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.

The Finances
Next Stages & Long Term


St Mirren and its role in the Paisley community is precious and could never be replaced; this deal means the club can stay forever in the hands of the people who will care for it most...you;

You and other SMISA members will be able to help influence the running of the club; never before have fans been able to directly elect their own representative on to the club’s board;

Members will be able to decide how their money can be used to take the club forward; if we want to, we can permanently enshrine youth development and community at the heart of the club;

Gordon will work with the fans on a smooth and gradual transition to majority fan ownership over the long-term; we’ll have the time we need to make sure we do that right;

This process will be led by Saints fans, for Saints fans. It belongs to everyone with the club at heart and everybody will have the chance to help shape what happens next;

"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."
