The EFL has confirmed that following the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, this weekend's round of games across the Championship, League One and League Two have been postponed.

The EFL had already confirmed that Friday evening's Championship meeting between Burnley and Norwich City and the League Two clash between Tranmere Rovers and Stockport County had already been called off.

Earlier this morning representatives of the EFL met with ministers at the Department of Culture, Media, and Sport to review the official mourning guidance and decide whether the remaining games would go ahead.

Released via the EFL's official website, the statement reads; Further to discussions on Friday morning it has been determined that all EFL fixtures from 9-10 September will be postponed as a mark of respect by the National Sport to the passing of HRH Queen Elizabeth II.

This is aligned with the approach that the Premier League and the FA will take with their competitions this weekend.

Further information, in respect of how football, Clubs and their supporters will commemorate Her Majesty’s reign will be confirmed at an appropriate point.

Details regarding rearranged games will be announced in due course.
