No EPL For 2 Weeks? UK Govt Sends Message to EPL Organisers After Death of The Queen

The United Kingdom government has issued a statement to the English Premier League organizers after the sudden death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Queen Elizabeth II passed on aged 96 years.

Her death had raised concerns about at least postponing the EPL matches as a sign of mourning the queen.

Many fans around the world had anticipated a two-week break from one of the most watched leagues in the world

However, the government has said there is no obligation to cancel or postpone any sporting fixtures because of the queen's death.

However, the organizers have been given a chance to make the choice, of whether to cancel, or postpone fixtures or not.

"The UK government have said there is no obligation to cancel or postpone sporting fixtures this weekend following the death of the Queen. However, they have left the decision as to whether games go ahead up to the individual organisations," the source said.

With the World Cup a few months ahead and congested fixtures including the Champions League and Europa League fixtures, there are higher chances the league is going to go on without break.
