The Dome

84 posts in this topic

From GLS's statement on official site

"THE DOME 

The Dome has been down now for a few weeks. For me this is unacceptable but once again we are faced with a situation where the company that supplied it originally has gone out of business and there only appears to be one company in Scotland that can repair it!

A template was taken last week to repair the tears and the repair was carried out today so, depending on the damage to the lighting inside, we expect to be up and running again early next week. We will contact all our long term bookings as soon as we have an exact date. We have asked the company for an estimate to strengthen the problem areas so this does not continue to be a yearly event!"

Sorry to bang on about this but does anyone know if the Dome is open for business today? Been phoning the club all day and it just keeps ringing out. 

There's an issue with the phones at the club according to their twitter account

Is it not about time we got rid of the JD  branding from the Dome.Don't know why we're giving those useless bastards free advertising.

The dome advert may be a bit tricky to get down given it's size and the fact that it appears to be a massive transfer that's not really designed to come off. Hopefully something can fit right on top of it. I was quite disappointed to see that the side panels on the stands and above the exits remain though. They should have been long gone by now.

JDs ads are still all over the stadium. maybe there paying for them to stay. But I doubt it.

Tin of black paint should do the job over the JD 🏻 or alternatively sell the inner circular bit to another advertiser and get their logo stuck over JD, simples

I did wonder why the JD signs were still on the sides of the stands. It's a large advertising space that the club should be looking to make use of. It could be, as suggested before, that although they no longer supply our kit, they are still sponsoring us on some level. But I doubt that.

Heres a thought . Perhaps rather than pay people to come in and remove these adverts its more cost effective to leave them in place till another sponsor can be found.

Also , does anyone know , are these panels Vinyl coverings or painted panels ?

You would imagine the Joma rep' who negotiated with GLS would be the one to push for any old 'technical supplier' branding to be removed from the stadium if JD are no longer paying to advertise anywhere. What have JD still got on display? The dome adverts, the gable end round adverts, vomitory and stairs adverts and their logos on the HoF panels?

You would hope that amount of advertising would be getting paid for. If it isn't, down to Joma and the BoD to get rid of it.

No mention of JD here, so one would assume they are now out of the picture and all of their branding should be removed ASAP. Unless anyone knows differently...

Sheets and sheets of red and white stickyback plastic would cover the Dome.

Would pay tribute to the great St Mirren Away Teams of yesteryear.

I'd refrain from spending money removing it until there is a replacement in place or the badges started to fall off.

Perhaps Smisa could spend every penny they have (including maximising any overdraft facility) on using that space to advertise themselves.  The advert could say "join Smisa, we are now skint".

The company I work for still has advertising boards up in most Scottish clubs grounds. That's despite not paying for the space in the last two seasons and having delisted the product in the last 12 months.

I don't think it's as easy to fill the space as some think. So do you have blank spaces or leave the old stuff?
