Getting Close To £30 Admission Fee At St Mirren Park.

Recommended Posts

Exactly at 400K to instal that's a hell of a lot of concerts that never happen !!!


Queens make money from the former Tesco store next door which was effectively donated to them , they turned it into indoor training , sevens footy etc and that’s what keeps them going , not concerts and renting their pitch out.
Would be great to see a similar set up at st.mirren

Indeed but that's a different thing from merely installing a plastic pitch. Could do that and retain a grass playing surface if you had the land and / or money.

Hope that's not it done looks like it could do with a good stretch. 

I was dropping off at the training ground today and it was looking great.

I'm no expert on astro  turf and was left wondering why a tractor was pulling a wooden pallet up and down the length of the park.

It might be to evenly distribute the black pellets or to brush the turf.

Everything has been the will of the majority voting members. Some fans are happy to (shock horror) save the club they support money wherever they can. 

We pay a third of the surface with money that equivocates to about 7p a day for each person and we should expect to play on the pitch for free? :lol:

With the amount of money spent by supporters over the years , they should all get the opportunity to play on the Greenhill Road pitch for free .

Also, a Testimonial Match especially dedicated to the Fans should be a given , maybe once every 10 years.

Saints v Real Madrid or Barcelona or Man Utd, etc.

It would be free entry as a major thank you to the fans for our unwavering support of the Club we love and pay for.

Same can be said for fans of every team. We’re no different, it’s just the way football has went. It’s all about money and that’ll likely never change again. Bigger the team you support, lighter your pocket. 

Clubs are not in a position to ignore any possible income streams.

This thread was specifically started by you regarding increasing income if we had a synthetic pitch at the stadium. Now you’re saying we should let fans play for free and get rewarded with free matches against Man Utd.

If you think that should be our reward, god knows what you think Man U fans should get for the extra money they fire into that club.

175 quid seems rather steep though!

A wee reward to all our fans is all I ask. 

A glamour Testimonial match every 10 years is not too much and fans getting a kickabout on the Greenhill Road pitch at home matches, say at half time would be a great gesture by our Club who we heavily fund at some outrageous prices.

Against Man U, Barca or the likes without recouping any of the cost from ticket sales, aye good luck with that!

As much as I agree football prices are shocking, they're still in line with other clubs at our level and way cheaper than following some teams. It's just the way it is, not practical to ignore an income stream because of it. Just a fact of modern football.

So we just have to accept the shite that Football gives us. 

It will be £30 soon for Admission to a St Mirren league match. 

Every Club in Scotland could decrease admission prices in 2 or 3 years time with suitable adjustments to their budgets. 

Most of the 40 Clubs could be part time and still more or less be in their same Division and league place. 

And a Testimonial match for fans every 10 years is not too much to ask for.
