The saying goes that these days, there is an app for everything. If you are in Perth for a visit, then you should definitely consider watching a Scottish Premier League match. Perth’s team is St. Johnston, who get their name from St John the Baptist Church in the city. Perth was originally called St John’s Toun (St John’s Town), and that is where the Saints get their name from.
If you want to watch a game while on your stay in the region, then the best thing to do is download the club’s app which features all the information such as fixture dates and what tickets are available. Football clubs normally have very secure websites and apps due to the risk of fraud in issuing tickets and payments. Most of them utilize high security software such as that developed by www.holmsecurity.com to ensure that all transactions are safe and secure for both the club and the person purchasing the tickets.
Football is taken very seriously in Scotland and you have to book your seats early and the best way to do that is online. You can take a chance at turning up on match day, but the tickets offered by the touts may or may not be genuine and will also be at inflated prices.
There might be some tickets available on the door, but these will usually be poor seats that are left over from what has already been purchased online.
As a visitor, you will also want to buy yourself a scarf or a team jersey, which you can also do through the club’s online store. You can, of course, just buy one when you get there, but again, these will be more expensive than if you used a secure transaction on the internet. Once you get yourself a beer and a pie, it is then time to watch a match in true Scottish style.
