Fans with football tickets for matches at St Johnstone's McDiarmid Park stadium are sure to enjoy their visits to the beautiful city of Perth, a former capital of Scotland. And at the specialised website Ticket4Football.com you can secure your own football tickets for games played by the club, which derives its name from Saints John's Toun, the ancient name for Perth.
St Johnstone were founded in 1884 but did not join the Scottish Football League until 1911. They first made a major impact in the early 1960s and early 1970s when they reached the League Cup Final, losing 1-0 to Celtic in 1969 in front of 73,067 fans at Hampden. And in 1971 they defeated German giants Hamburg in the UEFA Cup.
In 1989 Saints moved from Muirton Park to the UK's first all-seated, purpose-built football stadium McDiarmid Park – named after the farmer who donated the land on the outskirts of Perth. They lost 2-1 to Rangers in the 1999 Scottish League Cup Final and finished third in the Scottish Premier League that season.
After being relegated, they returned to the Scottish Premier League in 2009 and have earned a reputation for playing attractive, attacking football under manager Derek McInnes.
Famous St Johnstone players from the past include Sandy McLaren, John Connolly, Henry Hall, Ally McCoist and John Brogan. Former managers include Bobby Brown, Willie Ormond and Owen Coyle. The current St Johnstone squad includes players from Australia (Danny Invincibile), Ireland (Alan Maybury), Finland (Peter Enckelman) and Trinidad (Collin Samuel).
The capacity of McDiarmid Park is 10,673 and its record attendance was set in 1999 when 10,545 saw Saints take on Dundee in the Scottish Premier League.
