No idea, but acquiring businesses, distressed or investment opportunities that they can sell on is what they do. They aren't in the business of giving struggling football clubs around the world money for nothing. 

The proposed sports hub might be a good investment and good publicity for an investment company.

Is sponsorship "nothing"?

Is St.Mirren FC really a "struggling football club"?

I thought SMiSA was raising money to buy the majority shareholding of the club over a 10 year period?

Could the detractors please tell me what Skyview think they would gain from buying the club? We don't have much of value. Even the stadium would sell for very little in real terms given the location. It seems to me they have more to gain by being seen sponsoring a small, provincial club with a community at it's heart if they want to positively promote the company to the Scottish market. We don't know the ins and outs of their business in the UK so I for one will take their financial input at face value and believe they are simply paying money to get advertising rights. No more, no less.

Bottom end Scottish championship I class that as struggling
Next season maybe New hope. Sponsorship buys the obvious or the insidious, or both.
Will we see a spate of invest in Skyview Boards around the stadium?
C'mon you get nowt, for nowt.

The team has been struggling but the company isn't struggling.

A transfer windfall from McAllister and Naismith, a run to a cup final, a cup quarter final away to Celtic live on TV and bigger gates in the last few weeks than we've had for 2 seasons all suggest the club is in fairly rude health financially.

I find it remarkable that any St.Mirren fan would greet a new major sponsor with anything other than open arms.

JD Sports have been exposed as sweatshop minimum wage dodging f**kers, but yet I can't see a thread where you called them to task?

Strange that isn't it?

A sponsor board promoting the goods or services provided by a company, group or individual...that's a crazy idea!

Well...    

As you asked with a general slag - including brother LPM - for Buddies to make you smile....

and Cockles asked specifically if LPM could make you smile... (NOT you, the previous poster) in your general slag...

logic dictates why I knew.

but I seriously don't give a fuck. :)

 

so I'm sorry for trying to help.
