The Officials of the English Premier League are in discussions with the British government to postpone this weekend’s football games following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen of England.
Almost all of Friday’s sporting activities have already been called off on Thursday night as a mark of respect, including day two of England’s Test match against South Africa, golf’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, and all racing, the Queen’s favourite sport.
Friday’s EFL fixtures; Burnley v Norwich and Tranmere v Stockport have also been postponed.
The rest of the football games are likely to follow the lead set by the Premier League.
There are no fixtures scheduled for the date of the funeral on September 19 as that is the start of the international break.
