The Premier League has announced that clubs will hold a minute of in-game applause to pay tribute to the Queen this weekend.
A minute’s silence and performances of the national anthem took place in the EFL on Tuesday night as football returned after being postponed since last Thursday.
Meanwhile, Liverpool and Tottenham observed a minute’s silence ahead of their Champions League games on Tuesday.
Now the Premier League has confirmed how it will ask its 20 clubs to show their respect this weekend, following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
For each game between Friday 16th and Sunday 18th September, there will be a minute of applause observed at the 70th minute of each game to represent the late Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
The game will continue throughout the tribute, as fans pay their respects from the 70th to the 71st minute of the match.
Each Premier League game will also observe a minute’s silence before kick-off.
Then the national anthem, God Save the King, will be sung before the game begins.
