The Queen: Following the Queen’s 96th birthday death, Manchester United shares the “sorrow of the nation.”
Following the announcement of Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II’s passing on Thursday, Manchester United paid respect to her.
Following the announcement that the 96-year-old, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, had gone away,
the Premier League team released a brief word of tribute to social media, turning their club crest dark.
Later on Thursday at Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag’s team is scheduled to play Real Sociedad in their Europa League debut,
and the club has verified that everything will go according to schedule.
According to the club’s statement, “Manchester United shares the nation’s sorrow following the announcement from Buckingham Palace on the passing of Her Royal Highness The Queen Elizabeth II.”
The club acknowledges her significant contributions to public life, particularly sport, in the UK, the Commonwealth, and globally.
Everyone associated with Manchester United sends the Royal Family their sincere regrets and sympathies on behalf of the whole football community.
The FA and UEFA have given their approval, therefore tonight’s match at Old Trafford between Real Sociedad and the UEFA Europa League will proceed as scheduled.
Both sides will wear black armbands, and the flags at Old Trafford will fly at half-mast as a gesture of our highest respect,
during the minute of silence that will be observed prior to the start of the game in honor of Her Majesty, The Queen.
