Supporters are asked to be in their seats earlier than usual, with players set to enter the field at approximately 2:54pm.

Honouring Her Majesty

Players and match officials will wear black armbands as a mark of respect and, together with managers, will gather at the centre circle before kick-off.

Fans will be asked to join a minute's silence, which will be followed by the National Anthem, God Save The King.

The big screen and LED perimeter boards will display tribute images to Her Majesty and flags at St. James' Park will be flying at half-mast.

When the clock turns to 70 minutes, fans will also be invited to applaud The Queen's 70-year reign.
