List of Premier League, Europa League and more matches postponed following Queen Elizabeth II’s death




Football in England came to a halt last weekend after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The Football Association has confirmed that the match, from the Premier League down to the grassroots, will be stopped as a sign of respect, and matches in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have also been postponed.

While some games have been allowed to resume this week, there have been other postponements in domestic and European competition ahead of the late monarch’s state funeral on Monday 19 September – an event that will require an unprecedented security and policing operation in London.

Many matches across divisions will need to be rescheduled in an already crowded calendar due to the Winter World Cup. Here are the games that have been canceled so far, with new dates yet to be confirmed.

When can the English Premier League matches be played?

The calendar is already crowded with the World Cup in Qatar – the Premier League has been suspended for six weeks in mid-November – has no space for a midweek rearrangement due to the spaces occupied by European competitions and the Carabao Cup.

The week of January 16th will be the earliest opportunity for games now postponed to be rescheduled.

With the last international break before the World Cup looming a week later, any Premier League club that suffers another delay to the next game will go four weeks without playing.
