The bridge is down.
The United Kingdom, old British colonies, and indeed the whole world were thrown into a state of mourning with the passing of Queen Elizabeth on the 8th of September, 2022 at 4:30 pm.
Her death signified the end of an era in which she had served as the longest-ringing monarch in British history, a record of 70 years and 7 months.
Following the news of her death, this weekend’s sporting events have been canceled. The decision to postpone all matches from Friday through Monday was taken after a Premier League shareholder’s meeting on Friday.
Six Premier League games were scheduled for Saturday, three games were set to take place on Sunday and one on Monday evening, but those games have now been called off.
The affected games are:
Chelsea vs. Fulham
Brighton vs. Bournemouth
Brentford vs. Southampton
Wolves vs. Liverpool
Aston Villa vs. Leicester
Manchester City vs. Tottenham
Everton vs. Arsenal
West Ham vs. Newcastle
Crystal Palace vs Manchester United
Nottingham Forest vs. Leeds
The Premier League went on to confirm that further updates regarding fixtures during the period of mourning will be provided in due course.
