Official: Arsenal vs PSV postponed

Arsenal’s upcoming clash with PSV has been called off, PSV are reporting.


The Gunners were set to take on the Dutch outfit at the Emirates on Thursday evening in a Europa League clash.

However, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the number of police available to cover football matches has gone down.

And now, PSV have confirmed on Monday that this week’s game is off, with no date for when the tie will be moved to.

A statement read: “The Arsenal - PSV match is still postponed. UEFA reported this to PSV on Monday afternoon. 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 due to the funeral services of the British Queen Elizabeth in London.

“It is not yet known when the Europa League match will be made up. More information about this will follow. We will keep supporters who have bought a ticket for the match personally informed of developments by e-mail.”

Given Arsenal do not have a free midweek until after January, it is hard to see when the game will be able to take place.

Arsenal’s Europa League Group Stage campaign is expected to end on November 3rd vs Zurich.
