Port Saints FC reserve the right to determine whether a refund is appropriate for each case. In some cases we may still be required to pay the FFA, NNSWF & FMNC fees, so if we determine a refund is appropriate, it may only be the PSFC portion that is refunded. The following will be used as a guide to assist the club in determining the amount of any refund;
- What costs has the club reasonably incurred due to the registration?
- What percentage of the season has been played?
- Are there any extenuating circumstances to consider?
How is all the money spent?
Port Saints FC aim to minimise the cost of playing football in a number of ways, including;
- Effectively managing and maintaining equipment
- Achieving value for money with all gear purchases
- Providing valuable sponsorship opportunities to raise funds
The club is often asked how the registration fees are used. Below is a summary of the income and expenses for the club for 2016.
