Seven high-profile games are taking place this weekend – with Albion still on hiatus.
Premier League football is set to return after the Queen’s death but two high-profile games have now been postponed after consultation with police.
While other sports continued following the news from Buckingham Palace, football has been put on hold as a show of respect and although it will largely return to normal in the coming days, Chelsea v Liverpool and Manchester United v Leeds have been cancelled.
Seven high-profile games take place over the weekend, with Albion missing out against Crystal Palace as it has already been postponed due to planned rail strikes.
That game is now understood to be canceled due to police obligations over the weekend of the Queen’s funeral.
