Sponsorship has been a major part of football for the past few years and shirt sponsors are a vital part of all clubs finances.

Over the years St.Mirren have had several shirt sponsors.

The first name to be emblazoned on the strips was Grahams Buses a local bus company that served the Paisley area. Their sponsorship lasted for four season between 1983 and 1987.

They were followed by Clydeside Scottish, at the time one of the main coach companies in the West of Scotland, who took over in time for the 1987 Scottish Cup Final and remained until 1989.

1989-1992 saw Kelvin Homes, a building firm take over.

The next six years saw an association with the motor trade with four different garages becoming main sponsors, Ingram Volkswagen (1992-93), Clanford Ford (1993-95), Phoenix Honda (1995-97) and Phoenix Mitsubishi (1997-98).

1998-99 saw return to the bus industry with Arriva Scotland who are part of one of the main bus, coach and train operators in the UK. Ironically they were to buy out previous sponsors Clydeside!

For the 1999-2000 season Saints went international with Malaysian manufacturing company Cetco displayed on the shirts.

As we entered the new millennium Saints signed a deal with one of the most popular Van companies LDV. Their sponsorship ran from 2000-01 to 2002-03.

For 2003-04 the club returned to the motor trade with Phoenix Car Company becoming shirt sponsors for two seasons. In a break with tradition, the sponsorship was shared between two franchises, with the home tops displaying Phoenix Kia and the away tops Phoenix Suzuki.

At the start of season 2005-06, Saints pulled off a great deal when they linked up with Braehead Shopping Centre, one of the countries biggest retail centres.

As we started season 2009-10 Braehead overtook Grahams Buses record of four seasons as shirt sponsors.
Season 2010-11 saw Braehead enter a sixth season as main sponsors, but, in a new move for Saints, they had a second shirt sponsorship deal, with local cab company, Compass Private Hire paying for their name to appear on the back of the shirts and on the shorts.

For season 2010-11 a special charity sponsorship deal was set up with both Braehead and Compass waiving their rights for their logo to appear on a special third strip produced for matches against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park. The front of the shirts displayed the Radio Clyde Cash for Kids logo and the back displayed Kan-Do - Scottish Project.

2011-12 saw another season of Braehead sponsorship, but only on the away top with sportswear firm Fila sponsoring the home tops.

For season 2012-13 Saints turned to Diadora to manufacture the kit and it was also them who sponsored them, with their name appearing on all three versions of the kit.
Alongside the shirt sponsor, season 2012-13 saw Braehead continuing their involvement with their logo appearing on the teams shorts.
At the end of February 2013, Saints signed a new car sponsorship deal with Mana Premiere, and their logo began appearing on the back of the team shirts.

For season 2013-14 Saints turned away from sportswear firms as main sponsor and teamed up with outdoor specialists Blacks, and their logo appeared on all three strips for the season.

Mana continued their sponsorship, with the logo on the back of the shirts and Braehead continued to have adverts on the shorts, although this time through parent company Intu.

 

Season 2014-15 saw strip supplier JD Sports return as shirt sponsor, with their 'King of Trainers' logo appearing on the strips.

Intu Braehead continued as shorts sponsor and two new sponsors took over the back of the tops, University of the West of Scotland on the away tops and Infinity Cars on the home.

These four deals continued throughout 2015/16 and 16/17.
