Minute's silence to be held before MK Dons game at Stadium MK

    The EFL have confirmed its fixture programme will return as scheduled from tomorrow (13/9), with tributes to be paid to Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

    The EFL and Premier League had postponed all games over the weekend following the passing of Her Majesty The Queen.

    Fixtures that were set to take place between 9th and 11th September, including MK Dons game against Bristol Rovers, were postponed as a mark of respect following the news last Thursday (8/9).

    Now, the EFL have confirmed that its fixture programme will return as scheduled from this Tuesday, along with tributes to Queen Elizabeth II.

    The Dons are set to take on Bolton Wanderers at 7.45pm on Tuesday 13th September, at Stadium MK.

    "The EFL fixture programme will return as scheduled from Tuesday 13 September, with tributes to be paid to Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II at grounds around the country.

    "A minute’s silence will be held before matches, with black armbands to be worn by participants, flags to be flown at half-mast and the National Anthem to be played in stadiums.

    "With a national policing plan now in operation, the League and Clubs will continue to work with forces in respect of any challenges that may emerge regarding policing of specific fixtures.

    "Consideration to individual circumstances will be made on a case-by-case basis, in line with standard match Safety Advisory Group (SAG) protocols."
