A meeting will be held at 11am between Premier League clubs regarding the potential postponement of this weekend’s fixtures following the Queen’s death on Thursday.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II passed away in her Balmoral home on Thursday afternoon with her family by her side with King Charles III now taking the throne.

The Queen’s death has sent shockwaves around the globe and has led to a period of mourning in the United Kingdom after her 70 years on the throne.

Now there are discussions as to whether this weekend’s football fixtures in the Premier League and other leagues in the United Kingdom will now be postponed.

According to Mike Keegan of the Daily Mail, a meeting will be held between Premier League clubs at 11am on Friday with the Chief Executive of the competition Richard Masters telling clubs they will have to make their ‘own decisions’ with regards to fixture postponements.

He tweeted: “DCMS all sports call, following the Queen’s passing, at 0930. PL meeting at 1100. Richard Masters has told clubs that government guidance is unlikely to be ‘definitive’ and that they will have to make their own decisions with regards to fixtures.”

Aston Villa are set to travel to the King Power Stadium on Saturday to take on Leicester City, while Wolverhampton Wanderers will also be on the road, when they face Liverpool at Anfield on the same day.
