Fans await news on this weekend’s matches while other events are canceled
Football fans grieving over the Queen’s passing are anxiously waiting to hear whether this weekend’s games will be postponed following the cancellation of several other events.
West Ham and Manchester United both played games last night in the Europa League and Europa Conference League, but they should be an exception.
Due to the large number of fans visiting the UK, UEFA has decided to allow matches to continue.
However, Premier League sides are said to be of the view that a postponement of weekend games is “extremely likely”.
As a sign of respect to Her Majesty, several events have been canceled over the next few days.

The Mercury Prize ceremony scheduled for tonight has also been postponed, according to organizers, who noted the decision was made “at this time of deep national sadness.”
According to a spokeswoman, “We know everyone who participates in the Mercury Prize will understand.”
The Royal Family is supported by our prayers and sympathy during this very difficult time.
After the monarch passed away, the Queen’s favorite sport was also put on hold.
Today’s Saint-Léger meeting has been canceled and further information on tomorrow’s events is awaited.
The British Horseracing Authority said: “The death of Her Majesty The Queen today has left all of British Racing in sadness.
One of the greatest and most important patrons of horse racing in history has been Her Majesty. Through her intimate involvement in the breeding and racing of horses, as well as her positions as Patron of the Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Breeders Association and face of Royal Ascot, her love of racing and the racehorse s manifested throughout his life.
‘Her Majesty The Queen helped define the breed and contributed to moments on the track that will go down in sporting history, starting with its first ever winner Monaveen and continuing through stars like Carrozza and Highclere to the memorable Estimate.
As we begin to mourn Her Majesty’s departure and commemorate her good life and commitment to our sport and our country, it is fitting that all races are postponed today and tomorrow.
The men’s third England v South Africa Test match scheduled for today at the Oval has already been cancelled, according to the England and Wales Cricket Board.
The golf community was also quick to stop the game out of respect.
The PGA Championship at Wentworth was suspended on day one and Friday’s game will also not take place.
For the remainder of Thursday, play at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Club has been halted out of respect for Her Majesty and the Royal Family, and the flags at Wentworth Club will be flown at half-mast.
Additionally, there will be no play at the BMW PGA Championship on Friday, and the practice facilities and golf course will be closed. More information about the start of the game will be provided as soon as possible.
With the cancellation of the Tour of Britain stage on Friday, cycling also reacted quickly.
The rest of the trip was also postponed entirely and it would no longer end on the Isle of Wight.
Theaters have opted to go ahead with their scheduled productions, despite being meant to highlight the nation’s grief.
As a mark of respect, several theaters across the country will dim their lights tonight, observe a moment of quiet, play the national anthem and open books of condolence ahead of the performance, according to the Society of London Theater and UK Theatre.
The performances would continue throughout the bereavement, according to the advice of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
