EFL Statement: HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

9 April 2021

Following the sad passing of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, the EFL can confirm that there will be a two-minute silence ahead of all EFL fixtures taking place tonight and across the weekend (9-10 April).

Players, coaches, and match officials will also be wearing armbands as a mark of respect to the late Duke.

Rick Parry, EFL Chair said:

“The EFL is truly saddened to learn of the passing of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, at the age of 99.

“As a patron of over 800 organisations, his high regard for the encouragement of sport and welfare of young people was unequivocal, and his loss will undoubtedly be felt not only here in the UK but across the world.

“Our collective thoughts are with Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family at this difficult time.”
