An already packed British football calendar looks as though it will be thrown into flux over the next couple of weeks, with the death of monarch Queen Elizabeth II set to have a major impact on sporting events in the UK.
It remains to be seen if next week's games will be affected, with a decision on that set to come in the days ahead.
While domestic fixtures will be off, it is a different matter for European games. A number of British clubs are set to play in the various UEFA competitions next week, most of them at home. However, it remains to be seen if they will be allowed to host those fixtures in their own grounds.
Postponement also seems unlikely considering this falls into UEFA's remit, meaning some alternative solutions may be needed.
Aviva Stadium mooted as European venue for English clubs
According to a report in the Irish Sun, the Aviva Stadium has been sounded out about the possibility of hosting European fixtures involving English clubs in the days ahead.
Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Arsenal are all due to play home games in either the Champions League or Europa League this week.
That quartet of clubs have all played in the Aviva Stadium in the past. Liverpool hosted friendlies there on a number of occasions over the last decade, while Chelsea and Arsenal played each other in a summer fixture back in 2018. As for Manchester City, they featured in the Dublin Super Cup back in 2011.
There would be quite a scramble for any available tickets should the games be moved to Ireland.
Liverpool will play Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday night, while Chelsea will play Red Bull Salzburg and Manchester City face Borussia Dortmund on the same night. Arsenal take on PSV Eindhoven on Thursday.
Should the switch take place, it is likely that it will be confirmed sooner rather than later.
