EPL postpone games in honor of Queen Elizabeth II passing

EPL postpone games in honor of Queen Elizabeth II passing

Due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the Premier League has postponed this weekend’s game and Monday’s match.

The EPL games have been postponed as a show of respect for Her Majesty, the Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away on Wednesday.

The remaining games scheduled for next week, including Saturday and Monday’s game, will still take place until further notice.

The death of Queen Elizabeth II is being mourned in Britain and across the world.

96 years was the longest reign of a British monarch.

The Queen is the second-longest reigning monarch in history, having ruled the United Kingdom for 70 years.

Born on April 21, 1926, the Queen is 96 years old. She ascended the throne in February 1952.

The English top flight took the decision despite guidance from the British government that cancelling sporting events was not compulsory during a period of national mourning.

“At a meeting this morning, Premier League clubs paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” the Premier League said in a statement.

“To honour her extraordinary life and contribution to the nation, and as a mark of respect, this weekend’s Premier League match round will be postponed, including Monday evening’s game.”

All matches in the English Football League and Women’s Super League have also been postponed.

In a show of respect, several athletic events that were due to take place in Britain on Friday have been canceled, including a Test match of cricket and the PGA Championship of Europe.

Over the weekend, those sports might resume.

The date of the state funeral has not yet been made public, therefore sporting officials have been urged to avoid any conflicts.

“There is no obligation to cancel or postpone events and sporting fixtures, or close entertainment venues during the national mourning period,” the government said in a guidance statement.

“This is at the discretion of individual organisations. As a mark of respect, organisations might wish to consider cancelling or postponing events or closing venues on the day of the state funeral.”

Pre-game tributes were held before Thursday’s games between West Ham and FCSB in the Europa Conference League at the London Stadium and Manchester United’s Europa League match against Real Sociedad at Old Trafford.

In order to extend the cancellations into a third day, the British Horseracing Authority announced that there will be no races on Saturday.

King’s Lynn, the only royally owned horse entered for this weekend’s races, won’t be racing at the Curragh on Sunday.

The St Leger, one of Britain’s five Classic races, will be on the program on Sunday. The queen won it in 1977 with her filly Dunfermline.
