Will I be subjected to a credit check and if so, who by?
Supporters will have a credit search carried out by Premium Credit. They have a minimum credit scoring threshold required to be accepted and a supporter needs to score above this. Premium Credit are not able to accept anyone who is in an IVA or recently been made bankrupt.
This will show on credit files as a hard credit search. Any disputes with a credit file will be forwarded to Premium Credit to investigate.
You will be contacted by Premium Credit or the Portsmouth FC ticket office if your application is declined. There is no minimum timeframe if you wish to reapply.
Is there a default fee?
Yes. This is £27.50.
How will the account of a non-payer be affected?
If a payment is missed and you are unable to make the payment within the allotted timeframe, you will be contacted.
Will the season ticket be paid for by direct debit?
Yes. This is across a period of eight months.
If an account is referred to Premium Credit, what is the timeframe for a decision to be made?
Most application will be turned around using Premium Credit’s automatic approval process, which takes a maximum of 30 seconds. If Premium Credit struggle to identify the supporter using this automatic approval process, it will then be referred to a manual underwriter, which can take a maximum of five working days.
What happens if I have a change in my financial circumstances?
These will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis and Premier Credit encourage you to speak to an adviser in their contact centre. Instances of illness or injury are also dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
