St Mirren moved to this purpose-built stadium in 2009. The ‘new’ St Mirren Park, as it is known was built by Barr Construction at a cost of around £8m. The ground is comprised of four separate stands, which are also modern and functional. It is one of the best stadiums in the Scottish Premiership.

Away fans are located at one end of the stadium in the North Stand, where just over 1,600 supporters can be accommodated. As you would expect from a new stadium, the facilities and playing action are good. It is one of the best stadiums in the Scottish Premiership.

The ground has improved dramatically with the whole ground being re-built over the last two decades. The latest addition is the new East Stand which was opened in August 2010. This 6,500-capacity seated stand, is single-tiered and is quite steep, keeping fans close to the playing action.
