EFL, Premier League and Irish FA have announced that all the matches of this week are postponed after the death of Queen Elizabeth II on thursday.
All the federations have agreed to reschedule the matches of this week after the sad news of thursday. Premier League, Sky bet Championship and other EFL Competitions will not be played this week to honour the figure of the Queen and all the contribution she had in British life, including sports. Of Course SPFL, SWPL and the other Scottish Leagues will not play their matches as well. Irish FA has also decided to postphone the matches of this week and decide a new period for this weekend activity.
Rangers are considering to sed a request to UEFA to not play the match against Napoli, but this request hardly will be accomplished because the calendar leaves no space for the match to take place in another date. So Manchester United and West Ham United will play their matches in the midweek as well. Uefa has expressed the condolences to the British monarchy and the matches in its competions will start with a minute of silence.
Other sports will mourn the Queen’s death. England plays the cricket test with South Africa. England Cricket Board has announced that the cricket matches will be played, but of course honouring the figure of the Queen and respecting all state procedures following the 10 day mourning ceremony that will be held. Formula 1, US Open, Boxing, Rugby, Cycling and Athletics have shown respect following the sad news and will keep a minute of silence before starting the events, with banners and post to support the Britain and the Royal family.
