FA Statement: An Update on Football Fixtures this Weekend

Details on Football at All Levels Following the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II

Her Majesty the Queen was a long-standing Patron of The Football Association and has left a lasting and indelible legacy on our national game.

As a mark of respect, following the passing of Her Majesty the Queen, English football has united to postpone all football fixtures between 9-11 September. Surrey FA supports this position.

The FA confirm that all football fixtures across the Barclays Women’s Super League, Barclays Women’s Championship, the Vitality Women’s FA Cup, and the Isuzu FA Trophy, will be postponed this weekend.


The FA also confirm that all football fixtures across the National League System [NLS], Steps 1-6, including the Vanarama National Leagues, the Women’s Football Pyramid [WFP], Tiers 3-7, and matches (competitive and friendlies) across grassroots football in England will be postponed.


For clarity, this does not include other football activities, such as training or coaching. It only applies to fixtures – both competitive and friendly matches. Participation in other activities is down to the discretion of the organiser or individual.


The thoughts of the SFA Board and staff remain with The FA president, HRH The Duke of Cambridge, and the whole of the Royal Family during this time.
