Premier League Making Plans For Weekend’s Games To Be Called Off Following The Death Of Queen Elizabeth

Officials from the Premier League are in discussions with the UK Government about postponing this weekend’s football games while the country is in mourning over the passing of Her Majesty The Queen.
Premier League clubs anticipate a postponement of this weekend’s games after today’s announcement.

Almost all of Friday’s sporting activities have already been called off on Thursday night as a mark of respect, including day two of England’s Test match against South Africa, golf’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, and all racing, the Queen’s favourite sport.

Friday’s EFL fixtures; Burnley v Norwich and Tranmere v Stockport have also been postponed.
The rest of the football games are likely to follow the lead set by the Premier League.

There are no fixtures scheduled for the date of the funeral on September 19 as that is the start of the international break.
