Melbourne City FC has today announced a new multi-year exclusive partnership with Laybuy, a global leader in Buy Now, Pay Later payments technology.
The agreement sees Laybuy join Melbourne City FC as a Premier Partner and the Club’s official Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) provider, assisting members and fans with a new and easy interest-free payment option for all their ticketing and merchandise purchases.
Laybuy will be displayed on Melbourne City’s A-League shorts for the upcoming 2020/21 season, as it was for the Club’s 2020 Semi Final and Grand Final appearances, as well as included in the pitch side LED display.
Since launching in 2017, Laybuy has grown rapidly in the UK, New Zealand and Australia and allows people to spread to costs of their purchases interest-free over six weeks.
Laybuy Managing Director Gary Rohloff: “At Laybuy, we are enthusiastic supporters of football and we are really excited to be partnering with Melbourne City FC to provide fans with an innovative new payment option.
“Laybuy will make it easier for Melbourne City FC fans to watch and support their team by allowing them to buy their tickets, or merchandise, and stagger the cost with six equal weekly repayments. Best of all, unlike credit cards, Laybuy customers don’t pay interest, ever!”
Brad Rowse, Chief Executive Officer of Melbourne City FC, said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Laybuy to the Melbourne City FC family.”
“We are an organisation built on people and are looking forward to this new partnership with Laybuy which will support and enhance the experience of City members and fans.
“Our partnership with Laybuy will be propelled by our shared values of innovation and providing a positive experience to the people whom with we operate. We are delighted to welcome such a respected brand into the City family.”
