PREMIER League clubs are set to learn if this weekend’s scheduled fixtures will go ahead this morning, following a DCMS call and league meeting.

While the country mourns the loss of Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II, yesterday, the schedule of all sports could be cut for the next few days.

Friday’s EFL games have already been postponed, with an EFL statement confirming a decision regarding Saturday fixtures will be made this morning.

“A determination regarding the remainder of this weekend’s scheduled fixtures will be made following a review of the official mourning guidance, in addition to further consultation with DCMS and other sports on Friday morning,” the statement reads.

The Daily Mail report that the DCMS will give guidance to professional sporting bodies at 9:30AM, while the Premier League will then meet at 11AM to discuss their steps.

They add the government guidance is unlikely to be 100 per cent definitive and the Premier League will have to make their own decisions.

The death of Elizabeth II, 96, who was the nation’s longest-reigning monarch and served as head of state for more than 70 years, was announced by Buckingham Palace on Thursday.

Sports stars and governing bodies paid tribute to The Queen, and event organisers are now considering the most appropriate and respectful course of action regarding competitions scheduled for the weekend.

The England and Wales Cricket Board announced that Friday’s play in the men’s third Test between England and South Africa at The Oval would not take place.

Play was suspended on the first day of the PGA Championship golf at Wentworth when news of The Queen’s death was announced, and the European Tour confirmed there would be no play on Friday.

It is understood it will be left to sports event organisers to decide how to proceed, and postponements will not be mandatory.
