Season Ticket holders should please note that the deadline has passed for their seats being held for this match and that all seats are now released for general sale.
Please note that with our ticketing system that all tickets purchased are printed with a row and seat number, therefore if you want to purchase a specific seat you can only do so up until the close of business the day before each match. This is to keep the queues outside to a minimum on matchday.
Electronic Ticketing System
At the Paisley 2021 Stadium we have an electronic ticketing system installed by Interstadia in place at the turnstiles.
The process of using the system is fairly straight-forward and easy to use:
* On entering the turnstile you will see the ticket reader (see picture above).
* Place your match ticket (with the barcode facing upwards) or smartcard – into the aperture
* Once the ticket/smartcard is accepted into the system the green light will illuminate and an audio alert will sound after which you should hear the turnstile being unlocked
* Push the turnstile gate and enter the stadium as you normally would.
The whole process will only take a few seconds.
Please note that there will be stewards in attendance to help where required.
How to Get Here

Car Park Access
We have a limited amount of spaces available in section Black and section White of the Car Park.  These spaces – which will be sold on a game by game basis – are available at £4 each with tickets for the spaces on sale at the Car Park gate.
Street Parking On A Match Day
The Club has been made aware of problems occasioned by inconsiderate parking in the area of Tannahill Road.
Seemingly supporters are parking despite the presence of double yellow lines and as a consequence local bus routes are also being blocked because streets in this area are narrow and fans are parking on both sides. People, many of whom are elderly, are having to walk from Greenhill Road to their homes because buses can’t get access.
Residents who have cars parked in driveways are experiencing similar difficulties getting their vehicles in and out. On being approached by local residents some supporters have been somewhat aggressive which could lead to confrontation.
St Mirren Football Club strives to be a good neighbour and we would ask that ALL supporters attending the stadium not only park in accordance with local parking restrictions but also give consideration to the needs of local residents by parking sensibly so as not to occasion an unnecessary obstruction.
Picking Up & Dropping Off by Car on Match Day
We are also aware of problems with patrons parking at the front of the Main Stand to pick up disabled supporters at the end of the game. This area is a ‘no parking’ zone on match days (with cones on the road) and has to be kept clear for emergency access. It is an inappropriate location for disabled spectator uplifts, as not only does it cause an obstruction on the road, it also causes a danger to pedestrians leaving the stadium.
Please note that the designated pick-up/drop off points are either in Drums Avenue or the two lay-byes on Ferguslie Park Avenue.
