The Premier League and EFL have announced all games across English football’s top-four tiers will be postponed this weekend as changes are made to scheduled sport following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

At a meeting on Friday morning, Premier League clubs paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“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.”

Richard Masters, Premier League Chief Executive, said:

“We and our clubs would like to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s long and unwavering service to our country.”

“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.”

Further updates regarding Premier League fixtures during the period of mourning will be provided in due course.
