With the death of the Queen and the longest serving monarch to ever serve it’s expected that there will be no football games to be played in the UK for the next ten days. According to the sun newspaper the English teams might have to play their games out of the UK and one option is the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

How big a pay day that would be for the IRFU & FAI and indeed the whole of Ireland with the crowds that would flood into Dublin for those games next week. With Liverpool to play Ajax and we all know the big Irish following Liverpool has. Interesting times in the UK & we send our condolences to those that were closed to the Queen.
