Announcement Temporary Club Websites Payment Policy (Aug 2020 to Feb 2021)Thursday, August 6th, 2020
Clubs wishing to pay by bank transfer may experience additional 7 to 14 day delays when wishing to pay or renew their website subscription between August 2020 and February 2021 due to a temporary staffing absence.
