ST MIRREN has renamed its pitch as a tribute to the group of supporters set to complete a fan-backed buyout this summer

The Pals have ceded the naming rights of St Mirren Park to the St Mirren Independent Supporters Association (SMISA) for the remainder of the 2020/21 season – the Paisley pitch to be known as the SMISA stadium

After that, the fan group will increase their stake in the club to 51% by purchasing the remaining shares of President Gordon Scott.

The takeover was funded by monthly dues paid by the more than 1,150 SMISA members and Group Chairman George Adam MSP said: “Our goal has always been the same: to see St Mirren stay forever at the heart of the Paisley community and in the hands of those who will care the most

“What better way to mark club ownership in the hands of the fans than to put their name above the door?

“When we started the journey to fan ownership five years ago, we never expected to be in this position so soon – but the incredible commitment of our members made it possible. We are delighted that the club board has chosen to recognize SMISA members in this way.  »

The SMISA purchase was due to be completed by the end of 2021, but it has now been agreed that this will happen sooner than expected – on a date to be decided this summer

St Mirren chairman Gordon Scott added: « I’ve always wanted to know that I hand over ownership of the club to the fans when the time is right, and with the setup we now have in place, we think the time is right. will have come summer

“The rest of the board and I are delighted to be able to recognize the commitment of SMISA members over the past five years to making this all possible.

“Unfortunately our fans cannot be in the stadium at the moment, but we hope that the name of SMISA on the pitch for the remainder of the season shows how much we appreciate them as the driving force and future of the club. »
