Postponed Matches Resumed (12.09.2022)

Matchark is deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Her Majesty The Queen, Elizabeth II. We send our deepest condolences to the Royal Family, the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.

After a week of matches postponed following the Queen's passing, matches of the English Football League are resumed. In tribute to the Queen, the national anthem is played before matches, a minute's silence before kick-off with players wearing black armbands.
