defined. Because the paper is thinner on the original programme, the outline of advertisements can be seen clearly on the preceding page.

2) stadium plan from the back of a ticket. Liverpool supporters were in the terrace blocks X and Y. Juventus supporters were in blocks O and N at the other end of the stadium. Block Z, where the disaster occurred, was reserved for neutral supporters.
