Last weekend, English football united together to honour and remember Her Majesty the Queen. The FA would like to express their thanks and gratitude to everyone across our game for their support and understanding as we paid respect to our long-standing Patron of The Football Association, Queen Elizabeth II.

After a period of pause and reflection for our national game, we can confirm that fixtures will resume as scheduled, including the Toolstation Western League, and all matches across football in England.

All matches held at stadiums are subject to leagues and clubs working with the relevant authorities to stage these fixtures, as usual practice. The FA have recommended to clubs, leagues and competitions across the country that a minute’s silence is observed before matches are played, and that black armbands should be worn where possible.

The FA can also confirm that all scheduled football matches will be postponed on the day of Her Majesty the Queen’s funeral on Monday 19 September. Our thoughts at this time remain with His Majesty King Charles III, the President of the FA, HRH The Prince of Wales, and the whole of the Royal Family.
