Following the Queen’s death on Thursday, all the English football leagues have postponed all their games for this weekend as a mark of respect.

The Premier League has postponed all 10 of its match day seven fixtures for this weekend in England.

The decision came after Queen Elizabeth II’s passing on Thursday. With the country in a state of mourning, the Premier League met with all 20 clubs on Friday morning and agreed to postpone all round seven fixtures as a mark of respect.

The Championship, Women’s Super League, Nations League, FA Trophy, and grassroots football have all called off their weekend matches as well.

“We and our clubs would like to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s long and unwavering service to our country,” read a statement from Richard Masters, the Premier League’s Chief Executive.

“As our longest-serving monarch, she has been an inspiration and leaves behind an incredible legacy following a life of dedication.

“This is a tremendously sad time for not just the nation but also for the millions of people around the world who admired her, and we join together with all those in mourning her passing.”

The Premier League has said it will provide further updates on when the postponed games could be rescheduled in due course.
