Football mourns the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Statement From The FA – 9th September
Her Majesty the Queen was a long-standing Patron of The Football Association and has left a lasting and indelible legacy on our national game.
As a mark of respect, following her passing, English football has united to postpone all football fixtures between 9-11 September. This follows Government guidance, which encourages sporting organisations to show respect in an appropriate way.
The FA can confirm that all football fixtures across the Barclays Women’s Super League, Barclays Women’s Championship, the Vitality Women’s FA Cup, and the Isuzu FA Trophy, will be postponed this weekend. We can also confirm that all football fixtures across the National League System [NLS], Steps 1-6, including the Vanarama National Leagues, the Women’s Football Pyramid (WFP], Tiers 3-7 (SCEFL), and matches across grassroots football in England will be postponed.
All flags at Wembley Stadium and St. George’s Park will continue to fly at half-mast over the weekend.
Our thoughts remain with our president, HRH The Duke of Cambridge, and the whole of the Royal Family during this time.
The Southern Counties East League echoes the words from the FA over the sad loss of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
All SCEFL fixtures will be rescheduled for a later date.
