Clarification on season ticket direct debit payment.
Wigan Athletic wish to clarify the process by which supporters can pay for their season tickets via finance.
Since April 2014, the law has changed so that the club no longer has the legal authority to directly offer a direct debit facility for season tickets to be paid in instalments as it has done in years gone by.
Instead, the law now requires Wigan Athletic – along with every other company offering direct debits – to have in place a license to operate a finance scheme.
Due to the law changes, it is not cost effective to offer the scheme ourselves and instead Wigan Athletic have teamed up with V12 Season Ticket Finance to offer supporters the facility to continue paying in instalments.
V12 Season Ticket Finance carry out standard underwriting checks before offering the service. As a responsible lender, V12 Season Ticket Finance may refuse some customers credit facilities - Wigan Athletic will consider each individual case to ascertain their season ticket-buying history and offer assistance wherever possible.
All queries regarding this issue should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
