Free currency card for travelling fans

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

We’ve teamed-up with international payments and currency card providers FairFx to offer a free currency card for travelling football fans.

The card can help fans save money compared to using a traditional debit or credit card when spending overseas – FairFX say they average saving versus airports or the high street is 8% and 5%.

Free to FSF members, the currency card has the following benefits:

  • Great Euro rates with no transaction or management fees
  • Chip and PIN secure Mastercard
  • Re-usable for any trip
  • Check balance anywhere online or via FairFX’s free app

FairFX pre-loaded currency cards provide an alternative to carrying large amounts of cash when watching football abroad, or your own bank cards, which can get lost or stolen.
