Gillingham’s trip to Crawley Town this Saturday has been postponed as a mark of respect following the death of the Queen.
The EFL issued a statement on Friday morning after discussions with the government. The Premier League have also postponed their fixtures over the weekend.
A statement from the Football League said: “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.”
Gillingham had sold in excess of 1,000 tickets for their trip to Crawley but the match will have to be rescheduled.
EFL fixtures will recommence on Tuesday, September 13, when the Gills take on Grimsby Town away.
The Football Association - the game's governing body - have confirmed that all weekend fixtures in England, right down to grassroots level, will be postponed.
In February 1952, after the death of King George VI, the Gills played Port Vale days later in a league match, with players wearing black armbands.
Following a minute’s silence, both the National Anthem and Abide With Me were played. The Gills hosted Crystal Palace the day after the King’s funeral.
