As you know, SMISA is due to hold two events a year for our members, as part of the programme of benefits promised under the #BuyTheBuds campaign.
We can now confirm the next one will be a St Mirren Quiz, in the corporate hospitality suite at the Paisley 2021 Stadium on Friday 23 June, from 7.30pm.
Members will be able to test their St Mirren knowledge against fellow fans, with a number of St Mirren staff and ex-players also set to take part.
The exact number of teams will be worked out on the night but you can either form a team with a group of friends, or smaller groups could be combined into bigger teams.
A pay bar will be available on the night and there will be Saints-related prizes to be given out. However the terms of the licence means the event is only open to over-18s.
All Plus and Premium members are entitled to a free ticket for the evening and will be emailed separately with a link allowing them to do so. They can also buy a ticket for a friend for £5.
Plus and Premium members have a one-week exclusive period to do so - as of June 3, all remaining tickets will go on general sale to all fans for the same price (all money raised will be donated to St Mirren’s youth academy).
This way everybody paying a higher membership fee has the option to claim the place due to them, while giving other fans the chance to take any unclaimed places.
As always, if you have any questions, please send them to us at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible there on the night for what should be a great evening.
Youth team sponsorship
As you know, under the April £2 spend vote, members agreed to sponsor a local youth football team for next season.
We are asking interested teams to put their names forward and we will draw the winner, who will be given £700 to buy a set of strips, which will carry the SMISA logo. We will look to involve the team with the club over the next season where possible.
The draw is open to Renfrewshire-based boys or girls clubs, at age levels up to and including under-16s. The funding is for the club’s first-team kit and SMISA will provide branding for the front of the shirts.
If the club has money left from the £700 budget to buy other teamwear they can do so, but these must also be SMISA branded.
We have already made contact with local leagues to ask them to spread the word, but would also like to ask our members to put names forward too.
If any of you are involved with a club who will be interested, please email their name and contact details to [email protected] by May 31.
We hope you have a good summer, and we will be in touch soon with more updates
