As a responsible employer St Mirren Football Club continues to follow guidance from the Government and the Scottish Football Joint Response Group with regards to the coronavirus pandemic.
The SPFL Board yesterday confirmed that all Ladbrokes League fixtures are postponed pending any Government order and/or further direction from the Scottish FA. You can read the Scottish Football Joint Response Group’s latest statement here.
In order to protect club staff and our supporters we feel that we have no option but to close the stadium to the public from today, Tuesday March 17th, and encourage our staff to work from home until further notice.
The club shop and St Mirren airdome will also be closed with all airdome lets cancelled as of now. Unless we receive any official advice that changes these arrangements we will review and update our decision every Tuesday on our website and on social media.
We will, of course, continue to communicate with our supporters through our website, social media and Buddievision and we will be trying to come up with different ways of filling the void created by this situation. We will be making access to Buddievision free until matches resume.
Supporters can still get in touch with us via email or by phone if necessary.

In line with Government policy, Street Stuff activities are currently running as normal within the local communities. This will be reviewed and updated on a daily basis by Renfrewshire Council.
The St Mirren Charitable Foundation will keep people updated on their community support and program delivery through the club website and social media.
St Mirren chairman Gordon Scott added: "This is clearly an unprecedented situation we are facing and we will continue to follow advice given from the Government and the Joint Response Group.
"The club will monitor the situation on a weekly basis and will provide regular updates on stmirren.com and through our social media platforms.
"While the club will take a hit financially, I’d like to assure all our fans that, thanks to their support over the last four seasons, we are in a strong position to get through this difficult time and with your continued support and understanding we will see this through.
"Until we have clear advice on whether the rest of the season will continue or be brought to an end we cannot comment further.
"As a club and in partnership with Street Stuff and the St Mirren Charitable Foundation we are looking at ways we can help those in need at this time. We are unsure what form that will take as the information on the control of the virus changes on a daily basis and we cannot put anyone at risk.
"If anyone is interested in volunteering to help in whatever form that might take can you please email your contact details to [email protected] and state whether you have your own transport or not.
