Premier League set for 'mass postponements' after Queen Elizabeth II's death

2 mins read


Premier League fixtures this weekend are set to be postponed, according to reports, as the UK and Commonwealth enters an extended period of mourning following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Britain’s longest-serving monarch passed away at Balmoral at the age of 96 after reigning for 70 years.

Arsenal’s Europa League game against FC Zurich saw a minute’s silence held at half-time and Manchester United will also pay tribute before their clash with Real Sociedad in the Europa League.

But reports claim that all sport is set to be cancelled from tomorrow, meaning this weekend’s Premier League fixtures will not go ahead.

There is no official mandate from the Government to cancel sporting events, but it’s been indicated that most fixtures and events will be postponed.
