how does sponsoring a player in the match programme work exactly - does he get more coverage than others ? i am honestly at a loss as to how it benefits a player to be "sponsored" in a match day programme

I'm sure you must be taking the pish as you are an "experienced/older" supporter of our fine club.

This is normally a way for some supporters to get a signed strip at the end of the season of the sponsored player. The club receives an income to provide kits for the players - even though the current sponsorship deal provides match and training wear.

The cost of kit sponsorship is beyond most supporters, so what SMISA usually try and do is sponsor a player through an event like this - and then do a public raffle on the back of it so that someone gets the chance to win the signed top.

Some would argue that it beats buying towels and t-shirts........but the principle is the same.

Well done SMISA for organising this - hopefully the venue will help the event.

thanks slash, the wording in the OP stated "sponsorship of a player in next seasons match programme" but that's where they list who sponsors players kits - the wording put me off a bit,

and "older/experienced" i'm just a pup

These are the prices for this season to sponsor a player which is more than the cost of a season ticket. As a community club I think that is way out the reach of most supporters.

I personally think the club need to look at making this more affordable to a wider supporter base, or at least offer a chance for supporters through Season Ticket purchase to enter into a raffle for either the captains home or away top - or else a dedicated "12th Man signed supporters top made out with the winners name" - obviously signed by the players and not all season ticket holders.

Home Shirt – £350 + VAT

not just through season tickets, make it available to everyone who buys a ticket, extra £1 option when buying next seasons cup final tickets for example, this gives you a raffle ticket to win the captains signed top

Just a wee reminder that tickets are available from 1pm tomorrow from the club shop thanks to Alan Provan.

Could be the last chance for many fans to get their photos taken with the cup winning legends before some of them move onto pastures new.

who picked the players to get the trophies ,was nt the members!

Waldorf - why do you get so angry about this and other matter relating to SMiSA?

SMiSA have always tried to be inclusive of the whole support.

People will always argue (rightly IMO) that they are not fully representative of the whole St Mirren support - but what SMiSA do is hold events like:

Saints Aid

Q&A nights

Quiz Nights

POTY events

All supporters are invited to attend - usually with the only request that a donation is made towards Youth Development. even the Saints Aid has a competition for people who cannot afford the cost of the auction. In the same way that SMiSA membership is open to all regardless of how much or little you can afford.

I have no doubt that some people at these events will not have made any donation with a line "why the feck would I want to give anything to SMISA?" totally missing the point that the money goes towards Youth Development - but most people are generous and appreciative of the outstanding work that the SMISA committee have done over the last 13 years.

SMISA always make their POTY nominations available to all St Mirren supporters:

Imagine if Div made the B&WA POTY award a members only award - feck me Vanzy would have a host of awards over the years.

Tickets will be available on the door subject to availability. I will keep you posted on number of tickets sold.

Just spoke to Alan Provan who has confirmed that club shop will be open at the ground from 10-2 this week and next.

Hope to see as many buddies there as possible.

If anyone has any queries then please post on this thread and we will try and help.

Why can't we have a supporters POTY night at the ground using hospitality suite

At a push get 150-170 people in with players,must be more professional than on pitch

I stay back every year and lucky if couple of hundred at most stay behind to watch

At least a night at £5 per ticket would generate income and club get takings from the bar?

Just a thought

Although guys at SMISA do put in plenty effort so no criticism
