Match: St Mirren v Rangers 06/03/11

Published: 3/6/2013


This match was also the first that St Mirren issued some parking spaces for us away wheelchair fans which was a much welcomed bonus.

St Mirren Park is the newest stadium in the SPL but alas the architects seemed to have spurned the rare opportunity to install first class wheelchair facilities, I don''t mean to sound churlish by saying that it just seems they moved backwards instead of forwards when they moved from Love Street.
At Love Street the carer sat side by side and had clear unobstructed views of the whole pitch including the near goal line, although the wheelchair spaces were located at the front of the stand the way the stand was designed and constructed meant that our views weren''t obstructed by people entering and exiting their seats.

At the New St Mirren Park we are usually allocated spaces in the North Stand with means our view of the near goal line is obscured by an additional row of advertising hoarding ( though I have only been there for live televised games so the additional hoarding may not be in place for a run of the mill SPL games), the wheelchair spaces are located in front of the first row of seats, there is ample space behind the barrier to manoeuvre wheelchairs and to allow the crowd to walk pass. An unfortunate side effect of this design of stand is that the view gets blocked especially with fans arriving late and prior to half time and full time. Toilets and food kiosks are easy to locate and are of a good standard. The area round the ground is very flat and very well laid allowing for easy wheelchair movement.

On one visit to New St Mirren Park we were allocated spaces at the front of the West Stand, these allowed a far superior unobstructed view of the whole pitch and made viewing the match a far more pleasant experience. The spaces are set up in the same manner as the North Stand but the problem with other fans entering and leaving is much less. Given the choice I and most of the other wheelchair users would choose the West Stand over the North Stand every time. It seems strange that the West Stand lays vacant of wheelchairs when we are allocated the inferior North Stand.

Match: Accessible Car Parking For Away Fans At St. Mirren Park

Published: 3/6/2013


It was recently brought to the attention of St. Mirren F.C. difficulties which away fans had encountered when trying to access parking at the new stadium.St. Mirren wanted to react quickly and positively putting in place a solution which resolved the problems.

Hopefully you will be familiar with the entrance to the car park behind the North Stand which is used to accommodate away fans? To the right of the car park entrance there are a number of accessible parking spaces adjacent to the all weather five a side pitches.In advance of each fixture St.Mirren will send to the visiting club 8 passes which they in turn can distribute to travelling supporters who are disabled. On arrival at the car park you should hand your pass back to the steward at the entrance. The accessible spaces are clearly parked,have a good surface and are very near the entrance to the stadium for away fans.
