Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) has postponed the Europa League game between Arsenal and PSV Eindhoven scheduled to hold at the Emirates, on Thursday.
UEFA said the match was postponed due to limitations on police numbers in London during the national mourning of Queen Elizabeth II, adding that the feature would be rearranged.
It is not yet known when the match will now be played.
“UEFA today announced that the UEFA Europa League tie between Arsenal FC and PSV Eindhoven, originally to be played on Thursday 15 September, has been postponed with a new date to be communicated in due course.
“This is due to the severe limitations on police resources and organisational issues related to the ongoing events surrounding the national mourning for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” UEFA said in a statement.
The rest of this week’s European ties are expected to go ahead, including home ties for Liverpool against Ajax on Tuesday, and Chelsea against Red Bull Salzburg, on Wednesday.
Rangers’ fixture against Napoli was also rescheduled from Tuesday to Wednesday due to police numbers in Scotland.
