Organised football given return date following Queen's death but Leeds United fixture remains off
and live on Freeview channel 276
Despite this, Leeds United’s match with Nottingham Forest – initially scheduled for Monday – will not go ahead as the Premier League’s fixture list for matchday seven remains postponed.
The league took a decision to halt all games this weekend after the monarch’s death, and has vowed to keep supporters up to date with possible future postponements in line with the Queen’s state funeral.
FA Trophy fixtures and matches in the National League have been permitted to go ahead, as per the BBC, but Leeds’ Monday night game remains off.
Due to the upcoming international break, United may not play until the month of October if a decision is taken to postpone next weekend’s round of matches due to logistical concerns.
That said, a call is still to be made on the possibility of next Friday’s Under-21 fixture at Elland Road going ahead.
With the news that selected matches are to be played tomorrow, there is hope midweek Football League fixtures can also go ahead as the footballing calendar returns to normality before the disruption surrounding this year’s winter World Cup in Qatar.
