Football to restart in England on Tuesday after postponement following Queen’s death

English Football League (EFL) fixtures will resume on Tuesday with tributes paid to the late Queen Elizabeth II, after matches across the country were postponed over the weekend.

“A minute’s silence will be held before matches, with black armbands to be worn by participants, flags to be flown at half-mast and the National Anthem to be played in stadiums,’’ the EFL said in a statement on Monday. 

“With a national policing plan now in operation, the League and Clubs will continue to work with forces in respect of any challenges that may emerge regarding policing of specific fixtures.

“Consideration to individual circumstances will be made on a case-by-case basis, in line with standard match Safety Advisory Group (SAG) protocols.” 

The EFL comprises the Championship, League One and League Two. The Premier League has not yet confirmed when games will resume.
