the summer of 1922, St.Mirren were invited to Spain by Barcelona FC, to take part in events to officially open their
new £75,000 stadium at Les Cortes.
This was a big honour for the club and they decided to arrange more matches
against other sides and make a full tour of the journey.
Whilst in Spain they were made welcome by several ex Paisley
Mill workers and their colleagues from the nearby mill, owned by Paisley's own, J+P Coates
They provided hospitality
before and after the matches in Barcelona, and much welcome support during the games.
In total Saints played seven
matches on the tour and details of each period of the tour can be found on the links below.
