Death of the Queen: Premier League matchday before cancellation

Queen Elizabeth II passed away on Thursday at the age of 96. There is sadness in Britain and the world. Also in the Premier League and with the English Football Association FA. Public life on the island will be massively reduced in the coming days. Probably also in professional sports.

According to consistent media reports from England, it is very likely that the Premier League games will be canceled at the weekend. Accordingly, the league will negotiate with the 'Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport' about a postponement of the match day. A final decision is expected in the near future.

After the death of the Queen, who had reigned for 70 years, official mourning is to take place for ten days. Sports operations could therefore be stopped completely, which would also affect rugby and cricket matches in addition to football.

"Our thoughts and condolences go out to the Royal Family and all those around the world who are mourning the loss of Her Majesty," the Premier League said in a statement Thursday night.

Manchester United's Europa League game against Real Sociedad went ahead as planned in the evening. Before kick-off there was a minute's silence at Old Trafford, with the flags flying at half-mast.
