Train drivers' strike threatens to postpone English Premier League matches

Train workers and drivers decided to organize a new strike, on 1 and 5 October, prompting the English Premier League to face a new problem that may force it to postpone more matches after the international break.

  "Rail workers and train drivers have been going on strike recently, due to a dispute with the government over wage increases, and the Brighton and Crystal Palace meeting was previously postponed due to the strike," British media reported.

“In the event of not reaching an agreement and canceling the strike, several meetings scheduled in the English Premier League are scheduled for next October 1, threatening to postpone, most notably the north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham, and other meetings that require fans to travel to follow them in other cities Liverpool – Brighton and Fulham – Newcastle and Southampton-Everton," she added.


The English Premier League and the English Football Association were forced to postpone the seventh round of the English Premier League and the rest of football matches in England due to the death of Queen Elizabeth, and other meetings will be postponed at the weekend due to preparations for the Queen’s funeral scheduled for next Monday, which is the Brighton Crystal Palace meetings that were among the scheduled for Saturday, Chelsea - Liverpool and Manchester United - Leeds United, which was scheduled for Sunday.
