Event for The Family Stand Season Ticket Holders

At the end of last season supporters within the family stand were moved from their seats to allow more Rangers fans to attend the final match of the 2015/16 season campaign. The previous board made promises to provide some sort of compensation to those supporters who were forced to move seats, however, they sold the club before the season started.

The new board are very aware of the disruption this caused and would like to make up for it in some small way.

In conjunction with the St Mirren Fans Council, we have arranged an exclusive event for season ticket holders in the family stand. It takes place on Sunday 19 March from 12:30pm to 2:30pm and we will be hosting a family fun afternoon in the 1877 Supporters Club. It’s only for those family stand season tickets who were displaced for that Rangers match and is our way of saying thanks for renewing your season ticket.

There will be much to keep the children and yourselves busy with a children’s disco, face painting and more along with attendance by current and former players. There is no charge to supporters for this event and we will also be providing a buffet.

In addition, the Scotland U17s will be taking on Serbia at the Paisley 2021 Stadium at 3pm and entry is free. So feel free to stay for the rest of the afternoon and watch the Scotland stars of the future.

To allow us to cater for everyone we would appreciate it if you could let us know in advance if you are attending. Please email fanscouncil@stmirren.com to confirm your attendance.

On the day you will need to bring your season ticket with you to gain entry to the SMFC 1877 Club which is situated at the far right hand side of the main stand near the club shop.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you to the Supporters Club.

Scratch for Saints

Scratch for Saints, the club’s scratch card scheme, was launched on 26 December, 2015 and has become an instant hit with supporters and the wider community.  The fund raising scheme was devised by a member of the Fans Council to help generate additional revenues to help assist the Youth Academy and other joint projects conceived by the club and the SMFansCouncil.  Its success has enabled us, to generate thousands of pounds to assist with St.Mirren Youth Development . E.g  £1000 towards the purchase of new goal posts for the Academy (in conjunction with SMISA who also contributed £1000) and to provide a further contribution of £1000 to secure new training ground equipment.

Scratch for Saints was carefully devised to ensure that it appealed to the club’s supporters as it also provided prizes of a non-cash nature.  Although it has a maximum cash prize value of £100, season 2015/2016’s cards also provided “Hot Card” prizes that provided a signed team shirt for lucky winners.  The ratio of winning cards was also set at 1:25 to ensure that fans were provided a greater chance of winning prizes.

This season, 2016/2017 we have improved the Hot Card prizes to provide FREE gym membership for a year (worth over £300) and this has been provided by our card sponsors, Planet Bodybuild in Paisley.  The new card design features two of the 1987 Scottish Cup winning squad – Tony Fitzpatrick and Billy Abercrombie – and also provides a FREE gym day pass for ALL cards bought.  Card buyers present their used scratch card and can enjoy a gym visit, guided tuition and a discounted membership fee.
