What will happen to the seventh round of the English Premier League after the death of Queen Elizabeth?

British press reports have indicated that the next seventh round of the English Premier League will be postponed to mourn the death of Queen Elizabeth II, who has passed away at the age of 96.

However, Manchester United’s Europa League match against Real Sociedad on Thursday was played as planned, despite British sport bracing for a complete halt after the Queen’s death.

While Arsenal, playing in the Europa League and Swiss Zurich at the time of the Queen’s death, observed a moment of silence on their return to the stadium at the start of the second half, and the London club won 2-1.

And Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper said talks were underway with the government over whether the Premier League matches scheduled for Saturday would take place and “an announcement to that effect would be made at the earliest opportunity.”

Probably today, Friday, the English Premier League will decide to postpone the matches of the next round, which were to be held on Saturday and Sunday.

Although the government does not have a formal mandate to cancel sporting events, as the decision rests with the individual governing bodies, most matches and events are expected to be postponed.

The Premier League has released an official statement on the death of Queen Elizabeth via its official Twitter account.

Meanwhile, the EFL, which is in charge of managing matches in the English Premier League, Championship and lower levels, has announced the postponement of Friday matches in the Premier League, mourning the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The association said that a decision on the remaining matches scheduled for this weekend will be made after reviewing the official mourning rules.
