FilGoal | News | The FA: the resumption of the league matches and the continuation of coordination with the local authorities

The English Football Association announced that next weekend’s matches will be played as scheduled, but stressed that coordination with the local authorities will continue in this regard.

Football matches were postponed in various degrees last week after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The statement indicated that, initially, this will not be the case in the next round, but it did not categorically confirm that all matches will be held on time.

The statement indicated that no football matches will be held in any of the English football classes on Monday 19 September, which coincides with the Queen’s funeral.

The FA statement stressed that the decision to hold matches includes all categories and different grades, not just the Premier League.

The statement appealed to clubs and competitions to observe a minute’s silence before the matches in the spirit of Elizabeth II.

He also suggested that players wear black armbands during next week’s matches.

Several press reports had indicated difficulties in organizing English football matches due to the lack of sufficient security elements.

The match between Glasgow Rangers of Scotland and Napoli of Italy was postponed from Tuesday to Wednesday in the Champions League.

While the match between Arsenal and Eindhoven in the European League, which was scheduled to be held on Thursday, was postponed indefinitely.

And the English newspaper Mirror reported that the chances of holding the Chelsea-Liverpool match scheduled for Sunday are weak, due to the funeral of Queen Elizabeth the next day.
