St Mirren are ready to give back to their season ticket holders, after the ‘vast majority’ told the club they weren’t looking for compensation due to unfulfilled fixtures.
At the moment, the football season is on hold as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
It is unlikely the 2019/20 campaign will be back up and running anytime soon with many parts of the world now practicing social distancing to slow the spread of the disease.

St Mirren had one more home game remaining before the split, and then a couple more at least in the final five games.
It isn’t known if the club will get to complete their fixtures, but supposedly most fans aren’t after compensation if the games don’t end up happening.
That has meant a lot to the Buddies, who are keen to reward their loyal supporters.
A club statement read: “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.”
What division St Mirren will be playing in, is anyone’s guess.
At present, the club sit ninth in the table having just beaten Hearts, and are two points ahead of Hamilton who occupy the play-off place.
If the season is to continue later this year, then Jim Goodwin will hope to see his side pull away from danger and preserve their Premiership status once again.
