The Munich58 Story

Through our supporters memorial events, educational resources, website and social channels, Munich58 ensures the memory of The Busby Babes endures forever.

It was back in 2001 that Mike Thomas and Elaine Giles launched, a website that has subsequently become the definitive source of news, articles, videos and exclusive photographs related to the crash, as well as information about those who lost their lives and those whose lives were changed forever.

The website’s digital tribute book currently contains over 2,000 emotional entries from football fans around the world.

In addition to running the website, Elaine and Mike, who are both public speakers, deliver talks about The Busby Babes, the crash and the aftermath of Munich to schools and groups as well as organising two supporter-led memorial events each year at Old Trafford.



Each February we meet up at Old Trafford to remember those who died Learn more
