The UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has told the Premier League that it can continue hosting games at the weekend after the demise of Queen Elizabeth II.
The country is in mourning for the next 10 days, but the government has insisted that there is no obligation to cancel league games and the decision is on the organizers.
However, the department has indicated that organizers might wish to postpone the games on the weekend of 17-18 September due to the Queen’s State Funeral.
The organizers have also been given a suggestion to hold a minute’s silence or play the national anthem before fixtures and for players to wear black armbands as a mark of respect.
The Premier League committee is currently discussing what to do with this month’s league games and should confirm their decision soon.
