Supporters Direct Scotland has launched a new affinity partnership with Create and Prosper which will see a potential financial boost from the pay back scheme to Football Supporters Trusts in Scotland and members of the ScottishFans.org network.
Formally announced at East End Park in Dunfermline Friday (3rd May) in the company of former Dunfermline captain Roy Barry and Margaret Ross, Chair of the Pars Trust as well as Chris Hodgson from Create and Prosper, the new fundraising scheme will bring financial benefits to fans and Trusts alike.
Mark Reid project manager at Supporters Direct Scotland, said: ““We’re pleased to put in place these two affinity partnerships in place that benefit Trust members and provide welcome new income for Supporters Trusts in Scotland. We hope to add more of these arrangements in the future to benefit all of our members”.
The affinity partnerships with ‘Create and Prosper Financial Services Ltd’ include discounted product offers for members of the Supporters Direct football Trust network within Scotland and “Scottish Fans” network partners. In addition the partner company themselves will give an additional proportion directly back to the trust or network member.
Margaret Ross, Chair of the Pars Trust said “I think anything that can help us raise money and also help our supporters save money in the process then it’s ideal and I look forward to seeing what we can make of it”.
Chris Hodgson, Director at Create and Prosper said: “We share a passion for football and as a firm we have a history of assisting sporting clubs and societies. With this in mind we are delighted to be given the opportunity to work with Supporters Direct Scotland and would like to offer the members of supporters Trusts and football fans the opportunity to benefit from our services whilst helping supporters Trusts or football clubs. In the event of proceeding with advice through Create and Prosper we will discount advice fees by 10% and also provide a 10% cash-back to the client’s nominated Trust, Club or network partner.”
