The FC St. Mirren (officially: Saint Mirren Football Club , in short: St. Mirren FC ) is a Scottish football club from Paisley , who since the season 2018/19 in the first-class Scottish Premiership plays.


FC St. Mirren - also known as The Buddies or The Saints - has been a pure football club since 1877, while in the years before it existed as a "Gentlemen's Club", which played cricket and rugby , among other things . The first football game took place on October 6, 1877 against "Johnstone Britannia". St. Mirren's local rival is Greenock Morton , who was first played in 1885. The club won the Scottish Cup three times in 1926, 1959 and 1987, and in 1980 the Anglo-Scottish Cup . In the 2005/06 season , FC St. Mirren was promoted to the Scottish Premier League . There they narrowly escaped relegation with the penultimate rank in the following season. In 2013 he won the Scottish League Cup.


In August 2005, FC St. Mirren received permission to sell the old St. Mirren Park Stadium, on which a Tesco supermarket was built. The proceeds have largely financed the new stadium in Ferguslie Park, Paisley City , as well as eliminating debt.

On January 3, 2009, St. Mirren Park, which has always been called Love Street like the address, saw its last game, a 0-0 against Motherwell.

The club has been playing in the new St. Mirren Park since January 31, 2009 . The stadium, called "Greenhill Road" by fans, has a capacity of 8023 seats.
