Following the announcement that the Brighton & Hove Albion will phase out ecash at the Amex from next season, the club has confirmed the ecash top-up portal will be switched off on 31st March.
The club will continue to accept ecash payment until the final game of the season - and supporters are encouraged to spend their remaining funds in that time - but fans are advised that both the top-up portal and auto top-up scheme will cease from the end of the current month (March 2015).
Albion announced last month that the ecash system will be phased out, following the successful roll out of contactless payment options across the American Express Community Stadium.

The new system means home and away supporters can use contactless payment for credit or debit card for transactions up to £20 in kiosks, hospitality and in the Brighton & Hove Albion Store - rising to £30 in September of this year.
Those supporters who use ecash and have funds in their accounts are encouraged to spend the remaining amounts on their accounts before the end of the current season.
The club will continue to remind those fans with ecash funds of the impending changes - but those with balances of £10 or more at the end of the season will be eligible to apply for a refund by cheque. The club will not be able to offer or process any refunds after 31 May 2015.
