The English club explained in a statement that the faithful can inquire about the location of the prayer hall in the stadium in order to offer prayers during the current season.
Blackburn had previously opened its stadium to Muslims for the Eid prayers before canceling the decision due to bad weather, setting aside a side garden for prayer at the stadium.
Blackburn Rovers lead the Premier League table with 6 points.
