Borrowers and savers with Britannia are helping to shape the Rooneys and Lampards of the future through the lender’s football accounts.
The society’s range of save and support accounts and mortgages return annual bo-nuses to football clubs including Chelsea (pictured).
In the past eight years, more than £20m has been presented to 13 Premiership, Championship and League One teams.
And clubs across the country have already netted £3.5m this season thanks to Britain’s second largest mutual and its football fanatic members.
The scheme works by allowing fans to pledge help for their clubs either by opening Britannia save and support accounts or choosing football club mortgages.
Money presented by Britannia and its fan members has helped towards the funding of player development schemes, youth academies and contributing to the development of clubs – shaping the football stars of the future.
Tim Franklin, managing director of member business at Britannia, says: “We are the leading financial services provider in this market and it is fantastic that we are able to return such huge bonuses to these clubs.”
