The Europa League match between Arsenal and PSV that was supposed to take place on Thursday has been postponed.
Following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II last week, the decision was taken by the British football associations to postpone all league matches scheduled to take place at the weekend.
When such a decision was taken, it was unclear whether the European matches being played on British soil would go ahead in mid-week, and while most of them are, PSV’s game with Arsenal has now been called off.
The reason for the postponement is a lack of police available for the match due to the Queen’s funeral and the influx of tourists into London for it.
“Last weekend it seemed that the game would be played next Thursday, but the national authorities in Great Britain have decided that insufficient deployment of police personnel is possible because of the funeral services of the British Queen Elizabeth in London,” PSV said on their website.
“When the Europa League game will take place is not yet known.”
