Manchester United were set to travel to Crystal Palace on Sunday after their 1-0 loss to Real Sociedad on Thursday.
Both United and Sociedad wore black armbands and participated in a minute silence before the game.
The EFL and SPFL have also announced the postponement of all weekend’s fixtures.
Lower leagues and grassroots have also followed the decision.
It is likely that league fixtures will continue to be postponed during the period of mourning.
