Leeds United vs Nottingham Forest postponed

Last updated : 12 September 2022 By .

Leeds United, along with the rest of the Premier League, have had their fixtures scheduled this weekend postponed as a mark of respect after Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II passed away yesterday afternoon at Balmoral Castle.

The decision comes after the EFL postponed its Friday fixtures, with both Norwich City's trip to Burnley and Stockport County's trip to Tranmere Rovers being called off.

Now Leeds' home game against Nottingham Forest on Monday will have to be rescheduled, likely until after the World Cup this winter as there are no free midweeks because of the tournament.

A statement from the Premier League read:

"At a meeting this morning, Premier League clubs paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

"To honour her extraordinary life and contribution to the nation, and as a mark of respect, this weekend’s Premier League match round will be postponed, including Monday evening’s game.

"Richard Masters, Premier League Chief Executive, said: “We and our clubs would like to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s long and unwavering service to our country.

""As our longest-serving monarch, she has been an inspiration and leaves behind an incredible legacy following a life of dedication.

""This is a tremendously sad time for not just the nation but also for the millions of people around the world who admired her, and we join together with all those in mourning her passing.”
