CITY MEMBERSHIP TERMS & CONDITIONS:

City Member Recurring Payment Authorization: By enrolling in the City Membership, City Members give authorization to New York City Football Club, LLC (“New York City FC”) to charge my credit/debit card (or withdraw from my bank account via Electronic Funds Transfer, if so selected) for my annual City Membership dues (which includes the tickets described herein) and agree to the terms and conditions listed herein. Subsequent installment charges will be made to the authorized card/account in association with the chosen payment plan until the annual dues are paid in full. The City Membership will automatically renew for the following year in September of each successive Membership Year, unless either the member or New York City FC provides written notice of cancellation prior to this date. New York City FC will provide reasonable advance written notice (no less than 30 days) of the date on which the membership will renew and any applicable membership fee adjustments that may apply. The City Membership may be cancelled by the member at any time throughout the year for any reason, provided they submit thirty (30) days written notice by either (a) U.S. mail, certified return receipt requested addressed to New York City FC, ATTN: Fan Service, 600 3rd Avenue - 30th Floor, New York, NY 10016, or (b) completion of a form at www.nycfc.com/membership-cancellation of their election to do so. Upon cancellation, they will no longer be obligated for any future payments, but shall not be entitled to any refund for installment payments made prior to the cancellation.

Auto-renewal: 

City Members will have the first right to keep their seats for the following year, and as part of the auto-renewal program you won’t have to worry about renewing your seats season after season, missing a deadline, or losing your seats.

The auto-renewal program allows you to pay over 10 months for the 2016 season, and over the course of 12 months for all future seasons.

In future seasons, you will be automatically renewed in September via the payment method and plan you chose during initial enrollment. You’ll also be sent information giving you the option to relocate or add-on seats for each season.

Members also have the flexibility to cancel their membership at any time provided that you submit thirty (30) days written notice by either (a) U.S. mail, certified return receipt requested addressed to New York City FC, ATTN: Fan Service, 600 3rd Avenue - 30th Floor, New York, NY 10016, or (b) completion of a form at www.nycfc.com/membership-cancellation of my election to do so.  No refunds will be issued for cancelling your City Membership.

Members can opt back into the City Membership at any time, based on availability, and will be subject to a new seating location, pricing, and benefits. The membership account tenure will then be reset back at 1 year.

Reduction of the number of seats on existing membership accounts:

To reduce the number of seats on account, a member must call their Membership Services Executive directly, or call 855.77.NYCFC. Members cannot enroll online and reduce the number of seats. Please note, if your reduction in seats leaves a single, unoccupied seat, members will have to relocate all your seats.

Enrollment Gift & Membership Packages:

City Members will receive a one-time enrollment gift (backpack or messenger bag) for each seat on their account. All members will also receive the annual membership package with your Seasoncard(s) prior to the start of each season. 
Membership packages will be sent out in late February or early March, approximately 1-2 weeks prior to the first match of each season.

Seat Relocation:
City Members have the opportunity to relocate for the future seasons into seats that become available through the non-renewal of season tickets associated with The City Membership or new seating inventory that has been made available. Accounts interested in relocation are required to enroll into the membership at their current seat location and fill out a form that was sent via email in your personal renewal page with their specific interests/requests. All seats that are not renewed after the initial deadline will be dropped and other season ticket members will be able to relocate into those seats.

By signing up for the relocation process, you are not obligated to change your seats. If nothing better is available, you will still have your current seats secured. 

Our Membership Services Team will contact accounts based on when they became a City Member if any seats matching their request are available. All forms must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on 10/30/15. The seat relocation process after the initial Membership Enrollment process is complete.

Transferring Seats/Splitting Accounts

The primary name listed on the account is the owner of record of the season tickets. Splitting or transferring of season ticket privileges must be made from the season ticket member of record and will be done only after approval of, and at the discretion of the New York City FC. Splitting of seats on an account will only be considered if the new recipient has been listed as a Secondary Contact on the account for at least one full year (365 days) and all of the seats on account must have been purchased at the same time. Please note that season tickets may not be transferred from one season ticket account to another. Transferred season tickets will not maintain the same account data or status (City Member) as the original account holder.  However, you may retain this status if the tickets are transferred within the immediate family and proper documentation is provided. Corporate accounts may be transferred to the principal of the same company. Written correspondence must be on corporate letterhead. Please note, there is a maximum of one (1) account allowed per household.

Payment Plan Options:

There are two payment plans available. Pay in full, or monthly payments. The 2016 season will feature a 10 month payment plan (October - July). All future seasons will feature a 12 month payment plan (September - August). For future seasons, you will automatically be placed in the payment option you selected during initial enrollment.

City Members who enroll prior to October 30 will keep their monthly payments as low as possible by enrolling in the 10 month payment plan.

City members who enroll after October 30 will be required to make a lump sum payment to equal payment schedule based upon an October start date

Future monthly payments will be drawn on the 15th of each month
