News | Fixtures cancelled this weekend & FA Statement
The Football Association have today released a statement regarding the sad passing of Her Majesty the Queen, and the the postponement of fixtures across the Country.
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 the passing of Her Majesty the Queen, English football has united to postpone all football fixtures between 9-11 September. 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, and matches across grassroots football in England will be postponed. The Premier League and the EFL have all confirmed that their fixtures this weekend will be rescheduled for a later date. 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 scheduled 'Gas Girls' matches for this Sunday (Poole Town Vs Bristol Rovers Women's & Bristol Rovers Women's Development Vs Bristol & West) will now be rescheduled for a later date.
