After the suspension of Date 7 in honor of Queen Elizabeth ll, football in England, and in the British Isles, will return this weekend with different tributes in honor of the recently deceased Queen.

First of all, all players in all divisions must wear a black armband and minutes of silence will be held on the different courts in the United Kingdom, mainly in England and Scotland. In addition, the anthem “God save the King” should be sung with the flags at half-staff.

As for the Premier League in particular, the organization is looking for the ideal dates to accommodate the postponed matches of Date 7. This is becoming a difficulty thanks to the Qatar 2022 World Cup that will be played between the months of November and December of the present year.

By Date 8, only 7 of the usual 10 games will be played since the police operation around the Queen’s funeral requires the presence of almost all police officers in the country. The 3 games postponed from Matchday 8 are: Chelsea vs Liverpool, Manchester United vs Leeds and Brighton & Hove Albion vs Crystal Palace. As for the match to be played in London, Tottenham vs Leicester, there will be special measures for fans who go to the stadium.
