Automatic membership renewal

You can authorise ESPN to renew your membership annually for up to 3 years and your credit card will be charged each January. It is not possible to do this using a debit card because of complexities in international transfers but it can be done with a credit card.

Please ensure that your credit card will not expire before the end of the automatic renewal period requested. If this does happen, ESPN secretariat will contact you to request updated details. If the membership fee increases during this time, ESPN secretariat will alert you before taking a payment.
