Srinagar, May 3: For the first time in the history of English Premier League, a football club has hosted Eid Prayer at the stadium. Blackburn Rovers hosted the Eid Prayer at Ewood Park.

Around 1,500 people – both men and women – took to the pitch at Ewood Park with their prayer mats to celebrate Eid.

“Worshippers arrived at the stadium shortly after 8.30am, with extra plastic sheeting needing to be put in place to accommodate numbers,” BBC news reported.

“Eid Mubarak from everyone at Blackburn Rovers,” Blackburn tweeted, along with a video showing people gathering on the pitch.
