Tranmere Rovers hosts Eid prayers on Prenton Park pitch

This morning, Prenton Park welcomed the local Muslim community as Tranmere Rovers hosted the Eid al-Fitr prayers.

In collaboration with the Wirral Deen Centre Mosque and Community Centre, Tranmere Rovers became the second football club in the UK to hold Eid prayers on a football pitch.

Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the month-long period of fasting during Ramadan, in which Muslims traditionally refrain from consuming food and drink during daylight hours.

Tranmere Rovers invited the local Muslim community to pray in Jama’ah on the Prenton Park pitch, with hundreds of people in attendance.

Every attendee received complimentary Tranmere tickets for the final home game of the season against Northampton Town, scheduled for Monday 8 May.

Ibrahim Syed, Community Leader at Wirral Deen Centre, said, “Being able to do the Eid prayers at Tranmere Rovers’ Prenton Park has been an absolute heartfelt delight for the whole community.

“We’ve had more than 700 people attend prayers today. For myself, it just means so much to the whole community because, being born and brought up here and I’m now nearly forty years old, just to really feel like you’re part of the community of Tranmere Rovers, and Tranmere Rovers including the Muslim community just feels absolutely great.

“Special thanks to Tranmere Rovers – it just shows how much of a community club Tranmere Rovers is and that it’s a truly inclusive club, and everybody’s part of the Super White Army.”
