A Fact

St. Mirren are currently constructing a new stadium, New St. Mirren Park.This match was to be the last matched played at Love Street.
St.Mirren played in five Scottish Cup semi-finals at home on the original Love Street Grounds. Crowds regularly reached 10,000 and peaked at 16,000 for the 1906 semi-final clash withThird Lanark. The visit of Rangers in the 1923–24 Scottish Cup took the ground attendance record above 40,000 for the first time and twelve months later in 1925, Celtic came to Love Street and the attendance record rose to 47,428.

After the post-World War II boom in attendances, the record was broken again on 20 August 1949 with another visit by Celtic, this time in a Scottish League Cup match in front of a crowd of 47,438.

Once the Love Street End had been squared off, the capacity fell and the largest crowd was another visit of Celtic in the Scottish Cup 1979-80 fourth round replay when 27,166 squeezed inside, leaving huge queues on Love Street locked out.

The all-seated capacity is now 10,800 and the highest attendance under that capacity was 10,261 for an SPL game against Dunfermline Athletic.

In 1923, 25,000 fans watched as Scotland played Wales in the British Home Championship
