#BuyTheBuds came about because we want St Mirren to stay where it belongs, at the heart of the Paisley community, for generations to come.

The power to make that happen is in your hands. Click each heading below to find out how...

The Basics

In summer 2016, SMISA and former St Mirren director Gordon Scott saw the terms of their joint offer to buy the majority shareholding in the club accepted by the former board.

That meant Gordon became the new chairman and majority shareholder of of St Mirren. At the same time, SMISA secured a 29% stake in the club and the right to elect a fan representative on to the club board.

We also have a legal option giving us the exclusive right to buy Gordon's shares within the next ten years and allow the fans to become majority owners of the club - keeping St Mirren in the hands of the community forever.



St Mirren’s place at the heart of the local community is precious. By making it majority fan owned we can keep it there and safeguard its future

We can keep St Mirren in the hands of the people who care for it most – you. Unlike other clubs, we can make sure unsuitable owners never get control of St Mirren

SMISA money is already taking St Mirren forward and investing in the assets we will one day own – and as a member you vote on where it goes

We are investing in the next generation of St Mirren players – as sponsors of the club’s youth academy and through our £50k investment in the new 4G pitch

We are proud to have also made possible: improved disabled facilities, community season tickets and pre-match entertainment for young fans, equipment for the first team…and much more

There can never be too many members. The more we have, the more we can do for St Mirren, and the more financially stable SMISA and the club are in the future

Our members can already influence how the club is run through electing a director on to the club board – and will have even more chances to shape the direction of the club in future

St Mirren is more than just a football club. We are already helping it build stronger links with the community, and can do more in in the future

Members get access to benefits including invites to events and the chance to win places at club events and hospitality

St Mirren has been at the heart of Paisley for generations. By signing up, you help secure that legacy for your children and the generations to come

"The thing that gave me the most satisfaction in my working life was my time with St Mirren and especially the stadium construction. When I go to a game or drive past the stadium it gives me an enormous sense of pride to see what I helped to build. My desire is to see us back where we belong at the top table of Scottish football and I firmly believe I can help achieve that, and then successfully deliver this club into the hands of the supporters."

Gordon Scott
