Death of the Queen: Will the BVB game against Manchester City be postponed?

The death of Queen Elizabeth II also has far-reaching implications for football. The Premier League has decided not to play any games this weekend. But there is now a question mark behind the Champions League match between BVB and Manchester City.

The ball is resting in England this weekend, and other sports are also taking a break due to the death of the Queen.

"We and our clubs wish to pay tribute to Her Majesty's long and tireless service to our country," said Premier League boss Richard Masters. "As our longest-serving monarch, she has been an inspiration and leaves an incredible legacy after a lifetime of dedication," he added, underscoring the esteem the league held for the Queen and continues to hold after her death.

At the moment it is not quite clear how English sport will continue after this weekend. Accordingly, the second Champions League group match day could also be affected. Among other things, Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund will meet next Wednesday. According to the Ruhr Nachrichten, the two teams face two different scenarios. One of them would mean that the game would not take place at the Skyblues stadium as planned, but outside of Great Britain. The other scenario would see the game being postponed, which would be problematic in the tightly scheduled calendar. Among other things, the World Cup is also imminent, which further increases the deadline pressure. Accordingly, a local transfer should also be the more likely option. According to Ruhr Nachrichten, Borussia have not yet received any signal that the date or venue could change. Accordingly, they are currently planning to travel to Manchester at the beginning of the week.
