In a statement, the Premier League clubs said: “At a meeting this morning, Premier League clubs paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. As a mark of respect and to honor her extraordinary life and contribution to the nation, this weekend’s Premier League match round will be postponed, including Monday evening’s match.
Throughout the appropriate time,
“further updates on Premier League fixtures during the period of grief will be issued.”
The Premier League’s chief executive, Richard Masters, said:
“We and our clubs would like to express our gratitude for Her Majesty’s long and steadfast service to our nation. She has been an inspiration and, as our longest-serving monarch, has left behind a very remarkable legacy.
“This is an incredibly sad time for the country, but also for the millions of people who admired her around the world, and we join them in grieving her passing.”
The EFL has also rescheduled its games. “Further to negotiations on Friday morning, it has been decided that all EFL matches from September 9 to September 10 will be postponed as a gesture of respect by the National Sport to the passing of HRH Queen Elizabeth II,” they stated.
Only a short time after the Premier League and EFL, the National League also postponed its games.
