Preston North End has defended their decision to suspend a fan for life over their comments about the Queen and the Royal Family.

The nation is mourning the death of Her Majesty the Queen after Buckingham Palace announced the news Thursday evening. Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest reigning monarch, has died aged 96.

And Preston, who plays in the championship, has suspended a fan for life following comments from the supporter about the Queen and the Royal Family. These comments were subsequently reported to the club and the Preston board was informed.

The fan had tweeted: ‘Will I be kicked out of the stadium if I declare silence for the Queen’s death during a minute? #pnefc.’

Upon request for comment by Sports postPreston said: ‘As a football club we recognize everyone’s right to freedom of expression and personal opinion. In this particular case, a series of public domain tweets were linked to this football club by association.

A specific tweet, which has since been deleted, crossed the line of acceptability and associating us as a club has issued a stadium ban. As with all decisions, we will always listen if the individual makes statements as to why our decision was inappropriate for their actions.”

In a letter addressed to a supporter dated September 10, shared on TwitterIt read: ‘To confirm my phone calls and email to you on Friday 9 September 2022, your comments on Twitter about the Queen and the Royal Family have been reported to the club and the board has been notified.

The decision sparked criticism on Twitter, with the account @FairCop_ saying it’s “for advice to fans about football policing, stewarding, club bans or referral to specialist lawyers,” reacting to Preston’s decision.

The account shared a photo of the letter sharing the ban, saying: “I’m looking forward to helping this person challenge this life ban, find out what terms and conditions he has violated and why the police have been ‘advised accordingly’.” as there is no suggestion a criminal offense has been committed and a stadium ban is a civil matter.’
