Chase, Soccer United Marketing Offer Ultimate Rewards to Soccer Fans


WILMINGTON, Del. – Nov. 1, 2006 – Soccer fans who live and breathe for the game will want one of three Chase Ultimate Fan Rewards Visa credit cards, first-of-its-kind rewards credit cards created specifically for soccer fans and available now through a partnership between Chase (NYSE:JPM) and Soccer United Marketing (SUM). The rewards cards offer seven dynamic redemption levels with a wide range of rewards, from exciting soccer experiences to authentic memorabilia to earning a VIP trip to a men’s or women’s FIFA World Cup™ qualification game for two.

Soccer fans can choose between Major League Soccer (MLS), the U.S. National Team and the Mexican National Team Chase Ultimate Fan Rewards Visa credit cards featured in 12 different card designs. Cardholders - who can use the credit cards for all purchases, including everyday spending categories such as gas, groceries and dining out - receive one point for every dollar spent and can obtain soccer rewards for as few as 1,000 points. There is no annual fee and a 0% APR introductory rate.

“For the total soccer experience, soccer fans will want the Chase Ultimate Fan Rewards card,” said Heather Philp, senior vice president, Chase Card Services. “This credit card rewards program will allow true enthusiasts to elevate and enrich their connection to soccer beyond merely collecting gear and catching a game on television.”

“What is great about this program is that the rewards provide unique, once in a lifetime opportunities and significant value to true soccer fans,” said Doug Quinn, president of Soccer United Marketing Enterprises. “Whether you are an MLS fan, or a fan of the U.S. or Mexican National teams – there is a card for everybody.”

The Chase Ultimate Fan Rewards credit cards offer seven redemption levels, ranging from 1,000 to 100,000 points. For example, a U.S. National Team cardholder can redeem 1,000 points to obtain a U.S. Soccer Replica Ball, emblazoned with a U.S. Soccer Federation crest logo. For a 10,000-point redemption, the cardholder can obtain the U.S. Family Four Pack - four tickets to a domestic men’s or women’s national team game of choice, a parking pass and a concession stand voucher. At 100,000 points, the cardholder can redeem for the Ultimate Fan VIP Trip, which is a trip to a men’s or women’s FIFA World Cup qualification game for two, including airfare, lodging, VIP game tickets, field access during pre-game warm-ups, a stadium tour, and a customized jersey.

Soccer fans can apply for the Chase Ultimate Fan Rewards credit card at MLS, U.S. National Team and Mexican National Team games in the U.S., as well as all InterLiga tournament games, by visiting the interactive Chase booths located throughout the stadiums and through other channels.
