Football postpones fixtures

It was with great sadness that the Football Supporters’ Association received yesterday’s announcement that the Queen had died peacefully at Balmoral. Following that news, the football authorities today said that, from the Premier League down to the grassroots game, football matches would be postponed. The FSA’s response to football’s announcement is below.

The Football Supporters’ Association said:

“We believe football is at its finest when bringing people together at times of huge national significance – be those moments of joy or moments of mourning.

“Our view, which we shared with the football authorities, is that most supporters would have liked to go to games this weekend and pay their respect to the Queen alongside their fellow fans.

“Not everyone will agree, so there was no perfect decision for the football authorities, but many supporters will feel this was an opportunity missed for football to pay its own special tributes.

“As usual, the Football Supporters’ Association will be collating advice about supporters’ entitlements regarding expenses incurred relating to postponed games this weekend.”
