Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, aged 96, Great Britain will be observing a 10-day mourning period.

This means that all Premier League games on Saturday, Sept. 10, Sunday, Sept. 11 and Monday, Sept. 12 have been postponed. 

Additionally, all soccer fixtures across the men’s and women’s game in England, plus in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, have also been postponed this weekend as a mark of respect.

A decision is yet to be made regarding next weekend's Premier League games.

When Will The Postponed Premier League Games Be Played?

Dates have not yet been set for when the postponed games will be played.

Fortunately for the bookmakers, the NFL kicks off this week in the U.S.

For bettors who already placed their wagers on this weekend's games, they will need to refer the bookmaker's individual websites.

The Premier League issued the following statement in regard to the postponements:

"This weekend’s match round to be postponed as a mark of respect for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. At a meeting this morning, Premier League clubs paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

"To honour her extraordinary life and contribution to the nation, and as a mark of respect, this weekend’s Premier League match round will be postponed, including Monday evening’s game.

"Richard Masters, Premier League Chief Executive, said: “We and our clubs would like to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s long and unwavering service to our country.  As our longest-serving monarch, she has been an inspiration and leaves behind an incredible legacy following a life of dedication. This is a tremendously sad time for not just the nation but also for the millions of people around the world who admired her, and we join together with all those in mourning her passing.”

"Further updates regarding Premier League fixtures during the period of mourning will be provided in due course."

King Charles III, 73, planned to meet with the prime minister and address a nation grieving the only British monarch nearly 80% of people alive today had ever known.
