    Opening in 1989, McDiarmid Park has been the home to St Johnstone following the sale of Muirton Park.

    After selling Muirton to Asda, the land on which McDiarmid was built on was gifted to them by a local farmer who saw it as a gift to the people of Perth.

    It cost just under £5 million to construct the stadium and the highest attendance at the venue for a football match came on the 26th February 1991 against Rangers when 10,721 supporters filled the stadium.

    The stadium is a regular host of the Scottish Challenge Cup and has also hosted Rugby Union matches.

    From Glasgow (A9)

    On approach to Perth, first left at Broxden roundabout signed for Inverness (A9). Continue on the dual carriageway until the Inveralmond Roundabout, turn a full circle and head back up the ring road and take the first exit (signed for Perth). At the mini roundabout turn left. The stadium entrance is first left.

    From Edinburgh (M90)

    On approach to Perth take the Perth/Stirling/Glasgow slip road and then the Stirling/Glasgow/Inverness slip road immediately thereafter. Continue on the road until the Broxden roundabout where you should take the second exit signed for Inverness. Continue on the ring road until the Inveralmond Roundabout, turn a full circle and head back up the ring road and take the first exit signed for Perth. At the mini roundabout turn left. The stadium entrance is first left.

    From Dundee/Aberdeen (A90/M90)

    On approach to Perth take the Stirling/Glasgow/Crianlarich/Inverness slip road (Jct 10) which links up with the M90. Take second exit at Broxden roundabout (signed for Inverness A9). Continue on the ring road until the Inveralmond Roundabout, turn a full circle and head back up the ring road and take the first exit signed for Perth. At the mini roundabout turn left. The stadium entrance is first left.

    From Inverness (A9)

    On approach to Perth at Inveralmond roundabout take second turn off to Glasgow/ Edinburgh. Follow road for approx 1 mile then take slip road to Perth. At the mini Roundabout turn left. McDiarmid Park is on your left hand side.

    Note: When travelling via the Broxden Roundabout, although there is access to the stadium via the A85 signed for Crieff, on matchdays the Police require cars going to the stadium via the ring road NOT to exit onto the A85 but to continue on the ring road until the Inveralmond Roundabout, turn a full circle and head back up the ring road and take the first exit signed for Perth. At the mini roundabout turn left. The stadium entrance is first left.

    Public Transport

    The train station in Perth is some distance from the stadium - the best part of a 45 minute walk (uphill!). A taxi drive will take ten minutes and cost around £10. A short walk from the train or bus stations will take you to the city centre where there is a major bus interchange in Mill Street. The number 1 and Number 2 buses both depart from here and either will take you to a stop right outside the stadium - the number 2 is the slightly shorter route.
