For supporters travelling via train, St. James’ railway station is directly across from the away North end of the SMiSA stadium and is a 2-minute train journey from Paisley Gilmour Street, on the main line from Glasgow, but please check times beforehand due to ongoing industrial action.

Alzheimer’s Scotland Can Collection Info:


To mark World Alzheimer Day, on Thursday 21st September, Alzheimer Scotland will be holding a collection outside the stadium. 


Currently there are over 90,000 people living with dementia in Scotland and this is expected to significantly increase in the coming years.  By donating to Alzheimer Scotland, we can make sure that local Dementia Resource Centres and Community Groups are still available and continue our support to people living with dementia and their families.


Stadium rules


The SMiSA Stadium is strictly a no smoking and vaping stadium.


Four turnstiles will be open to enter the stadium and two catering kiosks will be available inside the North Stand. The kiosks accept both cash and card.


Tickets are for an allocated seat and supporters should sit in the seat shown on their ticket.


Searching is a condition of entry and refusal to cooperate will result in entry being denied. Any supporter deemed to have consumed excess alcohol will be refused entry.


Fans are reminded not to attempt to bring any prohibited items into the stadium, including pyrotechnics which are inherently unstable and dangerous to the user and those in proximity.


Unacceptable conduct will result in ejection from the stadium and any supporter who has been ejected will face sanctions in accordance with our unacceptable conduct policy.


Flags should be within regulations and must have a fire certificate. No offensive or political flags will be allowed, and no flags will be allowed to cover advertising boards within the stadium. Flags can be placed at the rear of the away stand and the stewards will facilitate this.
