Season tickets

Season ticketing receivables transactions are structured slightly differently from other commercial receivables of the club

  • Given the higher degree of operational risk that is taken in these transactions, the diligence required by the investor is more directed at the underlying operational and capital structure risk of the borrowing club
  • Relegation scenarios are mandatory part of the due diligence on the business model
  • The provision of funding on this basis requires a greater degree of due diligence than some other forms of receivables funding as there is not a pre-existing contract with a single debtor or an arrangement with the league or association that can be looked to as the single source of and basis for that receivable.
