UCLF22: UEFA Champions League Final Independent Review
The UEFA Champions League Final Report (released in February 2023) confirmed that UEFA bears primary responsibility for the many failures that transpired on that devastating day.

The report is decisive in its findings that no blame could be attached to the Liverpool fans for the events that happened that day.
It instead finds that a primary factor in the event being a “near miss” rather than a stadium tragedy, was due to the capacity of the Liverpool supporters.
The report concludes that UEFA has still failed to fully acknowledge its responsibility for the horrific events that occurred that day.
Despite a brief apology, UEFA have done nothing to provide redress for the victims or to bring in reforms that will ensure such events never happen again.
