Background: Following the Hillsborough disaster in 1989, Lord Justice Taylor produced a report which listed 76 recommendations, to help improve the safety of stadia. This report focused on how effective the report was at the time of publishing, and whether the report is still relevant to stadia today. Aim: The aim of this investigation was to identify the key issues from the Taylor Report and looked at; a) How they effective that the recommendations were at the time of publication. b) The relevance of the recommendations today. Research Methods and Results: In order to complete this aim, a literature review was undertaken as well as primary research through the form of structured interviews, and a brief questionnaire. Through this research it was discovered that the recommendations were effective at the time the report was published, and that clubs found it financially difficult to fund the changes that had to be made, such as making stadia all seated - which has been proven to be the most important recommendation. Conclusion: Through the research it has been concluded that although the report is still relevant today, it may need to be reviewed to ensure that it is still up to date, and the report could now be applied to other events - not just football, where there are health and safety issues. From the research it has also been discovered that it now may be necessary to apply the Taylor report to stadia across Europe and the then to worldwide stadia to ensure that all stadia are up to a high level of health and safety.
