The Financial Stuff

Fees

VUFC is committed to maintaining a reasonable fee status and aims to keep the Football Club fees affordable for as many families as possible, while at the same time meeting the expectations for our members and improving the quality of the facilities and football services offered to our members.
 
It is important to note that playing fees paid by members at VUFC do not cover all the cost of running this Club. The remainder comes from sponsorship, clubhouse income and fundraising events. Even allowing for these initiatives, the playing fees are still in line with other Clubs at the same level.

Payment Options

Registration fees are payable at the time of registration either online or in person. There are a few options with regards to how you can make that payment:

Option 1 - full payment by credit or debit card

Option 2 - EFTPOS and cash payments are accepted in person at the VUFC clubhouse.

Option 3 - BPAY (may be coming in January)

Option 4 - PAYMENT PLAN :

This affords members the opportunity to make incremental direct debit payments to VUFC for 60% of their fees. . The other 40% must be paid up front, at time of registering.  A member may request a payment plan online at time of registering. They will then agree with the Club Registrar to a payment schedule from their nominated bank account for the 60% of their fees. Note there is a small fee for teach direct debit. Other fees are incurred if the payment schedule is not adhered to. The payment plan & payment of the full fees must be completed before June. 


Incomplete registrations (registrations where details have been entered but no payment has been made) will be cancelled at the cessation of the registration period. Please refer to our website for registration period opening and closing dates.

Players will be placed in a squad after the registration fee payment parameters outlined above are met.

We are unable to hold places in teams which are designated "registration ready" if fees are not organised.

Fair Play Vouchers

Fair  Play  Vouchers


VUFC participates in the Queensland Government's ‘Fair Play Voucher’ (FPV) programme. Parents, carers or guardians can apply for a voucher valued up to $150 for their child to be used towards their fees. The government opens windows  for these every few months. We ask that you pay for your fees in full & once the window opens & you receive your voucher, email it to us & we will provide you with a refund.

Or, if you have the voucher before you register, Majestri, our club registration system, now allows members to upload their vouchers into the system from within their registration checkout.

 Please click here  https://www.qld.gov.au/recreation/sports/funding/fairplay  for more details and eligibility.
