This Thursday, September 8, Queen Elizabeth II left us. A disappearance that logically marks the spirit of the British. In England, no Premier League matches will take place this weekend.
The end of an era … Thursday, September 8, Elizabeth II said a final goodbye to the British people. The disappearance of the 96-year-old Queen leaves a great void in the hearts of the United Kingdom. It must be said that Elizabeth reigned since February 6, 1952. In recent hours, we therefore mourn logically his disappearance on the other side of the Channel, while the new king, his son Charles III was enthroned. The world of football, bereaved, has also decided to postpone the 7th day of the Premier League, which was to start this Saturday. On the side of the English clubs, we indeed prefer to withdraw in homage to the deceased Queen. But to deal with this unplanned postponement, the clubs are organizing to adapt to possible losses.
The Premier League mobilizes for the Queen
As a mark of respect to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, this weekend’s Premier League match round will be postponed.

As reported by DailyMail, Liverpool and Arsenal are among the clubs that have already donated all the food provided for their match to charity for free. Manchester City will normally pay him the staff who were to hold the match against Tottenham. Because this weekend, all of England football is organizing to show solidarity, while the English Federation had left the choice to the clubs to postpone or not the day of the championship. It remains to be seen when this 7th day of the Premier League will be rescheduled, while the calendar is insane for the clubs until the World Cup in Qatar. In any case, there is no doubt that this outpouring of solidarity from the English clubs will command the respect of the British people, who will now have to compose without their iconic Queen.
