After the crush in 1981, Hillsborough was not chosen to host an FA Cup semi-final for six years until 1987. A Leeds fan described disorganisation at the turnstiles and no steward or police direction inside the stadium, resulting in the crowd in one enclosure becoming so compressed he was at times unable to raise and clap his hands.

One supporter wrote to the Football Association and Minister for Sport complaining, "The whole area was packed solid to the point where it was impossible to move and where I, and others around me, felt considerable concern for personal safety".The resulting 96 fatalities and 766 injuries makes this the worst disaster in British sporting history.The crush occurred in the two standing-only central pens in the Leppings Lane stand, allocated to Liverpool supporters.Reporting in 2012, it confirmed Taylor's 1990 criticisms, while also revealing new details about the extent of police efforts to shift blame onto fans, the role of other emergency services, and the error of the first coroner's inquest.The panel's report resulted in the previous findings of accidental death being quashed, and the creating of a new coroner's inquest.A report by Eastwood & Partners for a safety certificate for the stadium in 1978 concluded that although it failed to meet the recommendations of the Green Guide, a guide to safety at sports grounds, the consequences were minor.
