We are delighted to announce a new partnership for the club with 1st Alliance (Ayrshire) Credit Union.
Starting immediately our supporters can sign up with 1st Alliance and will be given the opportunity to start saving straight away and have an option to take a loan out covering the cost of a season ticket for the 2016/17 season and also the new home top if required.
This gives our fans the option of spreading the cost over a period of time whilst also giving them access to a one stop local service that offers secure savings, attractive loan packages, pre paid debit card and a transparent bank account.
The first part of the process will be to become a member with 1st Alliance which you can do by contacting their office on 01294 557 123 and asking for an application form or visit their website at www.allianceayrshire.co.uk
The credit union are holding an information day at the Ally MacLeod hospitality suite between 10am and 3pm on Friday 29th January. Come along and find out for yourself the benefits of the credit union and with the relevant ID and proof of address you can sign up on the day.
1st Alliance Partnership Manager Craig Potter, who trained as a YTS at Somerset PArk said :”We want to make the cost of watching football affordable for everyone. Fans who become members with us will have the option to take a loan to pay for their season tickets. Everyone will be looked at on an individual basis and we will be encouraging people to save towards their season ticket. Members will then have full access to a number of other services that we offer.”
Commercial manager Graeme Miller said :”This is something the fans have wanted for years, the option to be able to pay a season ticket on a monthly basis. I met Craig Potter from 1st Alliance at the Ayrshire Connections event and within minutes we realised we could have something that would hugely benefit both parties. We’re really excited about the partnership and hopefully it will encourage more fans to snap up season tickets. Liverpool have a similar scheme with the Spirit of Shankly supporters union which works very well however we believe this is the first initiative of this kind in Scotland.”
