ST MIRREN are ready to reward their loyal season ticket holders after the ‘vast majority’ told the club they would not be seeking compensation for any unfulfilled fixtures due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Scottish FA, along with the SPFL, confirmed last week that they had extended their initial suspension of all footballing activity across the country from April 3 to April 30 at the very earliest in order to limit the spread of Covid-19.

That has thrown the remainder of the 2019/20 season into major doubt, with the Saints’ final eight games all postponed indefinitely.

Jim Goodwin’s side had one home match left before the split, last weekend’s scheduled match against Rangers, before getting set for their post-split fixtures as they looked to preserve their Premiership status.

And with Buddies fans happy to see their season tickets out despite the uncertainty, the club have offered their loyal fans free entry to one league cup match next season as well as access to a pre-season friendly this summer.

A club statement read: “Given the uncertainties that still remain about when we will be playing competitive football again, the club needs to budget to ensure we can continue to pay all players and staff and make sure we are in a strong position to ride out this storm and continue our upward progress as a football club.

“The biggest commitment any individual supporter can make to our football club on a yearly basis is by buying a season ticket.

“The vast majority of fans getting in touch with us have said they do not want any money back from this years’ season tickets should the season not be played to a conclusion, and all at the club hugely appreciate your loyalty and support at this difficult time.

“However we feel the least we can do is offer something back, so we would like to offer all current season ticket holders entry to one league cup game and one pre-season friendly free of charge next year in return for not getting any compensation this year’s season ticket.”
