All our attention turns to Saturday as football makes its return at long last.
The 2020/21 season gets underway with Saints playing host to Livingston at St Mirren Park in our first competitive match since our 1-0 win over Hearts in March.
It’s been a long time and while matches will start behind closed doors, anyone who has bought a season ticket will be given free access to live streams of all home matches while COVID-19 restrictions are in place.
Season ticket holders will be given a unique ID based on the name on their season ticket and the number, our managers access would be jim-goodwin-012345678910 We will have more details tomorrow on test events happening this week to ensure everything is in place for Saturday’s match.
We will require accurate email addresses from everyone, with a test email being sent out at 6pm this evening. If you do not receive a test email from us please contact [email protected] with your full name, season ticket number (the number on your season ticket card) and an accurate email address. Please remember to check your spam folder for this test email.
Season ticket holders will also be given three months full access to our new St Mirren TV platform. We have been working hard with our partners at Stream Digital to develop the new site that will see us move away from our existing St Mirren TV and Buddievision platforms.
The new platform will be priced at £5.99 per month or £59.99 for UK & Ireland subscribers, while international subscriptions are set at £14.99 per month and £149.99 per year. International subscriptions will include all the benefits of UK membership as well as live streams from all home and away Scottish Premiership matches next season.
We can also announce that the SPFL has agreed to allow clubs the opportunity to sell pay-per-view passes for home matches whilst social distancing measures are in place. More details on this can be found in the FAQ below
