As expected this weekend’s Premier League games have been postponed.
An announcement was expected this morning on whether this weekend’s Premier League games will go ahead following the death of Queen Elizabeth.
It was released that it would be down to the league themselves to decide if the fixtures will go ahead, with the official government guidance stipulating:
“There is no obligation to cancel or postpone events and sporting fixtures, or close entertainment venues during the National Mourning period. This is at the discretion of individual organisations.“
It’s now been confirmed that games will be postponed across the UK on Saturday and Sunday. This may also have an effect on match week eight, which will mean that the league shall not return until the first of October due to international football taking place.
Tonight’s Championship game between Burnley and Norwich and the League Two clash between Tranmere and Stockport were the first to go after the passing was announced yesterday.
The death has had ramifications for all sports across the UK with Rugby, Cricket, Cycling, Golf, Boxing, and more having events all affected.
