The NFL will honor Queen Elizabeth II before the 2022-23 season kicks off … with the league holding a moment of silence, TMZ Sports has learned.
Tributes throughout the sports world have been pouring in on Thursday … with many athletes, organizations and events sharing condolences over the passing of Her Majesty.
In addition to the NFL’s tribute, the BMW PGA Championship has suspended play until further notice … with organizers saying golf would be paused for the time being in the wake of the Queen’s death.
“Out of respect for Her Majesty and the Royal Family, play has been suspended at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Club for the remainder of Thursday, and flags at Wentworth Club will be lowered to half-mast,” a statement from the Tour reads, according to GOLF.com.
“Furthermore, no play will take place at the BMW PGA Championship on Friday, and the golf course and practice facilities will be closed.”
Thursday was the first day of the BMW PGA Championship tournament — which is held in Europe — and one of golf’s biggest names, Rory McIlroy, was competing in it.
