EFL confirm Championship, League One and League Two to return from tomorrow after postponement following Queen’s death
THE EFL have confirmed that its fixture schedule will resume from tomorrow following the death of The Queen.
The Queen died peacefully aged 96 on Thursday – marking an end to her historic reign and making her son, Charles, King.
The Premier League and EFL postponed all matches last weekend as Scotland followed suit along with a host of other sporting events to pay tribute to Her Majesty.
Now the EFL have announced that its midweek fixture list will go ahead as planned.
A statement read: “The EFL fixture programme will return as scheduled from Tuesday 13 September, with tributes to be paid to Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II at grounds around the country.
“A minute’s silence will be held before matches, with black armbands to be worn by participants, flags to be flown at half-mast and the National Anthem to be played in stadiums.
“With a national policing plan now in operation, the League and Clubs will continue to work with forces in respect of any challenges that may emerge regarding policing of specific fixtures.
“Consideration to individual circumstances will be made on a case-by-case basis, in line with standard match Safety Advisory Group (SAG) protocols.”
