Still flying the flag for Paisley
St Mirren FC will continue to fly the flag for Paisley’s UK City of Culture 2021 bid with an extension to a deal to keep its stadium name in place until the end of May — despite the town missing out on the title to Coventry.
The news is announced as the club erected new signage outside the stadium and is an extension of the original two year two-year sponsorship and stadium naming rights deal struck with Renfrewshire Council in November 2015.
The venue was renamed from St Mirren Park to mark Paisley’s bid.
Paisley 2021 bid director Jean Cameron said:“St Mirren are at the heart of the community and we are delighted to have their continued support.
“Paisley’s bid journey has been a positive one and will continue.
“The Paisley 2021 stadium forms part of this legacy and keeps the name going.”
St Mirren director Tony Fitzpatrick added: “The fortunes of the town and the club are interlinked and we are delighted to continue with our support of Paisley 2021.”
