The Dons showed their support for the Justice For The 96 campaigners on a dedicated page.
It read that the club would like to “take the opportunity of our first match against Liverpool in 15 years to declare our support for the campaigners for justice for the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.”
The statement also read: “Regardless of whatever rivalries there are between us, fans of all teams have far more in common than the loyalties that divide us.”
Fans took to Twitter to support the team’s decision.
