Refund Policy

EBSC Refund Policy


It is important that you understand the Club’s refund policy before paying your fees.


Despite the exceptional circumstances of 2020, EBSC was one of only a handful of clubs in Victoria to offer members a full refund or rollover of their fees. A substantial financial loss was incurred as a result. 


Football Victoria (FV) have confirmed that clubs will be charged for the season, irrespective of whether or not the season is cancelled or interrupted. FV have published their 2022 refund policy. We expect that FV will adopt the same position moving forward for 2022 and beyond. 

Given the above circumstances and taking into account that we have been living with Covid-19 for some time now, we are all better informed and aware of the risks and potential impact to community sport.


Unfortunately, the Club will NOT be able to offer members a full refund if the season is cancelled or interrupted. 


A partial refund will be available, based on the proportion of the season completed.


Please remember that we are a volunteer run, not-for-profit community sports club and that our fees are very affordable in comparison to other soccer clubs.


Registration Fee Refunds

Any player who is not offered a place in a team for the upcoming season will receive a full refund of fees.

Any player who is offered a place in a team and declines that offer prior to completing their PlayFootball player registration for the upcoming season will receive a full refund of fees.

Any player who is offered a place in a team and declines that offer after completing their PlayFootball player registration for the upcoming season will be entitled to a partial refund of fees.

Any player who is offered a place in a team and accepts that offer but departs the Club after the season has commenced will not be entitled to a refund of fees.

Requests for refunds due to extenuating circumstances will be at the discretion of the Club.

If the season is cancelled or interrupted due to Covid-19 restrictions, and less than 50% of the season has been completed, a partial refund will be calculated based on the proportion of the season completed. No refund will be available if 50% or more of the season is completed.

Fees will not be reduced for interruptions to the season due to short term Covid-19 lockdowns.

Partial Refund – Method of Calculation

The formula for calculating a partial refund of fees will be as follows:

EBSC player registration fee paid, less the PlayFootball player registration fee, less the applicable portion of the FV team registration fee, less the cost of the uniform, less the variable cost for the number of weeks completed for the season.

·    All costs are GST inclusive.

·    Uniform returns will not be accepted.

·    We will delay PlayFootball player registrations and the distribution of uniforms for as long as we can to protect member funds.
