Minute's applause for Mandela

6 December 2013

MK Dons will hold a minute’s applause prior to kick-off tomorrow as a mark of respect for the late Nelson Mandela.

The Football League has asked its clubs to hold a minute’s applause ahead of matches this weekend to celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela, who died yesterday at the age of 95.

Football League Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said: “Nelson Mandela was an inspiration to millions and his determination, courage and forgiveness marked him out as a truly great man.  We are delighted to give clubs and their supporters the opportunity to pay their own tributes to Nelson Mandela and recognise his extraordinary legacy.”

The minute’s applause will take place just before 3pm tomorrow afternoon, ahead of the Dons’ FA Cup with Budweiser Second Round tie with Dover Athletic.
