Season 17/18 St Mirren Kit

Recommended Posts

All major parts are priced separately, though some advertsing was original done just to lift the look of the stadium...such as big banners etc

So what all does the £100k cover? Just the kit contract or the kit, shirt sponsorship, branding etc?

I will check both the number and detail. But basically 2 contracts/section One part is for kit Supply with JD brand And the other is for shirt sponsorship by a JD company.

The not being able to sell kit at stadium is also a myth

Why then did the JD rep' I met once, when queried why other JD-supplied clubs DID sell kit in club shops and we didn't, explained it by saying 'they have a different deal to St Mirren's'. If it is a myth that we couldn't sell kit in the club shop, then (gussing here), is the explanation for the lack of kit in the club shop simply that the old BoD decided not to?

Could that be to do with the merchandising deal the club shop has with the club. I don't know if I'm looking at the accounts wrong but it looks like St Mirren get a flat fee from the caterers which hasn't changed for a few years and either very little or nothing from the club shop.

The wording you use makes it look like they JD, could sell at the stadium but possibly not in the shop.

Am I close.

If it's a myth Richard then there's a whole heap of people who will be very interested to know why we've not been doing it for the past 3 years!

I've already had my punt at the explanation. When we reached the 2013 League Cup final the old BoD needed to send out the Bat signal to get AWP to ride to the rescue and sort out the sorry state of the club's in-house merchandising for a major cup final. When they signed the JD deal, the old BoD jumped at the chance to do the square root of fcuk all with the strips and let it all take place in JDs three stores.

If I'm wrong, fair enough. Like others, would like to hear the real reason then if I'm wide of the mark.

This Season's monstrosity of a home kit must be binned. 
Still the Fans Council haven't apologised for their despicable choice. 
The replica of the 87 strip should have been brought out next May on the f**king anniversary and only as a Third Kit.
Fannies 

st.mirren won the cup season 86/87 ya numpty

£92,500 per annum plus £35,000 of free issue kit.JD did have sole rights to sell the strips and the sponsorship of the dome was extra.

All in all a huge amount of money to lose but i have no doubts that a new deal will be high up on the list of priorities of the present board.

I,m sure MAXI HAULAGE would look terrific on our new strips.

Over to you Richard.

Club AGM with announcement that the JD deal will be ending.

 

 

Ta. Guess that means there's a requirement for a new kit supplier, new primary shirt sponsor, new stadium branding, new airdome sponsor, and new (updated) HoF panels with the JD adverts removed. Have I missed anything?

Farewell to bespoke kit design. Hope whoever gets the gig issues us with something decent.

yeah think contract was up and wasn't renewed.

Never mind that. Did the Fan Council know who really shot JFK? I think there's more chance of St Mirren fans actually finding out before they find out why kits were never on sale at the stadium for three plus years.

It's like everyone involved signed the official secrets act and won't talk - even after the ex-chairman cracked under pressure on Twitter and let the words '100k' slip from his lips. He should be worried. Bumped off on Christmas Eve by JD Sports crack Chinese factory hit squad... easy to spot. They're the guys who can't get their balaclavas over their heads as the hole was made too small.
