The Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two have all been postponed, as well as the start of the new Women’s Super League season, and all non-League and grassroots fixtures.

The Scottish FA also announced that the SPFL, SWPL and Highland & Lowland Leagues have agreed that professional football matches will be postponed.

The news comes after Queen Elizabeth II’s passing on Thursday, with the country now in a state of national mourning.

In a statement, the Premier League said: “At a meeting this 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.”
