Eastleigh Football Club can confirm that the Men’s National League home fixture against Scunthorpe United on Saturday 10th September, and the Women’s Southern Region Premier Division home fixture against Abingdon Town on Sunday 11th September, have been postponed as a mark of respect after the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Following the FA’s postponement of grassroots football as well this weekend, training sessions across our Academy age groups have also been cancelled on Friday, 9th September.

Everyone associated with Eastleigh Football Club continues to join the nation in mourning her loss at this difficult time.

Further information regarding a rescheduled date and ticketing information will be confirmed in due course.

As it stands, fixtures planned to be played from Monday, 12th September will go ahead as planned and tickets for the Vanarama National League home game against Yeovil Town on Tuesday, 13 September can still be purchased HERE.


Firstly, the National League sends sincere condolences of all Member Clubs on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to His Majesty King Charles III and the further Royal Family.

Further to this morning’s statement by Debbie Hewitt, chair of The Football Association, all National League System, FA Trophy, and grassroots fixtures scheduled for this weekend will not take place as a mark of respect. The Queen was the FA’s patron, and Prince William is its President.

At this moment National League fixtures will go ahead as planned from Monday 12 September onwards although we understand no sporting event of any kind will be permitted on the day of The Queen’s funeral.

The decision to postpone this weekend’s fixtures is taken in line with guidance from the FA in consultation with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. The League fully supports this stance.
