At Hillsborough under the chairmanship from 1990 of Sir Dave Richards, the club company, Sheffield Wednesday Football Club Plc, was renamed Sheffield Wednesday Plc and became the holding company.

Wednesday’s then safety officer, Graham Mackrell, has been convicted over the disaster but the club, to the families’ despair, is immune to prosecution ereaved Hillsborough families’ last sight of accountability from the football establishment for the deaths of 96 people at an FA Cup semi-final was the then Sheffield Wednesday secretary and safety officer, Graham Mackrell, driving away in a taxi from Preston crown court on Monday having been fined £6,500.

The current club company, Sheffield Wednesday Football Club Ltd, which certainly exists at Hillsborough where the club has played without interruption, “is a different company”, Hemming said.

Sheffield Wednesday still exists, playing at Hillsborough, and I believe the club should have been charged.” Mackrell’s trial heard of failings at Hillsborough that included the tunnel to the central terrace pens being too steep, an unsafe layout of crush barriers in the pens, the too few turnstiles and inadequate signs to direct people to the side pens.

Sue Hemming, responsible for the Hillsborough prosecutions at the CPS, explained in June 2017 that charges could not be brought because the club company in 1989, Sheffield Wednesday Football Club plc, now exists “only on paper”.

When Milan Mandaric bought the club in 2010, he took over Sheffield Wednesday Football Club Ltd, the subsidiary company, for £1, from Sheffield Wednesday plc.

When the Hillsborough Independent Panel began its review of documentation in 2009, the current Sheffield Wednesday Football Club Ltd had all the files and initiated the process of disclosing them.
