FA statement- fixtures tonight and this weekend

By Ian Townsend

The FA have released the following statement- for the attention of those clubs who may have fixtures tonight and this weekend

Following the sad passing of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, The FA has sought guidance from the Royal Household and Her Majesty’s Government.

“We can confirm all football fixtures this evening and over the weekend [10-11 April 2021] can continue at the discretion of competition organisers. The FA will be recommending that black armbands are worn and a minute’s silence is observed before matches are played, including tonight’s England women’s international fixture in France.

“As a mark of respect, all flags at Wembley Stadium and St. George’s Park will fly at half-mast and the Wembley arch will also be lit.”
