Premier League Suspends Matches After Queen's Death

The folks at the Football Supporters Association were upset: they believe having the matches was an opportunity for fans to show their respect (minute of silence, nation "coming together").

Though, they did make sure to express concern about potential reimbursement: I guess it's understandable as weekend matches will be played on weeknights; supporters, especially traveling supporters, might be unable to attend.
