Football Team Credit Cards

Most major football teams now offer their own credit cards. These allow fans to show their support by owning a specialised card, and in many cases also offer tailored rewards and promotions for the cardholder. In some cases, cardholders can also put money back into their team by giving the club a percentage-based donation every time the card is used (though this doesn’t usually cost the cardholder anything extra). Football cards often offer competitive APR rates, as well as market-friendly deals on balance transfers and purchase rates.

Many football credit cards earn your team money every time you spend, at no extra cost to you.

Loyal supporter

You can show your loyalty to your favourite football team even more by using an affiliated credit card, which gives back to your club.

If you want to demonstrate your passion for your football team through your spending, as well at the ground, it is likely the club will have a branded football credit card with your club’s badge and colours. It works like an affinity card with the card account linked to your football club.

Many football credit cards earn your team money every time you spend, at no extra cost to you. The card itself features the logo of your team displaying your allegiance to your team. This support goes further as your card provider will donate a percentage of your spending to your team.

Become an asset to your team

By using a football credit card:

  • Your spending will have direct financial contribution to your club.

  • You may receive interest free deals on season tickets.

  • Receive a discount in the club shop.

  • Some give reward points that you can redeem against ticket sales and merchandise.

Rewards

Many Football Credit Cards reward you for spending, enabling you to redeem points against merchandise, experiences, travel packages and retail vouchers.

Football Credit Cards are affiliated to more than 50 English football clubs, the England team, the Premiership and Championship competitions and the Scottish Premier League.

Good introductory offers

If you take a look at the range of football cards almost all of them offer 0% on balance transfers for an example 12 months, and 0% on card purchases for a limited time. After this the APR is a typical 15.9%.

Balance transfers can be useful if you have a balance or several sitting on other cards at any rate of interest. If you transfer the amount onto a 0% card this will give you the chance to pay as much as possible off, safe in the knowledge that all your repayments are paying the debt alone, without having to service the added burden of interest.

The 0% on purchases that many football cards offer is also handy. Say you want to make a large purchase; you’ll be able to spread the payments over a period of time without creating any extra interest.

The cost-effective way to use this type of card however, is to ensure that you pay for the purchase within the 0% offer period otherwise the item will cost more than you originally paid for it, in interest payments.
