September 13 – Arsenal’s Europa League fixture with PSV Eindhoven has been postponed due to the lack of adequate security personnel following the death of Queen Elizabeth, UEFA said on Monday.
“This is due to the severe limitations on police resources and organisational issues related to the ongoing events surrounding the national mourning for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” wrote UEFA in a statement.
The European confederation added that a new date will be communicated in due course. It’s the second European tie to be affected by the Queen’s death after Scottish side Rangers’ home game against Napoli on Tuesday was moved to Wednesday.
All other European fixtures on British soil will go ahead as planned with Liverpool hosting Ajax on Tuesday, while Chelsea welcome Salzburg and Manchester City play host to Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.
The Queen died last Thursday which led to the postponement of a raft of football matches at the weekend, with three more matches set to be postponed in the weekend ahead of the Queen’s funeral.
