Leeds United financial services company kicks off

Leeds United became the first UK club to offer a comprehensive range of financial products this week with the launch of a dedicated financial services company.


The company, backed by Allied Dunbar and Skipton Building Society, will offer the club&#39s fan base a range of life, pension and mortgage products.


To boost the launch, any supporter completing a financial consultation by the end of next month will receive a voucher for two free match tickets.


The average gate at Leeds&#39 home ground Elland Road last season was 35,000 including over 20,000 season ticket holders but the club is in contact with at least 100,000 fans across the UK.


Leeds is currently fitting out offices besides its stadium to house the new company but it will also market products over the internet.


Leeds United managing director Jeremy Fenn says: &#34A key objective of the club&#39s management is the continued broadening of the business base through the development of the Leeds United brand.&#34


Allied Dunbar regional director Andy Ferns says: &#34Leeds United has a proud history of offering first class football entertainment and top quality services to its fans and their families. We&#39re very pleased that we can add to that record by making our products and services available to fans.&#34
