Posh co-owners Stewart Thompson, Darragh MacAnthony and Jason Neale celebrate winning promotion from League One last year.

It’s a fund-raising initiative to help finance key club infrastructure projects while allowing supporters to get a return on their investment. A safe standing area within the London Road End of the ground is a priority as the club would not be able to use a terrace if they return to the Championship. A modern sports bar open seven days a week is also a target.

Funds raised over the initial target of £1.5million will be allocated to the first phase of work towards a new stadium for the city, namely the architectural, surveying and engineering work required to submit a formal planning application.

The bond is effectively a loan to the club. The Posh Bond will pay a fixed rate of interest over its five-year term, after which the amount invested will be repaid to the Bondholder. The key terms of the Bond are as follows: 1) 9% interest per annum, 2) 15% cash bonus if Posh are promoted to the Championship by 2026/27; 3) Eligible for tax-free returns through an Innovative Finance ISA; 4) Minimum investment £500.
