I see that Scotland v Cyprus is on Saturday 25th March with a 2pm k-o. Numerous league matches have already been rescheduled for the Friday night. Rovers are scheduled to be at home to Bonnyrigg that day and surely we wont be up against that match which is sold out but will obviously be live on Sky.
Would be best to move the Bonnyrigg game to Friday, but presumably Bonnyrigg need to agree as well.
On the coronation, I imagine that Government guidance will be issued at some point (probably from DCMS, with the Scottish Government keeping well out of it) and sporting organisations will then decide. When whatsername died, the guidance was that sporting events need not be cancelled, but the SFA and SPFL decided to cancel all matches anyway. It will likely be for them to decide again. But there is no reason why football, or other sporting or cultural occasions, should be disrupted by this. Whatsisname is already King, wants the ceremonial event to be scaled down, and the event will take place in the morning and be over before matches kick off.
