Britannia signs another soccer savings deal

Britannia Building Society has unveiled a partnership with Manchester City Football Club to offer savings accounts for supporters.

Britannia says fans will get what it describes as “premier league” interest rates as well as other benefits. It will pay up to 1 per cent on all balances in Manchester City savings accounts directly to the club. Details of interest rates will be published when the product is launched on February 2.

Britannia is one of the leading providers of football savings accounts, and has deals with clubs including Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool. The Manchester City deal brings the total number of clubs to nine.

The Manchester City save and support account, for adult supporters, and Manchester City junior saver account will be available through Britannia’s 15 branches in the greater Manchester region or via their call centre.

Manchester City football club chief executive Alistair Mackintosh says: “Fans who save with this savings account will be contributing toward the future development of the club, helping to ensure that we continue to be successful in the Premiership and aim our sights towards Europe.”

Britannia group chief executive Neville Richardson says: “Membership is core to everything we do, as it is in all football clubs, where providing success both on and off the field is imp-ortant to the fans.”
